Brake relining

Recommended Posts

I need to have the front shoes on my 40 President relined. I am looking for recommendations for who does a quality job with a good turnaround. Or if anyone has a source for just the linings I can have them riveted on locally. Thanks for any help with this.

I don't know where you live but most real brake shops can get what is needed to finish the job. Take the drums also so they can arc the shoes for a full fit..

There must be a brake and clutch shop somewhere in your area.  Most shops use bonded linings today, but if you want to stay with riveted they will do that too.

 I use Casper Brake and Clutch in Kansas City.  They do an excellent job and have the correct linings for both hydraulic and mechanical brakes.

I used the clutch doctor in MN for my brake bands - fast (turn around in one week which included shipping times back and forth from MI) and reasonably priced.  Excellent work and very nice to deal with. Went out of his way to find some softer linings to eliminate some brake squeal I was dealing with.

Dave Thibeault (T-bow) in Maynard, MA did a quick return on the shoes for my '33 Rockne. I will never hesitate to recommend him.

His ads appear in every issue of The Antique Studebaker Review.

Thanks for the recommendations I did find a place in Phoenix that can do it. About 100 miles from  me I am near Tucson, AZ .  I have bought from T-Bow in the past but did not know he did brakes. 

Thanks

Jerry
