Front & Rear Brake Diagrams

Various Brake diagrams I used for reference.

I have been asked if there were any diagrams that I used, so here are a few of the more useful ones.

Please make sure you get the right details for your car as I can’t/won’t be held responsible for any errors on a critical part of the car.

        I’ll definitely be using your site. I have been restoring a 65 convertible, total restoration. I started in 2014, just received back from the paint shop a few weeks ago and find myself at a lost point once or twice a week. I have to rely on U Tube or whatever to jog my memory.
        I was installing the emergency brake cables and handle assembly today. I couldn’t get the lock on the handle to lock. I looked like there should be a spring that would push the small “H” like lock down in place. I found one in a bag marked steering parts. Turned out after finding and checking your site that showed a complete breakdown. That it was indeed the one I needed.
