A Maserati Bora owner which has LHM brakes called LHM Vulcan Blood.

The system sprung a leak and filled up the foot well in Vulcan blood. Wreaked the carpets.

He said that the brakes are very powerful. He gets 35 pumps before warning lamp and buzzer go off. The headlamps go up and down 15 times before pressure is lost.

Very much the same as a Royce owners in the thinking about how to check the system.

He has seen Boras where there is no reserve what so ever and very dangerous. All the car needs is a new sphere. Evidently BX ones fit and its a 5 min job. I am glad my spheres are OK. Its such a PITA on Royces. Should have designed like Maserati easy to get at.

The system was chosen by Maserati because the boss said a sports car should be light at the controls not like a Lambo tractor. The brakes are pure CitroŽn. But Maserati added things like pop up headlights to the system which they made but not quite as well as CitroŽn would have. Its these bits that give trouble. The rest of the system is bullet proof which belies owners into thinking that because the brakes work they can forget about the sphere. Sounds very familiar. Running costs are about the same as a Royce, a lot.

Hopefully I will get a ride in a Maserati Bora.
