 adyv8  if you search for brake adjustment on a 36 Ford. There is tons of information to explain the procedure. I bet your car will be the same. If you have nos brakelining, that’s what I would use, much better braking.

thanks for the reply

the brakes on the early 36 are strange to say the least 

nothing like a early ford (i had a 35 v8)

one shoe should be of different type of  lining to the other 

and the adjustment is strange also

with only one shoe having a snail adjuster

as i have said lost the correct instructions that came in a previous club magazine

so if you kept mags please can you search for the brake one ....

and email it to me


the chap i am in contact with has never done lincoln brakes 

and is keen to see how the brakes should be adjusted e.t.c

when i said pre war lining

it is a type  0f prewar used on rolls royce and e.t.c.

thanks again for you help

Ady,     Any luck yet in getting together the info you need for the brake work to be done on your car?  Let me here on the "Forum" . If  not,

            I can scan what I have for early  LZ mechanical  brakes and send it to you--- Larry
