Brakes

Hi, I have a 4 door 1968 Morris minor, and have heard that you can fit a remote mount brake reservoir in the engine bay! Can this be done with a standard brake set up with a standard brake master cylinder? What mods have to be made to the master cylinder to fit the new reservoir? Kind regards Richard

I haven't changed the drums they look pretty good! I've rebuilt the master cylinder. I adjusted each drum till they were locked then backe...

brakes

Hi all, My Moggie has just passed it"s MOT, Yes!! But one recurring comment from the examiner, who's really sympathetic to classics, is the brakes. He says there's a little too much pedal travel. I have replaced all the shoes, and cylinders and adjusted them correctly, the drums look really good wit...

Front dampers

Hi I've got a couple of questions for my 68 minor I have a slight leak on one of my front dampers, will this fail the MOT? If I fitted a modern damper kit does this mean the old dampers are not considered as part of the test? Could I then drain the oil from them if they have no further use? Thanks R...
