Thats it been in for the MOT, got a little work done to pass. Rear brakes needed adjustment and a spot of welding was all it needed. The oil is seepage from the head gasket and a coroded sump which is in need of patching. The smoke when braking was most likely caused by the oil being thrown about a bit and splashing in to the hot exhaust.

Just incase anyone else ever needs to know
