Although my Daf33 is hapilly back on the road again, new 'thingies' that need answers are arising.
First, if I brake, the car takes a strong twist to either the right or the left. It does brake allright, but it is that twist that worries me, I really have to steer against the direction it want to go in. Strangely enough, at times it twists to the right and at other to the left. Might it be air in the system? Has anybody experienced a similar problem?
Related to that, can I get sealing sets for the brakes here in the UK?
I also need a bearing for my right back wheel. Any ideas where I can get this?
The shoes are fine on all sides, but perhaps there is a small leak in the break cylinder inside the wheel. Not sure yet as it began to rain heavly when I was trying to find out. What flexi hose by the way?
Is there a possibility to get spare parts for a 33 here in the UK? I need sealing sets for the brakes and urgently a bearing for the back wheel.
