Re: Front Brake Drag MK2 Cortina
Came across this whilst trying to find info on master cyls.
" Am I right in saying that some cars (take for example mk2 cortinas or mk2 escorts) with servos use a different master cylinder size to those without servos and actually the braking is not quite as good as a result? "
" The Mk2 GT/1600E brakes without servo used a 0.7" master and 7/8" rear cylinders (and P16s at the front).
The Mk2 1600E/Lotus with the servo used the 0.75" master and 0.7" rear cylinders.
The large master with servo will reduce pedal travel but will also reduce pedal feel.
Aside from the servo, a smaller diameter master will give longer pedal travel and better feel, whereas a larger diameter master will give shorter pedal travel but less feel."
Whether this applies to your car or not I cant confirm as sometimes different equipment fitted for different countries .
