STOP­PING POWER

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Lack of use can lead to stick­ing brake calipers, but the disc brakes should feel strong if main­tained prop­erly. Well main­tained steer­ing and sus­pen­sion are rarely trou­ble­some; check for ex­ces­sive slack in the former, which points to a steer­ing box in need of an over­haul, while per­ished pipework can al­low air to en­ter the pow­er­steer­ing hy­draulics. Watch out for per­ished sus­pen­sion bushes and tired dampers. Rusty mount­ings are bad news, be­cause things are al­most cer­tainly worse else­where if it’s reached this stage.
