Re: Brake fluid change.

Finally reassembled the whole car, took about 3 hours in total including remove & refitting my sidepanels, which takes forever. Main thing is, I am pleased to report that the brakes are amazing now ! Pedal is totally firm now & the heel & toe ability has returned. Well worth the effort. Worth checki...

Re: Brake fluid change.

Unfortunately. My pressure brake bleeder doesn’t have a cap to fit the Nomad reservoir, so we had to bleed it manually. We flushed about 700cc of fluid through the system. image.png Two bleed nipples on each Caliper image.png Helpful assistant required to pump the pedal. image.png image.png

Re: Brake fluid change.

My Nomad has two reservoirs & two brake master cylinders.
This is because I have the front to rear brake bias adjuster, which through a very simple lever mechanism, changes the pressure from front to rear.

Brake fluid change.

Ok, so this is not a “How to do it thread” , but I took a few pictures & can explain that it is not an easy job. The brake pedal travel has been getting longer for a while now, probably after the track days from memory. Anyway the car is 3 yrs old now & it should usually be replaced every two years,...

Re: Not going out

Went to work in mine yesterday, we have been working throughout.
Decided to carry out a brake fluid change.
Will do a separate thread in a bit.

Re: Driveshaft failure

Thanks for the replies guys. I am aware that Hammond broke the Top Gear car, but to be fair he was driving it like a complete dick & if you keep launching a car then something will have to break . As for the handbrake usage, this was blamed for the 1st failure & tbh since then I have only used it ma...

Driveshaft failure

Interested to hear your experience of this “if any”. My Nomad has now sheared two shafts, both times in exactly the same way & the same part of the shaft. Unfortunately I was in the worst place possible both times, absolutely miles from anywhere. I was not ragging the car at all, although it does ge...

Re: Hello - and a question

Hope you took a load of photos of your collection. 2 years for me since I collected & was one of the most enjoyable new cars I ever had. I & my son did quite a few hundred miles through Wales & it was fabulous, lucky with the weather also. Can’t get you a pic of the wheel right now. I always re fuel...

Re: Nomad Sump guard

I already had the front winch bumper fitted, so adding the winch was reasonably straight forward. Wiring it up to work was a little more tricky, but the guys at the factory were very helpful in sending me pics & diagrams. I should’ve specced the winch when new, but the cost was getting out of contro...
