Front Drum Brake Adjustment
Posted 11 July 2019 - 07:37 AM
Would it be recommended to upgrade to a front disc setup or are the drums on the front good enough. I think by the time i rebuild the front drums if I pay double that I could go for disc's. I'm not looking to make more power it's just going to be a weekend cruizer and maybe become a daily driver eventually.

If you have the bucks then discs are the way to go, drums up front require regular adjustment and maintenance on the cylinders. And as a daily driver definitely discs required.

I have drums on my Pickup, all brand new, including the drums themselves, and I confess they are pretty rubbish but I want to keep it original. I can put up with them for now, and no its not a daily driver and has the heady 35 BHP std 998 A+ lump (its one of the last pickups).. as I get older I may relent and whack the S disc setup on it because it has to keep 10" wheels

Also it's a 75 clubman and just has a normal master cylinder which goes down to a small 3 way valve (attached picture) . Not sure what that is called but is this sufficient enough to power disc's or will the whole system need upgrading?
