There was an earlier Rocky Mountain Brake instruction sheet posting on those that were manufactured by Sunderlin back in 1960s. I have tried my best to find it. Can anyone help?

Warren, Jack Sunderland did not understand outside brakes. That is why he change the design to the AC design. All he had to do was elongate the hole for the pivot bolt so it could move forward when the brakes were applied and he would have fixed the [problem and not have had to go to the expense of making new patterns. I have a copy of his original instructions. send me your address and I will send you a copy. Glen

I bought my Rocky Mountain Brakes from Jack in Downey about 1977. I had bought the Coupe from Duluth MN in Sept 1976 and it was in the Ramona parade in July 1978. Bruce McCalley had recommended I purchase them at the Long Beach swap meet at the Hamilton Bowl and he put me in touch with Jack. By then they were the full circle type with the pivot point at the front. They still came with the brackets that coupled the brake cross shaft to the motor. Later it seems the two brackets were eliminated.

I agree with Glen on this one. I finally managed to find an original copy of the real Rocky Mountain Brake instructions, and it was a big help when I was looking for original parts for my brakes. Jack Sunderlin could have done the same without having to resort to using the Bennett rods and equalizer, but he didn't do his homework!
