Our brakes seemed as if they were binding the other day, so off with the front brake drums. The 4 brake cylinders had been replaced when the van was overhauled 2007, but all 4 were totally seized and in the open position - no wonder I could feel binding!. 4 brand new front brake cylinders later, and we are back ready for action.
(Hercules too had all its brake cylinders seized recently, and they had to be replaced. They also were new only a few years before)
The Australian Grand Prix is due to be held 16th March, and seeing as the track is less than half a kilometer from our house, what better place to test the brakes
