Pacemaker brake lining

Hello all, 

My Pacemaker has been out and about a fair bit over the last few weeks in this glorious weather the UK is having at the moment. It’s attracted a lot of interest - so many people saying “I’ve never seen one of those before” which makes it all worthwhile. 

Anyway as as a result, almost the only part of the tractor I’ve not touched to date now needs some repair - see attached. 

Anyone got any hints or tips as to a suitable replacement liner material for the brake strap? 

Cheers 4now, Jon.

Jon,

An easy job for a brake re-liner to do.  A garage ought to be able to give you a contact.  I've had several done in the past.  More or less every MH tractor I've bought has needed attention to the brakes.

Hello John, 
I rather like doing things myself and I’m keen to find a suitable material so I can repair this. 
Do you know what material your previous repairs have used? 
Thanks, Jon.

Jon,

I would say that it is just standard old fashioned barke lining that is riveted on.  You might find that some older garages still have some in their back rooms.  Just ask around, and they may have some rivets (copper I think)  to go with it.  Not a difficult job at all just that I have wlays sent them away.  Modern reliners bond them on and don't use rivets - equally as good

John
