HWH brake shoes

Postby pappleton » Sat Apr 27, 2019 12:43 pm

Hello,
This is a new one on me. I bought some relined shoes and found that there are two different widths - course I got the wrong ones. The casting numbers are different C15/97 are the wide ones and C15/28 are narrower. Anyone able to shed light on this? All my other shoes were the wide type.

From (limited) knowledge gained from my SQ4 dealings the 1" linings are from 1937 and earlier QD rear hubs, the 1-1/8" are from later QD and fixed rear hubs.

C15/28 (4100-32) 1937 (and earlier) QD rear hub, lining 6-5/8"x 1" x 3/16"
C15/97 (4385-38) 1938 onwards fixed and QD rear hub, lining 6-5/8"x 1-1/8" x 3/16"

I hope that sheds some light.
Pete

Hi Pete,
Thank you for that. I was under the (mistaken) impression that all Q.D. hubs were 8" as I had bought another set off a well known internet auction site. The casting number on these was C15-213.
BR, Paul
