I'm having braking problems with my 33! Both front cylinders are weeping fluid and one brake adjuster has seized, so I've bought 2 replacement front brake backplates from the extremely helpful people at EssexDafs and I'm now starting to rebuild them. Unfortunately I've hit on a snag.... I've removed both front brake cylinders, as I had expected to, but I've been unable to match them to any in my parts catalogue! I know the REAR brake cylinders are identical to Mini ones, but the front ones AREN'T, so I'd appreciate anyone who can match up a part number, so I can carry on with my repairs....

The cylinders and repair kits I got the other day are all marked "front", but I have not yet unpacked them.I got some brake parts with the car, but have not identified them, so I will look at what i have to see what I have got, you are welcome to parts if they are the right type.
