Break problems

PostPost by: micky p » Sun Apr 27, 2014 7:32 am

I have just bought a 69 Elan SE love the car , but the breaks seam to have no feel when pressed then all the power come in , they do work well and pull up straight ,
The car has had a total rebuild by Listers at Trowbridge so i think its right but i have here'd that the two types of servo you can use may be the problem , any ideas
Also has any one heard of Listers and are there car done well it does look nice

It does sound like a servo problem.

I regret I have never hear of Listers at Trowbridge and they do not seem to have any presence on the Internet.

i think i have heard of listers and if you have a brake problem with the servo remember that the Elan and the +2 do not use the same servo ratio :mrgreen:
