Hello from Sri Lanka
I live in Sri Lanka and recently bought a SeriesIII SWB. Apparently it had been brought down here by the UN in the 70's and has had two other owners before me. I suppose each owner had done their own modifications and quite frankly wrecked it. I just got it back from the garage after having to do a complete engine overhaul. Engine runs a lot smoother now, although there are still so many noises that I cant isolate where they're even coming from.
Two days ago my brakes failed (has been fitted with what I think is an Isuzu brake servo). As it was in the middle of the night and since we don't really have an AA to call I had to drive it on the first all the way home, turning off the engine when I needed to stop completely.
I was wondering whether anyone here has had a similar experience, and also whether I should repair the current brakes or just restore the original brake system.
