My first 1923 T Bucket brake job

December 26, 2013
The pads are great and super easy to swap out. We took off the calipers and eye balled the pads, flipped open our Speedway Motors Catalog and there they were. After a quick phone call to customer service to verify the type of caliper rebuild kits we needed, the parts were quickly coming our way. My father, using his expertise, swapped out the old O-rings with the new, we then slid in the new Airheart Brake pads and we were in business after some quick bleeding, we were back in the parade's. The brakes work perfect. I cant convey how easy these pads were to replace. I'd rate the difficulty a 2 out of 10 for an experienced brake mechanic.
Pros:
  • Easy Installation
  • low wear
Cons:
  • None
Yes, I recommend this product.
