Do I need a servo

Postby Luckychap » Sat Feb 08, 2020 8:25 pm

Hi folks. I am doing up my 62 saloon. I have fitted a new master cylinder and just ordered a disc brake kit. It's the Ford ka one. Can I get away without a sevo? Thanks jed

Depends on the strength of your leg muscles....

I'm getting on and prefer a servo on my ford disc set-up.

I will give it a go when I get it on the road and see how it feels. Got to be better than 7 inch drums :D

A servo will make pedal pressure a lot lighter. You can just try it without and if ok, then just leave it, but if not, add a servo at your leisure.
