Trailer Brakes

I have seen a company which supplies Stainless Steel Pistons for Range Rover/Land Rover Disc calipers, in one of the L/Rover magazines, I'll see if I can find it again.

Just a bit of an update.

Stripped the hubs/brakes down today and was pleasently surprised at how little corrosion was inside the drums. It would appear my shoes have a high metal content, and had stuck to the drums.
On the other hand both sets of bearings are shot.

Does anybody know anything about Double row angular contact bearings?, a friend has suggested they are replacing Taper rollers in industry and are available in a sealed format which would help a lot.

that sounds like those sealed bearing which I have just spent a fortune getting rid off and replaced with ordinary ones I can strip down. Do you have the indespension bearing savers fitted ? they won't solve the brake problem but might keep the bearings going but only if the back seal and stub axle surface is in good condition otherwise the grease leaks out to quickly.

Hi Pete

Those are the bearings, I've gone off the idea after doing some research today.

The bearing savers are fitted to the outside plus the seals are fitted at the back running on brand new surfaces.

Stu,
I snapped a couple of pics of your hydraulic hitch & master cylinder setup. For the sake of giving some ideas to others looking for ways to rig it, would you mind me posting them?
Cheers
M

You've

Nicked my fluid again! I towed Jaspers car back from Cardiff Cardiff (so good they named it twice!) and I didn't really feel any extra load when braking so the system works well!
