Re: Adding a brake servo

The only time I have ever heard of any warning of brake servo failure was on a Ford. Copious quantities of white smoke from the exhaust when brake fluid was drawn into the engine via the vacuum pipe to the inlet manifold. Whether this might happen on any brake servo failure probably depends on the d...

Re: Adding a brake servo

Hi David. I can't answer all your questions but can offer the following from my experience: My 72 BGT has the single line remote servo, always worked fine and not had any attention.

And it's still there if I hit "reply" again, even after I've posted it already?

Yes, it works. To recapture the draft I had to tap "reply" again, and there it was.

Re: Replacement Cylinder head

Peter, let me know what you think to this: Let's say that the rocker angle with the valve tip is 90 degrees when set correctly and originally. With the head off the block we can insert shims under the pedestals. Let's say this increases that angle to 100 degrees - rocker tip now pointing downwards. ...
