Rear brake lining model W 2 3/4 hp
« on: 24 Jan 2016 at 07:59 »
Van anyone suggest where I can find something like this ?    VMCC supplies a block for shaping, but the material is much harder.
Any suggestions very much appreciated

  have you tried truck brake and clutch shops...might be able to bond a couple of bits of friction material and  then shape it with a handgrinder
most of the new stuff requires a lot more pressure to work...
