Re: hard brake pedal

I Have only ever had one brake failure..vauxhall viva that ones winding the clock back a bit..I had changed the engine on this one bought it cheap to knock back out..took it for a test drive to see how it went..approaching a busy roundabout on a hill started to brake and Oops no brakes..managed to filter into the flow thank god because it could have got quite nasty drove the 3 miles home on the hand brake only..
metal brake line snapped off clean as a whistle from a front calliper brake hose..narrow escape or what..easy fix .breaker parts..old one off second hand one on..
Currently in Phil48's garage:
There is nothing in my garage now..
