A random selection of post about travel, and tinkering with mechanical machines. Mostly cars from 1937 to 1999, manufactured in English speaking parts of the world, but also kayaks and sewing machines. So here you can see how we travel, drive, paddle, break fix and find on a regular basis.
Still looking for the brake wobble I found one of the front brake cylinders weeping.
I thought I could change the seals, but the cup-type seals are different from the ring-type seals I found on the car. It seems these latter were replacement cylinders. Fortunately I also had a full set of new cylinders too, so I fitted one of these.
I did look inside the new cylinder and found these are the cup-type ones, so next time I can use the cup-type seals. After market parts are not all equal it seems.
