No; Do you have rear drums, if so they probably need adjusted.

Yes i do have rear drums .i will have to check and adjust however could it be the brake master cylinder that has gone bad?

If it's bad you shouldn't be able to pump it up and it hold pressure. Should keep dropping.

Thanks again ,that eliminates the cylinder .Actually it drops off after i have pumped it a few times to get the pressure up before it starts to drop off again .However when i give a pump (1 stroke) the paddle goes straight to the floor

You're not leaking fluid, correct? Could also air in the lines, but usually when the adjustment is out the pedal has to pump up the slack before it will hold. Once the adjusters have been reset, try it again to see if the pedal drifts.

Thankyou very much ,I'll get back to you as soon as i'm done adjusting,and yes i'm not leaking fluid.

Hi I have been out of net coverage for a while ..I adjusted the rear drums and it did feel a bit ok but reverted back to the old symptoms again after a few days. should I change the master cyclinder for interest?
