Didnt mean to ignore the air or grease tips. Sound good, but I am unsure about where and how to screw grease gun or compressor in (which I don't have anyway)
When I did my front brakes, the wheel cylinders were pretty much stuck (pistons), after taking them to a motor cycle workshop ,their airline could not move them.
I popped them in an old Chip pan fryer. with water on the hob.....and after some heat they popped out, differential expansion, I guess?
If you do the master cylinder, that can be a right pain in the bottom!....but its really getting it out, and getting it back...Good luck.

Sorry to interfere but if it were me, I would definitely fit new  flexible brake hoses. You say they are a few years old and certainly over time they have a tendency to collapse. They aren't expensive and to fit them now would be a piece of cake.

I will certainly get those flexis!

Anybody got thoughts on the water pump issue?

It is amazing how much of a difference heat expansion makes!

Quick question, should I be using a special grease for the water pump?

Ideally the calcium-based special grease for water pumps; however, a good quality lithium grease should be ok, Andrea

thanks, helpful

Some progress made this weekend

Water pump is assembled and fitted: we shall see how it fairs when the car is running. I got a spare from Jim incase it still weeps.

Machined front drums are ready.
Brake shoes have been returned, very nice, and no rivets, so will last a bit longer

I managed to get rear left brakes and hub on, quite a fiddly job.
Next weekend I will do the rest and bleed the system

Bonded shoes - dont run them any lower than you would if they were riveted. I have had a bonded shoe de-laminate causing interesting results on my Transit van..... It still has a few mm left to wear..... One side of the axle was locked solid....

I always specify 'bonded and riveted' - I am a great believer in belts and braces particularly where safety is concerned.

Bad back last weekend

Yesterday I sorted a few things. Photos below show water pump grease poking through three drain holes; hubs were thoroughly washed and dried and packed with greased, with cap put on until ready to put them back on; alternator bracket fabricated as per Don Cross’s diagram; rocker covers almost prepped for new crinkle paint. Phew!
