Rear brakes

Post by stevey » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:46 pm

Hi everyone I am refurbishing a 1979 SE6 and am about to embark on the rear brakes. I have inherited this chassis that had been stripped and there are no rear brakes to guide me in the assembly order. I have the brooklands workshop manual but this only has exploded line drawing. Has anyone got some pictures of their rear brakes so I can ascertain spring positions etc.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry I don't have a photo but thought the one out of the Reliant manual may be better.

I'm sure I've got one in my archive somewhere, but it's a few years old, so I'll have to do a bit of digging.....

Yes they do Dave, at least I know what I need to buy to fill the empty flipping drums! I think everything is available apart from the steel spreader in the top picture, any clue where I can source two of those? Looks like my wallet is going to take some more pain!

Do you mean the brake cylinder or the hand brake mechanism (no. 16)in the workshop diagram above.

They look very similar to a Rover Sd1 actuating lever, https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-AAU6244

Most of the internal bits (only) are shared with one of the varieties of MGB so if the levers are common to anything, it's more likely to be that.

Hi stevey I keep all new parts in stock, the levers are £10 each, but I have a few used at £10 the pair.

Post would be £3, where are you located?.
