firstly Boyo ..... WTF is it ???
IF it's a fairy, they usually have a separate power steering pump, fed by a reservoir on the cab bulkhead, behind the driver's right shoulder ...
in the engine bay .. but have seen 'em in the cab too
Power steering is a bit of a euphemism on fairies; that and a lot of wishful thinking !

The brakes are AFAIK / can recall, air over hydraulics ... reservoirs are in the cab.
the handbrake is a gert lever beside your right knee....bit like a signal box lever and totally mechanical.
if it's been stood with it on, the shoes'll have rusted to the drums, or the linkages will have seized.

I assume you have had it running, so try rocking it in reverse ... not too much grief ... the gear boxes are tiny and burst for a past-time ... unless it's a 5 speed ... they are a little more robust.

As for pix ...... see the pix attached ... the right click - open in new tab gives you a preview of what you've loaded if you want to look and need to do it for each image. If you just click it will open in the same window and your post disappears .... don't panic, just press the step back button and it'll come back
the main thing is the size of the file .... try one to start with and see if it will upload ... if it doesn't.... compress the file size in a picture editing prog. and try uploading the newly created compressed version.

I did actually get the forum to upload 3 full size files the other night by accident ... ... it don't happen often, so I'd compress them ... there's a size guide in the upload window

there's other things you can do too ... master this first good luck

If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
