I own a 101 GS. I bought rear brake shoes via the club shop and on removing the old brake shoes and fitting the new ones, the pin on the new brake shoe is too short and the adjuster misses the pin for adjusting them. The shoes fail to adjust. It would appear the pin on new brake shoe is too short as the adjuster goes all the way past it.

Anyone able to advise or assist ....could the pin be replaced? Or what needs to happen? Or experienced this for themselves?

Thanks

Have you got any pictures of the problem? Or a comparison? If you are unable to resize them please email them to me at ptsteer@aol.com as this is an unusual problem. Recently fitted some rear brake shoes & they went on fine.

I had an issue with a set of rear shoes on my '75 109 - STC2797 - same as the 101.

Do check you have got them in right place - Left and Right hand shoes and Leading and Trailing positions as this is also a consideration and will affect adjuster function.

There was apparently a Technical Note floating around on this way back - not sure if anyone has a copy?

The shoes I had were "OEM" Mintex items, which were supposed to fit LWB '71 to an '85 90 according to the label. :shock:

They would not adjust and I could only just get the rear drums on :(

I tried a pair of cheaper pattern items for a 71 to '83 (Note dates!) and they went straight on with no issue!! :)

Beware what some parts manufacturer label as suitable - they are not always corrrect :roll:

As Peter suggests - pictures are worth a thousand words!
