I have the manual for my WAP disc brakes filed away somewhere. I'll try and look it out tonight. Late Feb is usually when my brakes have a date with a big hammer to get the auto reverse mechanism freed up again. As long as you keep this bit freed up (hard to get grease in) the rest has worked much better than drums IMO. The auto reverse bit is very strong and can take a lot of punishment.

Sorry not to have answered you guys, been away for a while. That all looks like good info so thanks everyone for contributing.

I will be getting on with mine this weekend now I'm back so great timing.

I'll no doubt be back again soon with more questions once I get into them and see what's working (or not)

Richard
did you ever find your manual for these ?

after stripping these down today sand blasting them and finaly freeing them up i would like to under stand how the anti reverse works,
i noticed that the internal rod/push bar has a toggle piece on the end and they are handed, but for the life of me i can not see how this dis engages when reversing
i can understand it can only move one way when fitted but the pads in front of it so well confused lol

The reversing disc drags the pad backwards inside the caliper and the toggle allows the pad to go swing back 10 mm and away from the disc. There is more room in the caliper in the reverse direction to allow the inner pad to move like this. When going forward the pad is constrained from moving as far in the forward direction by the caliper so that the toggle is closer to the straight out position. The spring on the disc pulls the pads back in the forward position.

Looking at the manual now but there isn't a good picture of this bit.

Its this toggle bar that is usually siezed on mine at the start of the year. 100 or so hits with a hammer back and forth cures it. Seems OK this year.

I have always been a Copperslip fan, but I was given a tin of this as a sample to try. Excellent stuff, doesn't seem to wash away & stays put from one year to next. Some situations can still only be resolved by the judicious application of kinetic energy though
