    The master cylinder will be Sierra (two versions / different flange hole centres/ look for ID numbers on the casting) or BMC so sourced in UK. If there is no servo vacuum leak (check this by listening with a rubber pipe in the footwell next to the servo) then I doubt if the servo is faulty. Check carefully the clearance between the servo plunger shown in post 3&4 above. Aim for no more than .020” (0.5mm in new money) and check the small locknut is tight. Excessive clearance here will give a much larger pedal travel. Peter.

    Hi All, Pleased to say the car passed it's MOT . After adjustments to the servo I bleed the brake system so new fluid all round. Brakes better than they have ever been. The handbrake issue came about after I moved the guide tubes to stop the prop catching under hard acceleration .Handbrake now functioning correctly and the prop doesn't catch anymore so a result. All help appreciated. Cheers Keith
