    Thank you, this is reassuring. The system felt fine with the VH44 that was in there. If it comes down to replacing the booster, I think I will vote...

    Good to know, I was decidedly asymmetrical after driving a Renault 10 for a few years.

    Graham, as per my question to Wildebeest, does this mean you think the lower boost VH44 is an acceptable option for the disc brake 404?

    Thankfully not, they were replaced a few years ago. But I'd still be worried about that kind of mechanically focused pressure.

    Wildebeest, on this, how did you find the brakes with the VH44? Still ok, or too much effort required? (Very fit young male driver in this case.)

    Umm... ok, but I feel like that wouldn't be all that good for the brake hose?

    There's an idea, I could just plug the outlet on the four-way at the front for testing.

    Thank you for this, I will follow it up. Repco also had a listing of some compatible hoses from a few of the H series Holdens that matched.

    Will do, but I reckon something else is amiss. The master feels and looks good, and it maintains its position under sustained pressure. The locking...

    Oh, yeah, silly me... I just bled the brakes on all four wheels, so fluid is definitely getting through ok.

    The limiting valve is there, sounds like I am going to have to remove it and see what is going on.
