Believe me I do want to buy a patrol. (but if i win 20 million lotto then i'm buying an F250 and working this thing like crazy) but finding one has proven difficult. I've seen one for sale but the guy is asking a ridiculous amount of money for it. i think he thinks its diamond encrusted with woven gold lining in the seats

brake booster works fine

I'll bleed them tomorrow and see what happens.

I'll keep you posted.

Hey

Thanks very much for searching around on the web for me and giving me those links

I just spoke to a mate of mine who's going to strip down the back end brakes for me tomorrow.

If I find out that it was the rear brakes all along,....


i'll be burning!

I only have a spare right calliper left. I'm going to open it up, it's held together by bolts but i'm that angry with it i'll be hacking it up with a grinder or oxy... and i'll be letting you know what i find in it...if that is the problem.
