Wolseley 1500 Service, clutch slave and hose

The clutchpedal on the Wolseley 1500 did not feel very consistent. Inspecting the hose showed it to feel a little soft compared to other hoses. While under the car it was a good opportunity to change the oil, grease the suspension and check the brakes. 

To be able to fit a standard clutch hose I made up a new pipe with the correct connector to use with a clutch hose. 

With the slave cylinder off I decided to hone the bore and replace the seal and rubber. 

The hose itself is a Mini front brake hose I had available. 
New front tires too,  balanced and fitted
