“‘ THOSE TESTS!
You appear to he cOnnoisseurs of ten-year teat stories, so I feel the following may be Of interest to you.
I own a 1938 Ford 8 h.p., which was ten-year tested in Edmonton last November, and condemned for brake inefficiency; new clevis pins were fitted throughout, the brakes re-assembled, and a certificate duly issued.
One week later braking effect was negligible. A visit to my local garage revealed that the Edmonton garage. had reversed the normal assembly of the front actuating rods, with the result that One front brake was actually being pushed off by operation Of the brake pedal; the leverage exerted upon the other front brake was so reduced as to render it ineffective.
On the whole, I preferred the car in its original condition; at least it was safely dangerous then.
