Yesterday I recovered 4 units, it's mk3 cooper s, 21a2012, dated 1970.
The 2 rear units are badly reduced, I should try to clean them inside.

Lucky you! I would flush them out thoroughly until clean water runs out freely then dry them out until you need them or fill them with a silicon based fluid. I'd use silicon brake fluid as it's got all the non this that and the other properties you need to protect the rubber and the steel internal components. Plug the open hose ends with wood bungs or BSP blank-end fittings and store upright. Others might disagree of course but that's what the chemists suggest. As for the hose attachments then if they ain't broke - or leaking - why fix them? The hydraulic loadings they're subject too are nothing in the real world of industrial hydraulics. But if you do want to rep[ace it's an easy fix so long as it's not absolute authenticity you want
