What Brake Pads To Try ?


Recommended Posts

I picked up Ford KA mater cylinder to try out, but in the end opted for a complete separate pedal box assembly with new master cylinders from compbrake


It was one of these units.



Pedal ratio is 5:1,

cylinder size

0.625 Front

0.7 Rear

0.7 clutch


Had to adjust things to get it to fit of course



David, any reasoning for the 5.1 ratio pedal box (size restriction maybe)?

It seems that non servo assisted brakes are ideally suited to 6.1 or above.

Really pleased I read this thread, I ditched my servo after rebuilding my car and changed to a Fiesta mk1 non servo master cylinder. Got my MOT on Monday morning first thing and my brake pedal feels like it has a long throw, I thought I'd done something to cause this but feel a bit better now I just need to stamp a bit harder!
