Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

We're in Crewe, Cheshire. Do you know anyone handy up this way?

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

Thank you Jim and apologies for the slow reply. It's been a busy few days at work so I've not had chance to get on until now.

I'm hoping the weather improves a little tomorrow so that I can get it on the drive! It's a shame your so far away.

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

It looks like the pushrod does sit on the accelerator rod slightly, not sure if that is normal? It does only go around 1/2 inch into the MC.

No brake pressure

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

Thanks Jim. I think the RHD conversion was done a fair few years ago (2005 I believe), so hopefully any issues with that would have come to light years ago. I think the conversion kit is a Creative Engineering jobbie, and it does and a Creative Engineering Rack n Pinion. I can see that the pushrod m...

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

We've had a RHD conversion on a US Bus if that makes any difference? I shouldn't have mentioned that on the original post!

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

Ahh, we're screwed in (and painted over the screws) by the looks of it. Unless I'm making an embarrassing mistake and looking at the wrong access?

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

Morning, Dougie has given you some incorrect info there. When the brakes are converted to disks, the pedal feel goes very "wooden" is how it's usually described. Very little feedback through the pedal. That is completely normal. What Dougie has said is if you have stock brakes still all round. The ...

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

Cool, thank you. I'll give that a try and then update on progress. I'll mostly likely not get chance until next weekend though, back to work tomorrow. :(

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

Thank you Dougie. The more research I've done it is leading me towards the master cylinder. Is it a simple case that jacking up and pressing the pedal would indicate a MC failure, or could that still be a long list of culprits (fluid, calipers, etc..)? That was my thinking though, they've got to be ...

Hard Brake Pedal - Dreadful Braking

Hi all, I'm new to looking at/working on split screens, so apologise if I'm asking stupid questions! We went for a drive in our recently purchased 67 van and the braking is absolutely dreadful. It's terrifying in fact so much so that we don't want to take it out in traffic as I would seriously doubt...
