MGBs don’t have self-adjusting rear brakes. This means that the rear brakes on most Bs are way out of adjustment. As the shoes wear down, there gets to be an increasingly greater distance between the shoes and the drum. Keep in mind that there is very little travel in the wheel cylinder pistons as you press the brake pedal. It reaches the point where there is very little braking going on at the rear wheels at all! Then there are the brake adjusters…
These things are made of some very corrosion susceptible Alloy. They have an Alloy body and a steel adjuster screw. On most MGBs, they are seized solid. Putting a big wrench on the adjuster screw “flats” will only strip the screw or shear it right off! Playing a welding torch flame on the adjuster body while gently “rocking” the adjuster screw will sometimes free them up.
To top it off, new adjusters have always been expensive.
Original Lockheed brand adjusters are now more than FOURTY bucks each. Chances are that you’ll need two.
We just brought in some County brand adjusters at a great low price.
These things look to be every good as the Lockheed adjusters, but at a fraction of the price.
If you install new adjusters and put a good smear of anti-seize lubricant on the adjuster screw threads, chances are that you’ll never suffer from seized adjusters again. This will allow you to actually adjust the rear brakes from time to time.
If your rear brakes are adjusted up the way they should be, the increased braking power will make driving more of a pleasure.
Fits any 63 – 80 MGB or MGB GT. Two needed.
Fits all 68-80 “Tube Axle” cars.
In other words it fits everything after 1967.
