Hi,

I have a brake problem on my 92 Highwing. It takes about 1-2 seconds before I get any real servo effect when I apply the brakes, a sort of a ketchup effect.

I have just changed the vaccum reservoar but still only get only 1-2 brake pumps between the hydralic pump runs( the ketchup effect was there before I changed the reservoar), I should be getting alot more than that.

Any ideas??

Do I need to bleed the system in a special way since the brake cylinder has got a special bleed valve??

Open to suggestions.

Found the problem!

It was air stuck in the rear brake circuit!, also think that an overfilled fluid compartment had something to do with it.

Strange symptom though if you are used to convensional brake systems...

:D
