One smiling owner whom has brakes which work

Off the ramps and road tested. brakes were that bad when it arrived that i simply didn’t feel safe taking it on a test drive. Now I have to report it’s great.  The lacking brembos is noticab

I don't think it is undeserved at all from my perspective. It was obsolete when it was installed on the Esprit. You cannot get parts for it - apart from the accumulator. When they actually need repair

After doing All husband and dad like duties today - I managed to slope off to the garage for some spannering

There’s a big space under the bonnet C4E54FD5-F54D-424C-AB91-30D37DBFD02E.jpeg.e17b67d03045cc0102200016dbb76e9f.jpeg

and there’s now a heap o sh&te on the garage floor

pedal also out - I also have a v8 pedal box - the v8 pedals are different as can be seen.F045E3D4-3648-4AD5-9648-EC15C37D1270.jpeg.8aa2700c80e0c9fd9f0369385bf15716.jpeg

now on cooking bbq duty so that’s it for the moment.

my body also aches from the contortions of the Lotus position 

Hope the missus don’t ask where the washing up liquid bottles gone - that’s the easiest way I could think to empty the brake fluid out

Is that pedal from a facelift V8?

I have absolutely no idea - it’s from a Kelsey systemed car I believe

Yeah, that'll make sense.  An earlier DM V8 should be the same as your S4s.

It’s with the Kelsey conversion kit I have - all from the same car apparently.

Mines September 96, an early V8, cast iron bell-housing early. That's running Kelsey.

I cleaned out the space in the front a little last night. It’s amazing how many old fixings were spare and lying around. 

I am awaiting the new bracket now - and it’s due very soon :thumbsup:3645A69B-E514-4D11-95D1-6D9E857FDA0A.thumb.jpeg.3276947da0cd3e646c6545f763c09bb5.jpeg

They're probably just hitching the horse up to the cart right about now.

More likely to be an elephant.....

Imagine his face when he opens it up and finds a couple of these.  Great wheeze, Ian, although a little nasty, I thought.

Don’t even joke - yours will go missing overnight 👍

I won't have the pump before Thursday earliest, so it's gonna be a nail-biter...
