The stock set up is not bad if it's all working as it should. I remembered that they always seems good on my old car and I've just gotten my current JH on the road since I started my restoration and I would describe the brakes as completely adequate. My brake system is basically brand new; a fresh master cylinder, stainless steel brake hoses, Castrol GT LMA DOT 4 fluid, rear linings and drums that look they just came from the dealer, rotors with no wear to speak of, rebuilt calipers and the newer Lucas ceramic brake pads all contribute to that. I'm comparing this to a modern German car I drive everyday (that has astonishing braking power), so for a car that's 35 years old, the Jensen Healeys brakes are surprisingly good.
