OE Alko kit is 50 for the boxed set (two pairs of shoes and two sets of springs)



If you're in Fareham tomorrow I can leave them on the doorstep and you can pop the money through the letterbox, or if you can wait til later on in the day either I or one of the lads can drop them off, if you're Portsmouth / Havant way.

If you'd like them, just drop me a text - 07921 853190

All the best, Ben

i was horrified how rusty it was
a fact of life like death n taxes I think
And personally I found that the boat trailers which we did least miles with gave most trouble with bearings and brakes, never ran far enough to dry things out I suppose.

Brakes were not sticking as I have to move boat by hand when I get home about 5 miles home, I think rust inside drum rips the brake linings off, why do trailer brakes still
look like 1930s technology ? why not hydraulics disc brakes easier to flush and would think not much more cost plenty are car parts to choose from so no need to manufacture
anything has anyone made their own ?

I think more likely that the rust gets between the shoe and the lining, spreads n grows and prises the lining off.
Been there done that with a loose lining in the drum. Beggar to get off, tried for an hour or so in falling snow, couldnt get the drum off no matter what I did.
Stomped off for a brew and a mutter, came back an hour later and the drum virtually fell off in m' hand.
So if at first you dont succeed give up!, swear a lot and then come back later when you've calmed down!

I think RM do a disc braked trailer.

BTW that seems a fair price for those shoes
