Anyone know of a vendor selling lining for RM brakes? I drove the coupe to work this morning and noticed right rear shoes not riveted in place and a section missing!! What the ---??? Stops as well as ever but can't leave it like that. Can't imagine what happened or how long its been that way.
McMaster Carr sells woven brake lining.
Here's an older thread on the subject: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/264053.html?1328192954
John, Roger's attachment is a good lead. As stated there by me " The R.M. company charges three to four times that of a brake re-lining company but the woven lining you get at brakes lining shops will squeal".
Thanks all--I'll check Mc Master.
Some older trucks use a woven lining on a brake drum mounted on the drive shaft much like older Chrysler products of the 30's through 40's.
Go to a truck brake specialty shop because they have the product in stock and they will bond them for you. I paid $60 including parts and labor.
