I fitted Owen Burton ford based disks in the 1990's. Vast improvement. I used my Traveller every day for work and I still have not needed new pads. Neither do I have a servo. My view is that servos do little to help on a minor and I can do without the added complexity. I feel a lot safer with the di...
Tricky one. You could (might) get away with just changing the boot, but the master cylinder will have to come out to change it I think. As you have done the wheel cylinders and the master is an unknown quality I would err on the side of caution and renew that as well. Taking it out is quite a strugg...

It does look like blue coolant dripping down. You say your not loosing any, but over a long period a little weeping may not be noticed by looking in the radiator. Or it could be remnants of a gasket sealant. If the engine is running OK then I would not be worried.

Hi. I replaced mine a long time ago. Start at the back for the rear pieces. Note how they are attached to the roof struts. Once that is off undo the wire that runs from the front parcel shelf through the window pillar. Tie a long length of strong string to the end to help you pull it back when you r...

I used to test how well my Traveller was tuned by driving down the Bradford on Avon hill. If it Parped loudly all the way down to the town bridge the engine was in fine fettle, but if there was no Parp I knew it was time for a service. I am curious to know what part of the service it was that resto...
To be honest, John, it was so long ago I can't remember. It is something I have wondered about myself, but knowing how lazy I am I would not have removed the black paint (assuming it had any) and just painted it with the paint I had at hand. Red oxide is good for an undercoat. I get mine from Wilko....
Hi John. I had my chassis legs replaced in the 1980s. To stop them rusting again I painted all that I could reach with a hard Paint such as Hammerite. Then I sprayed/painted everything with Waxoil. In the thirty or more years since I did this they remain as good as day one. I also use silicone brake...
A similar thing happened to me about ten years ago. It was winter and I was just a few miles from home when I was held up in a queue of traffic. A huge plume of steam bellowed out from under the bonnet. " Oh dear " I thought. " Looks like I will have to do some work tomorrow ." I got home and checke...
