This ubiquitous brake shoe set was used on many pre-unit and unit-construction BSA and Triumph models with full-width 7″ single-leading shoe front and rear brake drums.
Genuine Girling brake shoes have a premium lining bonded to the alloy casting for light weight and superior stopping power. Measuring 167mm from end to end, they are 27mm wide.
The brake shoes are retained to the brake plate by stiff springs at each end of the shoe, and the leading and trailing shoes are defined by the placement of the friction material on each brake shoe.
The wheel must be removed to allow access to the brake plate. Once the retaining springs are removed, the brake shoes can be removed and replaced in reverse order.
