DB2, DB2/4
General Characteristics

They come with a mechanical adjuster. The rear brakes also featured leading and trailing shoes with a fully floating double acting piston assembly. No brake servo was fitted. The handbrake acts on the rear drums and was equipped with a manual adjuster.

As fitted, they provide effective retardation all be it with fairly high pedal pressures. It is therefore a fairly common modification to fit a brake servo acting on the front cylinders only.

The brake system was itself simplex with one master cylinder acting on a single hydraulic brake circuit.
