Austin Ten Conway oil change and brake service

It seemed the brakes on the Ten needed cleaning and adjustment. While up on the ramp I cleaned up the chassis a bit too after an oil change and a dirty session with the grease gun. 
Got a new top hose too. This seems to be a rather heavy duty item. I thought it didn't look entirely right, but the "correct" one I ordered looked a little bit flimsy, so I'll keep that as a spare for now. 
Mechanical brakes all cleaned and the linkages greased.
The ignition contact points needed cleaning and adjustment too. I'm still debating if I'll change to some form of electronic ignition or keep the classic points system.
