Brake Shoes - Viking Fibreline


Recommended Posts

I am doing a rolling restoration of a 1979 Viking fibreline voyager 2 and I could do with replacing the brake shoes as the friction material is looking a bit thin. Does anyone know the model/pattern I need?

 

Any help received with thanks. :)

In the past I have had brake shoes relined by a a pukka centre such as these : http://www. ferodo. com/en-gb/Network/Approved-Reline-Centres/Pages/Ferodo-Approved-Brake-Reline-centers. aspx

I would venture that they are the same as all B&B trailers, and that an Aústin or similar shoe would fit. I would take them to a car spares (not Halfords!) place, and see if they can help.

Reline is easier than trying to trace old shoes and as cheap.

 

This what I always do on old trailers.

Don't wish to state the obvious but please be careful as if those are very old or original they may be asbestos.

Yes I realise that old brake linings are very likely to be asbestos - i did wet the brakes before removing the drums so as to damp any dust down.

Well, perhaps I can differ a little- they are only 15% more than the average price, and £10 less than Alko shoes. If mine needed brakes, which it doesn't, I'd be getting them. ..

I agree - I made an offer below the asking price and it was accepted. I feel that a few quid on new shoes is a small price to pay. They will last years and deliver peace of mind.

 

Anyway I have better things to do than trying to find old brake shoes for a lower price.
