Relining Alvis brakes

Cleaning the brake stations and refitting the shoes is the icing on the cake.

In this photograph, the position of the four shoes on the offside rear wheel can be seen. The outer pair (upper and lower) are operated by the handbrake with the inner pair working to the footbrake.

Once the brake drum and wheel hub is refitted, the individual pairs can be separately adjusted using the wingnuts which are hidden behind the wheel.
