OK. Finally got to the rear brakes and tag brakes today. Good thing too. We're headed to Cloudland Canyon in two weeks and I wanted to make sure the rear brakes were in good shape before heading into the TN mountains.
The rear disc pads needed replacement so a quick trip to AutoZone solved that. But when I took the tags apart I realized that they have not been working for some time.
There is not much material left on the shoes, the magnets were rusty and the drum was rusty. I found the issue in that the wires going into the magnet had broken a long time ago.
So beyond feeling silly that I have not checked these before
--- I need to finr replacements. I saw the magnets on Andy's site but did not see a listing for shoes. Also, since I want to have the drums turned locally does anyone know if local trailer shops keep these parts (magnet and shoes) on hand? I've read on other related posts that they are 12" brakes but beyond that I have no info from the old parts so any info on brands, part numbers, etc. would be most helpful. Mine are too corroded to find any identification.
All replies are appreciated.
