This is the one I bought, but obviously you may be able to find it cheaper or better!

The tale takes a new twist...

Yesterday I did some more work on the brakes... and soon found a flare-nut that the new spanner didn't work on. Subsequent investigation showed that it was a 10mm nut. Bugger! So I went round and checked the others, and it seems I have multiple 11mm, a few 10mm and one 9mm (yes nine!) This on e '53 Disco.

I think that the 11mm and 10mm might be original and the 9mm is a bit of a patch repair...

Luckily I can cut out the b'stard sized ones since I am replacing those pipes with n-i-i-ice Cunifer ones... But if you work on old cars then maybe you should get a set because I can tell you that the 11mm spanner will not even look at a 10mm nut :D
