1974 Commer Van pb 1.7 from UK and Ireland
Front brakes are biased to the left, left side snatches on and locks up front wheel. have replaced the pipes, cylinder and still doing it any ideas?
Starts first time every time, roomy, comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Hi there. Are the front end bushes OK?. Are the front pads correctly regulated so they both start braking at the same time? Did you replace the RIGHT SIDE pipes, cylinders, etc.. or the left side ones? If the van pulls to the left, it is more than likely that something is wrong with the right side brakes. Or, try changing both right and left side brake springs. Perhaps the left ones are stretched and/or weak, and make the left drum brake earlier and stronger than the right side. Also check right side for possible bearing grease leakage. Good luck, please let me know what was the problem when you fix it.
