Outside or parking brakes? The outside brakes I have on mine are semi-soft (or I guess could call it semi-hard) lining and seem to be ok. If I was going to replace I would go with the same material if I could find it or the woven with the brass wire running thru it.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

Suzanne- contact Moose Motors in Pengrove- they have stock of old woven lining and can reline your bands.

Thanks, Dan! Sent you a PM on an unrelated subject...

I wish I still lived in Santa Rosa - Penngrove is just a stones throw from there, now it's like 6 hours away. I'll give them a shout out... thanks again for the direction!!

(Maybe I should misspell stuff more often!)

Looks like Suzanne went to the same school that one-time forum poster, "Hurk" went to, to learn spellin.

I dun wint and fergettid about ole Hurk... He spelt like a reel edumacated man! :lol:

Ya know, my inlaws were from Texas, and before that, Virginia... my brother moved to Nor'Carolina a decade or so ago and he's never been happier... My kid sister moved with her now ex (rip) to Alabama (but also ended up back here in Califunny)... the funny thing is, the "rural" accent from where we now live here in the hills (I call it the "original 49er" accent) sounds a LOT like rural Arkansan or maybe east Texan...

Guess'n I gots my projikts set out afore me now... :mrgreen:

To paraphrase a line out of one of James Patterson's novels:

"I know those Brits talk funny, but don't ever underestimate them."

We have a place in L.A. called friction materials. They are ok, but I would like to know if a softer lining is available? For the steel brake drums, I don't think the harder lining works a well. I'm talking Rocky Mountain brakes.
