More progress......

The gearbox is back in the '53, as we made some changes at the back we thought we should check everything fits Ok before installing the brakes....

    There is air going in but where does it come out of the brake set up? Nice engineering...I whould drill the drums on the outside to let the air out.

  2. Hi Peter,
    The air passes out of the backing plate on the opposite side, just like the original 60mm GT brakes, we have originals to study.
    Some of the originals have the alu fins drilled with holes too, to aid cooling further.
    We would have done this too, but the clock is ticking for the PMGR and so much still to do on the '53.
    I will mail you foto of original......
