Nothing that sophisticated Tim. It's just a flat strip of tin wrapped round the flexi pipe, pinched together at the ends with a hole to bolt it to the strut. I haven't ever seen new ones but it would be simple enough to make.

The suggested new clips position can be seen top left holding the pipe to the bracket, with small hole showing.

Fay is right it is the top left one... I've found a source on ebay so I'll buy a set of 4. The clip Frank mentions I can't get off as the bolt is seized a bit of heat when I get up there next week should shift it.

I tried too post earlier but got booted out. I realised I was thinking of the attachment for the flexi hose itself rather than the journal to the brake pipe and acknowledged that Tim was correct.

Moral use a spanner the right size...the flexipipe clips are off so I managed to get one caliper back on still need the heat on the flexi to metal brake pipe as the union is corroded to the copper pipe and threatening to snap it so  will have to go easy on that one.The new clips work a treat

Hi all
Managed to get the other caliper on after a bit of heat loosened the flexi to metal pipe union...will try and get the brakes bled this week.

only a few months later!!! I managed to get all the front hoses and calipers back together and bled the front brakes single handed (Terry is in Vietnam!) using one of those very useful Gunson Eezibleed gadgets. The pedal felt a bit soft but a couple of pumps must of pushed the piston up against the pads and the pedal went firm. Must try and get a run round the block to give them a test. Dunno when...moving house soon but at least I will be only 30 minutes away.
Merry Xmas all

To make room for the sulking or is it hulking Appia the Y10 had to be put back on it's wheels and put through a 32 point turn to get it out into the corridor of the unit. We then tried to run it up and down the corridor but the combination of sticking rear brakes and not being able to tickover was very frustrating. I took a back wheel off and the drum is very reluctant to turn so it will have to come off. Question is the lumpy/non-existent tickover due to a) petrol gone off or b)a blocked jet?

Do you have an ultrasonic cleaning bath?  Can the carb be a "kitchen table" project rather than in the cold 100 miles from home?

Hi all
The drum has surrendered to a bashing from an aluminium club hammer and revealed the shoes looked to have been replaced but did not have a chamfer on the leading and trailing edges so making the drum a tight fit. After a bit more walloping with the hammer the drum was back on and with the wheel bolts lightly tightened the drum was quite free. So 10 laps of the compound later the brakes were functioning but the other rear drum was getting hot so that will need to come off sometime. Unfortunately 10 laps did not clear the blockage if there is one in the carb so question is can we drain the tank and clear the carb out and with some fresh petrol cure the cutting out after the engine has warmed up and the choke is pushed in.
Hi David
All the tools are now at the unit awaiting our move sometime around the end of the month so I will get a little playabout when the Appia is delivered on Friday.
