Brakes

I'm guessing that I'll find asbestos brake linings in the drums of my 10hp. It has been off the road for years.
I'm sure modern brake linings are of some other material but now should I put a mask on when taking my brakes apart?

That's good practice, you might also clean the drums, linings and back plates with a rag wetted with brake and clutch cleaner (available from Motor Factors).

Hope this helps

With my P2 (16 4light) I found the brake linings required some regular abrasion with emery paper or similar to remove glazing, to keep them effective, so wear a mask for that too. Dont apply compressed air either!
