Are yourBrakes Efficient ?
THERE is no doubt that many accidents could be avoided if the brakes of the cars concerned were working at anything like their utmost efficiency. There are two factors to be considered in ensuring that brakes can be depended upon in an emergency ; by using linings of guaranteed quality, and by correct adjustment. The first is easy to accomplish, for by specifying Ferodo brake linings when their brakes are relined motorists can now obtain the Fero-do 3 point Guarantee, which gives them the following advantages: (1) That their brakes have this day been fitted with Ferodo brake lining, manufactured by Ferodo Ltd., Chapel en le Frith, (2) That the correct type of Ferodo lining has been fitted, and (3) That the holder, on quoting the serial number may obtain from the Ferodo
Company any advice he may require regarding his brakes.
The second necessity is correct adjustment. For checking the accuracy with which brakes have been adjusted the Ferodo braking chart ” How Quickly Can You Pull lip ? ” will be found most useful. Varying degrees of brake efficiency are shown on a large chart, which can be obtained by MOTOR SPORT readers post free from Messrs. Ferodo, Sovereign Mills, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Derbyshire.
