    hi im pretty sure my disc brakes are binding on the front, if you spin the wheels you can hear them rubbing, and the car is pretty hard to push, when I bought the car it had previously been sat in a garage for 4 or so years, I then drove it once last year and then took it off for another year...

    Got an early tax exempt 1303 with drum brakes upfront, but could do with some extra stopping power :D. Just wondered how hard it is to change that setup for a disc brake setup that was standard on the 1303s. Is it just as simple as unbolting the struts and stub axles etc and bolting in the...

    My bus has been sat for *ahem* a while, and now the discs have acquired the general look of drum brakes!... How do I clean them up? Normally a light coating of rust will come off after using the brakes, but this is a little heavier than a light coating and the bus doesn't currently run...
