I'm on a mission to reline my own parking brake shoes.
Can someone tell me what the thickness of the lining
on a new pair of shoes is? (perhaps you have a pair
lying around ready to be installed). Thanks.
I know, it's a bit wierd, but I can get the lining itself
from McMaster Carr for about $3 and already have both
high temperature epoxy and copper rivets around
for installation. I would never do this on the main
shoes but why not on the parking brake shoes?
I have the older style parking brake and would have
to replace the adjuster, pins, etc. to use the new
Besides it's cool to try everything once, even if
it doesn't work and, $3 << $63.
Anyone who still has a landcruiser with a column shift
probably would enjoy relining his own brake shoes and
probably rebuilds wheel cylinders instead of replacing
them. I am thinking about going back to the old
cannister style oil filter and removing my seat belts.
Hmmm. What else?
Tube-type H78 snow cruisers?
One barrel carb? Siamese head F engine?
Vacuum transfer? Round turn signals on the bib?
Tool box under the front (bench) seat?
