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.

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.
