Whilst doing my pre-MOT rounds, I noticed that one of the wheel cylinders at the back was leaking slightly. So, knowing Mr. MOT-Man would jump on that like a thing that really likes jumping on stuff, I resigned myself to having to replace that too, before going near the MOT garage.
Off to GSF for a new wheel cylinder, which I fitted that self-same day. [I also found time to change the oil & filter as well. You’ve got to hand it to me: when I do reluctantly decide to spring into action, I’m not bad!]
Luckily the cylinder hadn’t leaked onto the brake shoes, just around the back-plate. So I was spared the extra hassle and expense of having to replace those too.
