A bit of time since I was on here last so late reply: The Ser III vac servo conversion is IMHO unsatisfactory: The brakes feel more wooden / dead. (I had in fact driven the car the servo came out of so it was up to scratch.)So I bit the bullet and bought a new pressure switch (reproduction) and now 1.5 years later all is still well. And of course it means ABS is still present. As the car now belongs to my daughter that is a good thing ;-)

Good info. I haven’t driven one with a vacuum servo conversion, though it seems an established conversion? David Marks pre production 40 has one done too.

The switch was (by a foggy memory) the low pressure switch, sourced from SNG Barratt. It came without the connector so I cut that from the old one and soldered the wires to the wires on the replacement.

Ok, yes that sounds normal for the aftermarket versions of these.
It’s great you are managing to maintain the original system.
