    Ok thanks for that will swap them back as have them the wrong way round..oh and thank you Haynes.
  2. Brake overhaul but no rear brakes

    Well ain't that a thing just tried to start and no start I've replaced all the fuel hoses (2.0e) round the fuel pump,filter and feeds think I may have got them crossed have feed as o/s and return n/s
  3. Brake overhaul but no rear brakes

    I will try that but ran out of time for now will get back to it next weekend.many thanks for now and will keep you informed of any progress.
  4. Brake overhaul but no rear brakes

    aaaaaaaaaaaah it's still the bloody same aaaaaaaaaaaah .sorry I feel better now.looks like my new master cylinder is duff all the air is out I have put lots through and no air bubbles fronts feel good rears awful.pump the pedal a few times then squeeze and pedal goes down a long way rears at first grip a little but easy to overcome and then can be turned by hand.
  5. Brake overhaul but no rear brakes

    New cylinders arrived today going to fit and bleed on Sunday hopefully that will be it can't think of anything else it could be I have even checked the brake lines for kinks.
  6. So the days are getting shorter and wetter as I don't have the luxury of a garage to store my car have had a monsoon cover before not over impressed first two(returned) leaked the third lasted barely 18 months before ripping itself apart.ebay is awash with covers from cheap and nasty to silly money any recommendations on a car cover?.
  7. Brake overhaul but no rear brakes

    I have bypassed the the pressure unit giving the rears a direct feed from the master on both front and rear outlets and it's the same result very little braking there.auto adjusters do work when the drums are off all I can think of now is an issue with the new wheel cylinders which I have just checked and have a piston of 24mm not 19mm as listed .
  8. Brake overhaul but no rear brakes

    I have noticed in the past that these one way bleed valves work but often air is drawn back in via the bleed nipple thread.
  9. Brake overhaul but no rear brakes

    I have just moved the auto adjusters a lot to take the slack up and it's not till the drums are dragging I get good solid brakes don't think the pistons are moving far enough hopefully due to air just got to wait for my wife to get in then bleed down the old reliable way.
  10. New master (20.64mm)and wheel cylinders (19mm)fitted fronts are fine but can't get rears to come on there trying but only dragging on the drums with brakes applied have the self adjusting type both have moved since fitting system is all bleed including the master so do I have a duff master or could it be the pressure control valve?. Brake system left for 10 years with fluid in a real mess!.
  11. Remove the mirror glass casing from the door mounting ( one screw/bolt underneath) find a washer or two think I drilled through a 2p coin use this to pack out between the casing and mount and refit only problem it will be fixed in the position you put it in.it worked for me and it only cost 2p.as for the running problem could be coil Breaking down under load fuel starvation is it carb or injection?.
  12. Fuse blowing

    If you haven't already remove and clean all the bulb and bulb holders does it blow immediately or when it feels like it.
  13. Security

    Find a lamp post sure this would slow them down....maybe a few issues with this idea though.
