    Pictures of the axle would help to ID the brakes as I take it that it not the original axle.

    I was told by previous owner that they were jaguar xk120 or jaguar c type brakes, but I've been looking on Google images & the said jag brakes don't look any thing like these fitted to the car,
    Will take some axle pictures later,
    Thanks,

    If you cant find out what your set up is then you could always run them over to past parts in Bury St Edmunds to be re-furbished. They do cylinders and shoes

    759 Opel on the wheel cylinder (not on the one in the picture but yesterday had the other side off,& the wheel cylinder looked newer)
    And on the wheel cylinder dust cover rubber it has PBR made in Australia P5530
    I've put all these numbers in Google search & it shows nothing specific

    Don't bin them. You'll need to hand them over. They can make pipes too
