The only time you should be pulling the handbrake without being already 'on the brakes' is a handbrake turn surely?! . . . . . Naughty Boy!I've done an overhaul on my rear brakes. New wheel cylinders, shoes and fitting kit. The handbrake seems spot on again now.
I also think I figured out why the auto-adjustment never seemed to work for me. You have to have your foot on the brake when you put the handbrake on or the adjuster can't move the wheel.
Is that a thing? anyone else think that's how it works?
blowing the seal just makes it leak hydraulic fluid doesn't it? you wouldn't expect any damage elsewhere surely?i blew out the seal on the front right shock absorber on the wayback form weston s mare saturday
z is now in bits in the garage and new inserts have been installed on the front
now checking the steering rack over in case of damage

your exactly right but what caused the seal to blow i think was running over a large rock or something going down the motorwayblowing the seal just makes it leak hydraulic fluid doesn't it? you wouldn't expect any damage elsewhere surely?
At the Donnington historic we saw some of these racing and some of their modern cousinsTook the Zed to the Bicester Scramble on Sat 23rd. Longest run in the Zed for ages, about 100 mile round trip. First time there, really enjoyed it! Of course forgot to get a pic of my own motor!
