Reply To: Series 80 Brakes: Lining, Etc.


Randy,  One book I strongly recommend is ” Vintage Veteran BRAKE Repair Manual” by C. Perham.  It was published in 1980 and have found it very useful in setting up the brakes on my ’29.  It also has a good section on relining brake bands and shoes and a discussion on adjusting series 80 & 81 cars.  This book is available on Amazon (price not shown) and E-bay ($26.95).  Internet searching does show several companies offering to reline brakes for antique / historical vehicles.  I expect you could specify the friction material to these firms that you want used in this process.
