My brake padel is stiff and cannot lock the wheels, when I turn on the engine the fail light is on until i move the car, as soon as i press the pedal, the light come on and then goes oyr a few seconds after when moving again, i am trying establish is its the vacuum pump or servo, i have tested for leaks in the lune, there is none, i have attached a hend held vacuum pump and getting a reading of about 6/7 both at the mechanical pump end and at the servo end, any suggestions on what reading i should get to establisj good vacuum pump? Also any other test to help ne work our whats wrong, the one thing I am sure of is there is no leak in the line, not sure if vacuum is strong enough?

Also any ideas of a replacement vacuum pump or servo with paying silly money, maybe compatible parts?
