Re: need advice on bleeding brakes - 400GT


Body of Message

If the boosters fit the Espada, I"d like to get in line to buy them, assuming the 400 GT doesn"t need them. But a quick question first. I"ve been driving for six months without any brake servos and it teaches one to be a defensive driver that"s for sure. The servos were working perfectly but I started to backfire out of the passender side. When I disconnected the servos, the backfiring stopped immediately. You could hook them up in the garage, rev to 1500 and backfire continuously, then uphook them and the car ran perfectly. Is this a clear symptom of a bad servo or is it more likely a hose failure? I realize I should have investigated this problem right away but I once drove a 3/4 ton 4X4 for a year with a power steering hose out. You get used to it. And it"s a good excuse not to let anyone else take the car for spin! The last time I did that, she drove all through the neighborhood with the emergency brake on!
