MG Midget and Sprite Technical - 1500 rear brake shoes and springs
|Taken both sides off - cleaned, painted etc and now not sure exactly how to reassemble - which holes do the springs go in etc.|
Has anyone got a drawing or pic of one side which shows exact layout, please.
|Choice of four - one at a time -|
|fourth and last.|
|Thank you Nigel - my cup runneth over|
|As long as your brake fluid doesn't. :)|
|I was given a good tip --- do one side at a time !!!!|
Apparently it's customary to credit the photographer when you copy pics off the net
(#3 is mine...)
Only jesting - I mocked this up about 15 years ago and carried the pic in the toolbox as I could never remember how to refit them and it would always be in a panic over lunch in the paddock between races...
|I did actually remember three was yours and I think I remember who's three was, number one I think I remember but not too sure, two is my adaption of number one.|
It was only recently I discovered there were tools for getting those springs on, for some reason not needed on l/h/s on my midget but sorely needed on the r/h/s, no idea why but is was the last three times, instead I only had mugs of tea and swearing.
