Im working on front brake on my T.
I have seen Ricks car few years ago, nice work.
Does anyone using McNerny or Todsmith. I know Gene Carrothers' homemade setup (based on period McNerney-Big Fours) very nice.
Does anyone have some photos?
Thanks for any advice
Stefan

I've built some exact copies of the McNerney brakes. Some day I will probably make them for resale, but not yet. I haven't finished testing.
Couple of things to consider;
1. A improved "non reversible" steering box is desireable with front brakes. Another option is to totally rework the front axle geometry
2. A "wishbone doubler" is essential
3. The pan socket has proven adequate
