  1. A good way to find if they are too tight is to use a ring spanner. If they round off they were too tight...but that's a daft way to find out. :D

  3. Undid and blew through all of the pipes, the flexi's were well blocked at the back, replaced fronts

    Had to make a new length of kunifer up on the drivers side as it wouldn't bloomin reach the flexi!

    All seems clear now.. back flexi's, calipers and new shoes tomorrow than wait for a new master.. or take apart and clean the old one
