While I would fear for my life to use the word "crap" in reference to 
the marque we worship, I do like the tone of Geoff's question. For a 
number of other auto brands, it's fairly common to upgrade or modernize 
the servo to something less troublesome. A lot of these cars have 
simpler braking systems, but it does seem like it should be possible to 
leapfrog over this whole servo issue to something better. I've got a TC 
now with two servos that haven't moved in thirty years. What a joy it 
would be to replace them with something simpler and less finicky.
