Wayne, looks looks like the fire threat is down under as well, some near you!  Pulled this pic off BBC news site.  BBC indicates Sydney is facing “catastrophic” threat on Tuesday.

Fitted new fuel feed and return line plus brake line, really difficult job to make look correct, even with a lift it’s an awful job. Trust me, I’d rather remove and refit the engine than do this again.

The brake proportioning valve unit you have there on your SL seems to be refurbished to good order.
Did you disassemble the unit? If so, did you perform that task yourself?

Yes Hans, I rebuilt it, bit of a tricky job cleaning and honing the cylinder but possible.
