Brake shoes/cylinder recommendations

Post by sierra3dr » Wed Jan 01, 2020 11:18 pm

Did the rockers the other day and did the timing belt,fresh 20w50 in and new oil filter today,and she has livened up :burnout: .Inspected the shoes and there's still some meat on the shoes,it's just the springs have aged. I've been looking on ebay. Does anyone have microfiche for the part numbers?
thanks
Paul

I believe this is the correct Mintex kit, as the springs were the same throughout production? (If anyone knows otherwise, speak now or forever hold your peace)

or a couple of quid cheaper here:
