My plan from the start of my rebuild of my 1961 BT7 tri-carb, has been to incorporate dual circuit brakes.
I started with a plan to keep drums on the rear, upgrade the front (BJ8 disks / Girling type 16 callipers) and support each by a servo (2:1 rear, 3:1 front) with 2 x 7/8" master cylinders pushed from a balanced bar equiped pedal box.
As time has progressed, I am re-considering the servo bit (some of the rally cars and Sebring race cars had a similar master cylinder / servo set-up, I am led to believe), but do I really need a servo? and can I make things a bit simpler by omitting these.
Thus any feedback on the following would be really helpful :
Servo v non servo on a road car?
If non-servo, any experience with choice of master cylinder size for front and rear, remembering they will be operating on separate circuits.?
Dual circuit brakes
