  1. when i was doing my Zetec engine change i needed to remove the ARB, i did what some members on here had done and cut the ARB instead of fitting tie bars, i cut it just to the mounting and welded a big washer on the end to stop it pulling through, i have some pictures if you want to have a go. mark.
  2. hi Longboarder that's excellent, i've got them the wrong way, i'll will try the other way see how it goes. cheers mark
  3. my old setup was servo-less, i've done some research and i have probably got some air in the master cylinder, i didn't fit a bleed nipple to it just a pipe with some solider in the end, i'm just unsure if the pipes are in the right holes. mark
  4. bore size is 20.6 mm, all standard ford sierra brakes, discs front and drums on the rear, the peddle is solid, but when i brake its like they have brake fade, mark
  5. hi i have fitted a Fiat Punto master cylinder, i've bled the brakes and is no air in the system, test drove and the brakes are rubbish, do i have the pipes in the right place? Mark
