Hi all, my name is Tom Siddall and i am new to the group but not to LT's
I have a 1983 lt 31 lwb high roof petrol with a 1995 acl high torque turbo engine fitted.
as with all these vans they are a project under way......
among other things i want to fit the diesel brake servo from the donor truck, the petrol dl engine servo is about half as thick as the high torque diesel version.
The brakes are a little lacking when stopping from speed, i guess that the diesel vacuum pump needs a larger servo unit to achieve the same brake efficiency.
My question is do i need to replace the brake master cylinder for a diesel version or are they the same across the vans ?
Also does the servo fit to the original mounting or does it require the diesel fittings.
I hope someone can help, and i look forward to coming on some runs and camping trips this year.
Many thanks Tom
