Hi piston broke

I have recently overhauled the brakes on my 1954 Somerset to include new cylinders shoes pipes and hoses and master cylinder.
If memory serves me right there is no adjustment on the right and left cables from the expanders to the handbrake compensator.
The adjustment is made on the rod at the bottom of the lever which is actuated by the cable from the pistol grip handbrake.
I am in the uk Birmingham area.
Feel free to phone me, it may be clearer for me to to see what you have done because my Somerset is fitted with a 1959 Riley 1500 engine so my brakes may not be standard.
Feel free to ring. 07426887325
