Re: Brake problems

Adjusted the pedal drive into the master cylinder and now working as expected. Thanks for the advice as always. Nearly time for it to go to Johnny Java for the rest of it to be done l, I’ve already warned him to be gentle with me

A lower drag arm stiffened my wandering steering up, are the rear wheels towing in as well?
