Fitting Knott autoreverse brake shoes

Guys

after some advice....... The knott leaflet in the box with my new brake shoes is the opposite than those in the box last year!

Current instructions show that the autoreverse shoe is on the forward side of the hub, for both side (knott leaftet number KF089C). Whereas the last leaflet last year (KF088D) says the opposite ie that the autoreverse shoe is on the back side of the hub, for both hubs.

Has anyone got experience of fitting these shoes? which is right?

Thanks in advance
Mark

Sounds like you may be having the mae trouble as us - I think they do a left and right handed set.

Be worth seeing if you have the right ones.

The auto-reverse kit I recently fitted was on the back.

From memory the reverse shoe is fitted to the rear. When in reverse the brake is applied but the shoe is able to slide within its carrier and it releases the pressure on the drum to some extent to allow reversing.

You can just about see the axle mounting bracket on the 1st pic, which confirms this is the left hand side.

avonride brake shoes

Thanks Guys,

all done. I eventually got a diagram from Western Towing in Exeter (very helpfull) and yes they should be fitted to the leading side. So the Avonride fitting instructions are wrong.

If i had looked more carefully I would also have spotted the directional arrows on the autoreverse shoes!

I tried to contact Avonride, left messages and emails but no one bothered to get back to me which is pretty disappointing.

Cheers
Mark

Ok, thanks for that but for completeness, that makes the auto shoe a trailing shoe when going forward. Although, in your case, it is mounted forward of the axle.
