  • Steve - did you see my post today (21.1) on the front brake flexi hose fitting - are you able to comment on this. I have begged, stole and borrowed time this weekend to fix this but as usual the little details cause the most time - much appreciated, Simon

    Hey Simon,left a comment on there. I hope that helps you.
    Re Air servo piston - many thanks for advice. it seems better no that the new servo housing / diaphragm and spring are fitted.

    that's excellent to hear.Brakes feel normal now? I had sticky brakes for ages. I have the dual circuit system on US 2000TC's. Two servos just for fun. I rebuilt those and the rear calipers. Found the problem was sticky front calipers in the end. Replaced the seals and used stainless steel pistons and car feels good as gold now.

    Hi Craig, Sorry it took me a while to get back to you. You can download a spreadsheet from my google drive here:

    Hi Craig, My Pleasure. Sorry it went a bit Pete Tong with Harvey. It's pretty easy to be honest. If you find that they are out I can send you a google sheets document that'll help you calculate the new shims needed, but to be honest I'd say that's more advanced and you might want to ask your guy to do the work. It's a pain in the arse to be frank and if you mess it up you can snap the camshaft.

    Yeah anything you can send on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Im keen to solve this issue as a lot of good work was done on the car earlier this year and if I can get this power problem resolved I reckon I'll have a pretty sorted car.
