This essay on Rover SD1 Braking System was inspired by two short articles prepared for “ROVER” magazine by Robbie Bath, erstwhile Technical Coordinator of the Rover SD1 Club.
Fully researched and expanded it is now the fullest possible discussion of the complete Rover SD1 Braking System based on the following simple description.
