    Nice car

    I doubt its possible to convert within the drums, what about converting outside the drums, fabricate a hydraulic brake pedal/master cylinder, then fabricate a slave cylinder that pulls (or pushes) on the brake rod to operate the existing brake set up but at a higher pressure/ratio

    I have seen this set up used on small (up to 3500KG trailers not HGV) trailers particularly where they were of the swivelling drawer bar arrangement (two wheel at the very back and two wheels mounted on an A frame that swivels) the ones I used to be involved with were large exhibition units

    Good Luck with the car

    Ahh, I wondered what had become of that. Their conversion sounds the most sensible solution if the business is still going.

    Probably not relevant, but I remember they used to convert old Austin 7s to hydraulics by using Morris 1000 wheel cylinders.

    Are the mechanical brakes beyond it? My Riley runs a Girling hydro/mechanical system with rods on the back and that's quite an effective system. The trick is taking out as much lost movement out of the system as poss, by putting oversize clevis' in etc.

    If you go on to the Altair site then on the left hand side click on Bowen then that kit comes up. if you look they have converted the back plate to take the sliding rear wheel cylinder, think the same could be done for the Ford Pop.

    I seem to remember using Mk2 Escort rear cylinders before... Bit of fettling and I think I had to modify the shoes a little bit, but it worked!
    More than it shoud be, but not as much as it could be
