New to Ford world

Hi Guys,
I have just joined and am impressed at how organised and informative this site is.Good on ya.

I have just purchased my first Ford, nothing special an ED, but I dont know much about the ins and outs of Falcons .
One question..I have just had the whole brake system ovehauled, master cylinder, pads, discs machined, all new. Now my brake pedal seems hard. Are all ED's like this ?

Re: New to Ford world

chances are it has just been bled and combined with new fluid, pads etc the pedal is at its max firmness.. Nothing to worry about unless you have a blown booster but i doubt they would do all the work and leave you in that sort of situation

Does the car stop to your satisfaction?

Thanks,
yeah it stops well ..but easing the pedal on when driving slow takes a bit of getting use to.
