MOT time again! But  'Service brake efficiency is below requirements' -two or three clicks on the rachet, holds on a slope, actuator arms at correct angle, discs + pads reasonable. Are uniform rules applied to all vehicles regardless of age/design? A charming new test man but not familiar with older cars? Any MOT people here? Have ordered 4 new tyres+tubes for fitting to spare rims. 145+VAT

Sounds like the tester is inexperienced with older cars or just being a jobs worth. Whilst uniform rules are just that and are applied to all cars, in my experience considerable latitude is given by test people I have used allowing for the fact these are older vehicles. Your hand brake sounds fine! - if you want the number of a friendlier test station, PM me Richard.

MY 1600HF IN HEARTBEAT GARAGE


« Reply #243 on: 12 September, 2013, 10:35:40 AM »

Hi, I haven't tested for about 10 years now but, the first thing they would need is the weight of the car to work out the braking measurements. From memory it used to be 25% of the weight of the car on the handbrake test. so if they don't know the weight of the car how do they know what the readings should be Huh?. I can safely say that the Flaminia will not be on there brake weight chart. Good luck

Thank you Roger, I have to go back anyhow, as the main beam stopped working, there is a front brake hose 'excessively chafed', which I will look for later (3 new hoses) on the shelf, steering lock stop 'incorrectly adjusted'. Measurements -RBT Service Brake Efficiency: 33% PBT Park Brake Efficiency: N/A

I have now asked how the weight of the car was established for the purpose of the brake test. A guess. Anyhow four stripped rims ready for blast cleaning, and paint mixed for when they return

One more little job to do now. Main beam has stopped working. Any ideas before I start? No main beam and no blue lamp on dash. All other lamps working. Relay?

You should hear the relay "click" when you select main beam.  So, if it's "clicking" the fault is after the relay, if it's not "clicking" then it's the relay, the stalk switch or the fuse - possibly (I hate car electrics)!

As things turned out the dashboard 'pull switch' was not supplying the relay contacts with power so although switching, no 12v to going onwards to the lamps. Brass contacts in switch now cleaned and passing current.

I called in to see Richard on tuesday and get a good windscreen for "Fay", along with a spare drive shaft joint and a water pump, so while there I had my first look at his Flaminia PF, what an impressive car, and coming along well, there's still a lot for him to do to make it concours, but I like it as it is!
I also took him his trophy that was awarded at the AGM that I collected on his behalf.

The windscreen wiper mechanism had a bush missing, resulting in sloppy operation due to excessive play. I have made, inserted and silver soldered into position using  a recycled brass nut, suitably drilled. Next job is to clean up a pair of front suspension assemblies.
