    Hi I would not bother putting single circuit on now unless you are going in for concours, original single master cyl can be exspensive now, dual gives greater safety in event of a failure , an you dont need to make as much % on the handbrake for MOT

    Likewise, always go dual circuit if I am messing with brakes .I've had 2 seperate brake failures on cars , both on single lines, one at too fast a speed and the other at around 20mph, not a good feeling in either case!

    Yep I had a single fail once at enough speed to teach me a lesson. Duals only these days.
    I did have a single on a car I bought a few years ago and did not get around to changing it. Found myself constantly paranoid about the brakes.

    cheers guys, best practice says dual but how able is a dual to stop just on the rear curcuit at perhaps 20-25% efficiency ?.

    Same as stopping on the handbrake but I've seen handbrake linkages fall apart when used in motion on certain cars. I've stopped my 55 on the rears alone when we were testing something, it wasn't too bad.

    Go duel every time. Though I have been meaning to change the single circuit system on my old Land Rover for a duel with servo for years and haven't got round to it. Think I'll have to pull my finger out and do it soon, now it's in my mind again.
    the difficult takes time, the impossible takes a little longer
