Brake shoes and wheel cylinders

Post by Imposter » 8th November 2016 - 2:57pm

I've been trying to find a set of brake shoes and wheel cylinders for rear pre 65 hubs. Can anyone tell me where is best to get hold of them, post 65 is easy, but I'm struggling big time.

Thank you :)

Exactly what I wanted to hear - thanks Mike. Which begs the question why do they all list them as post 63 or post 65?

The drums themselves are different, maybe they presume the internals are different too.
That's the benefit of having an owners club! :)
