rear brakes and bearings

Post by Vintage man » Mon Sep 03, 2018 7:04 am

Morning All air cooled dudes and gals,

My lining on the rear brakes shoes came off the backing steel.Going to have them rebonded and light drum skim.Also found the one wheel cylinder leaking..

Who is the best to get new wheel cylinders.Maybe kits to overhaul.
I also found that the the rear hubs have a bit of end float ,is that normal.

Regards and have an awsome week.
Raymond
