Dual circuit master cylinders and servos

Post by jon parker » Fri Mar 30, 2018 11:06 am

Hope no one minds me starting a fresh thread I don't think there is anything current.

My 1964 bus has always pulled to the left when braking, many piecemeal attempts have failed to find the cause (replacing slaves mostly). I have decided to replace the master cylinder and all the pipes, not a bad thing to do anyway. I am inclined to go dual circuit, but read that this might make fitting a servo at a later date more complicated. Anyone got any thoughts on this ?

Would it be better to stick with a standard (single circuit) to make life easier when adding the servo, perhaps I'll put in dual circuit and press harder !

The single circuit is not a power consideration, it's a risk of brake loss.

Dual circuit just gives you that chance of stopping if one circuit empties.
