Disc Brake Pads for 1979 Excella

Needing new disc brake pads for our 1979 Excella. Thought we had found the part from a vendor in North Carolina so we ordered...not the same as the old pads. Seems to be harder to find parts for older models...any help would be greatly appreciated.

Once upon a time they were available from Inland RV in Corona, CA. You may be better off replacing the discs with either Dexter or Kodiak, but beware with the original aluminum wheels the Kodiak disc calipers are larger and the wheels need to be replaced, not sure about the diameter of the Dexter brakes and calipers.
