Fwiw, I saw a urine sample yesterday that looked similarly.

How did you have an opportunity to see my urine sample?

   Jeebers Ben, you said you wouldn't mention that to anyone.

   Chris, if you're mucking around with that MG in order to enjoy it why stop at 80% of the lines? Bite the bullet and replace them all so you know they're all good. After all it's really a four wheeled two seater bike...right? Seriously with all this old stuff we seem to like I like to bring important systems up to date whenever possible.

Cheers and beers...Melder

I guess I wrote 80% of the lines, but I meant 80% of the system. 100% of the lines were replaced. Turns out, 44 year old rubber brakes lines are not the most efficient things in the world. The bizarre-est thing about this car is the suspension system (or lack of). Leaf springs in the rear, like a truck, and no shocks or springs. Theres a weird fluid filled contraption with a pivoting arm type thing with integrated control arms…

I have those x-ray glasses I bought from the back page of Boy's Life 50 years ago.
Seriously, if it had been yours, you wouldn't be writing as coherently as you are, serious urinary tract infection.

Ah, the infamous Armstrong lever shocks. Nothing provides the classic Brit feeling of making a smooth road feel as if one was riding on a fire road like the Armstrong. KInd of the shock absorber equivalent of Lucas!

Strangely, from all I've read, newer hydraulic shocks are of serious detriment to LBC's. Make the handling and braking go to hell. NOthing beats the originals, in some cases. Additionally, if I can get mine off (over the winter), I can send them to a small cottage in Wisconsin someplace and have them rebuilt to better-than-new for about $95/ea. A bargain!
