1922 Cadillac Brake Lining

Recommended Posts

Hello! I need to have the foot brake bands relined on my 1922 Cadillac. I can't find anything in the shop manual about how thick a lining it should have. Do you usually specify that when you send your bands in to be relined?

According to the data book 3/16" x 2-1/2"

Same size as my '24.

Let me know if you need a god shop.


That's very helpful! Thank you so much. What data book are you referencing? Sounds like it has some useful information and I should try to get a copy!

Could you tell us a little more about the Auto Data Book: author, publisher, date of publication? It looks like some folks would like to try to find a copy. Me for example. Thanks.

Hello Mike,

Sorry for the late reply. I'm afraid I don't have the publisher, etc. because the front of my book  and the cover is missing. I have only seen a couple of others.

It has serial number info. and some mechanical data. It is handbook size.

I did check my Dykes manual and it has almost the same info. in the spec. section. The Dykes should prove much easier to find.

They are always on E-bay and such.
