A couple of observations: Your band is quite tight. The ends are almost touching, if not touching. This will be the last adjustment until you need to reline the band. I would have left the overlap of the ends a little shorter so that it could be compressed farther before they touch.

Also you should discuss the distance above the floor board when the pedal is depressed. It should be between 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch or whatever that measurement would be in Australian. I think you use metric there?

Overall, the video is very good with the above suggestions for improvement.

Thanks for that Norman... The linings you see were actually slightly too long for my bands - I have no idea why, but that's how they came - and they've always stuck out at the ends of the bands. My linings are still pretty thick, as they were only replaced about two years ago, and the car is only occasionally driven. Yes we use metric here. Thanks for the suggestions :-)

Band linings should be long enough to extend for about 1 cm (3/8") past the end of the band and still have a bulge that you press down after the end rivets are installed.

Mitch Steve's photo shows the linings in their correct position. When fitting them to the bands, the two ends are riveted first. Then the loop in his photo is worked down against the band. That way, the lining is hard against the band. If you start at one end and work your way around riveting as you go, there will be excess material at the end, and the material will not be hard against the band.

Allan from down under.

Hi Allan, thanks for that -- thinking back, I did actually do that with my bands :-)
