Morris Minor leaky brake pipe and service

 It's almost time for the bi-annual test and the Morris has been behaving well. Service time!
 The usual oil change greasing and adjustments and fixing a blocked windscreen washer.
Brakes cleaned and inspected. Maybe the handbrake can be improved by changing the shoes. Weĺl do that later.
 The differential was wet, but from brake fluid. Nasty! For some reason the pipe connected to the threeway block was leaking from the connector. As the pipe looked fine I made a new flare. The old flare was not straight. Still, it has been on the car without trouble for many years.  This just shows how important regular checks are.
The exhaust was loose.  Made an additional bracket to fix the exhaust to the block. Much better.
