See my 'pm' to you.

You obviously know more about the 2 off 1972 bikes than I do, be interesting to add to my information.

Regards to all.

Each cylinder has two fixings. Each shoe then, at about mid-point, has an 'anti-knock back' arrangement with a nut on the outside of the brake plate and that might be giving the impression of more pivot points etc.

I've removed the pictures I took of the inside of a M&T converted brake plate assembly from my iPad but will try and add images to this thread when I get home later in the week.


It looks like 2 trailing shoes! No it doesn't. Snail cams are at the moving end of the cylinders.
