The problem with these brakes is that the main part of the caliper cannot be stripped down. There are three concentric shafts all moving independantly and its almost imposible to grease them properly as they don't have much of a stroke to work the grease in. So far these bits have stayed reasonably free. If they stick I'll have to drill out the welded pins to break it apart,

The auto reverser shoe, toggle arm and centre shaft have large areas of flat steel touching with very little play. They jam up very easily despite me giving the whole trailer a good wash after each dunking.

Still better than drums especially since the bearings do not need to be exposed to access the brakes - and the caliper comes off easily for some "attention" in the vice.

To the guys that have managed to get other pads to fit, did they have the right slots on the outer edge of the pad backer plate to allow the pads to slide back and forth on the retaining pins as I described earlier? My pads are OK for wear but the backer plates are getting a little rusty (not so easy to keep these copper slipped up. Also might keep a full set of spares stored in case. Did you find a replacement spring to fit?

Cheers

Richard
