Dunlop Rear Brakes
I had a little extra time this past week to work on the car. My wife was off visiting her sister in Alaska, so I actually had quite a bit of extra time to spend in the garage.
So, I decided to tackle the job of re-assembling the Dunlop rear brakes. I had kinda dreaded doing this since there are so many parts. But I had my photos from before I took them apart and since they were already cleaned up and ready to re-assemble, my only difficulty was going to be having parts left over when I thought I was done.
Originally, these parts were supposably zinc plated. Didn't do that, so now they're zinc-painted. I used the rattle can stuff from Eastwood called Clear Zinc.
I can see from these photos, I've put one of the pins in from the wrong side. So, I've got to go back and fix that.
That, and I've got to bend the new hard brake lines and replace those rusty springs. Thankfully, those springs are available from AlfaStop. That's where I purchased all of my Dunlop parts.
