Wanted: Brooklands rear brake shoes

Post by vmcg105 » Fri May 10, 2019 10:59 pm

Hi could anyone help me, I’m trying to source brake shoes for my Brooklands.

The only set of rear Capri brake shoes I can source is Delphi LS1232 but when I got them they are at least 10mm too narrow.

I have searched every website and manufacturer and can’t see any other type listed than these 57mm ones which are too small.

Any help would be appreciated!

I think he`s saying he can supply the correct parts, guaranteed: TBH I would just get them from Martin, he knows the cars inside out?

Martin can you give me a price and the brand (genuine ford or aftermarket), brand new or reconditioned?

They will be new, aftermarket as genuine are no longer available off the shelf. I am working away this weekend so I'll get you details on Monday.

Now you have found the forum it would be great to hear some details about your Capri, how you happened to buy it, what you like and dont like about Capri ownership, any work you may have needed to do on it etc.
