Re: 10cwt van rear brake shoes

thank you everyone, all is very much appreciated. I think the most likely candidate is the TWR GS6067, which, as it's actually available, i think might be my best shot. with the suspect rear brakes possibly coming up in the next MOT, in May, we shall see if it's correct. Yes, i know mine van will be...

Re: 10cwt van rear brake shoes

Thanks Chris,?
is that part number the BL part number? or the brake shoe manufacturers number? Like GBS740? (which seems to be the most common MGB number)
cheers

Re: 10cwt van rear brake shoes

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

It's been a difficult week, marina wise. Wednesday was a lovely warm summers day, so, having the day off work allowed me to have a drive west, to take in the country lanes and maybe do some painting.
