thanks for that what is the bore size on them as I have been told this is the correct way to identify as there are lots of variants

Thanks Ralph

just read your message sorry I didn't get back to you quicker.
The reason I wanted to do this was for a pending MOT. However just taken it there and they are telling me its not the wheel cylinder that is leaking but axel seals.....Do you have any of these in your Aladins cave? Not desperate as after cleaning up the shoes it passed the mot but would like to get this done in the summer. (could of had something to do with the diff oil been changed last summer...apparantly had to force oil in to get the old oil out)
Also another shout out for any inner wings for the Transit.....not an mot issue however been told that one of the inner wings has rusted through. I know the outer wings are like hens teath is it the same for the inners or are there pattern parts I can get my hands on ...again a job for the summer.

Thanks all and sorry Ralph for putting you to the trouble of checking out your brake cylinders.

Yes I have rear hub oil seals, I will sort you out a pair. I have one inner wing, I will find it & let you know what side.

One thing with brake cylinders, make sure you get it right between UNF and M10 on the unions. 1969 is probably just about when they changed.

I bought an M10 one by mistake and had to make a new pipe section to suit.

thanks Steve

got that sorted now just after inner wings however found out that there is not such a thing (or at least non that are available).did see some plates for front suspension struts on a popular auction site but mine are okay there, its just around the front where the headlights sit that have rusted......not an mot failure but something I want to get sorted. I guess I will be looking at a repair by a good welder but I am sure once you start to play around with it will be like opening a can of worms :P
