Austin Seven Brakes

Time for the annual Sevenservice. Changed the engine oil and checked all the brakes.
For some reason the brakelights didn't work, but refitting the connections and pressing the pedal several times restored their function. 
Then I found a leaking wheel cylinder, so that one had to be replaced

This is the new cylinder. I'll order new ones so I can replace the others a.s.a.p.
Of course I could'nt fit the old brakeshoes, so here are some new ones. Luckily this Seven was modified to use Morris Minor brake shoes and hydraulics, so they are easy to find.
