With regard to the front brakes the arms are straight long Girling type which are operated vertically from the front unlike any I've seen before.

I have just recently purchased theĀ 7 and am trying to come to grips with the new fangled brakes it has.

Any suggestions for improvement would be gratefully accepted.

One of my cars uses Bowdenex with these levers. I have photos which show the same arrangement in 1938. The car stops very well. Sorry, no idea about the rear levers.

Stuart

Thanks Stuart
Does your cable pull vertically like mine?
Cheers
