SWB 10 inch brakes snail cam kit fitting?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone fitted the replacement snail cam set from EAC? RTC3176?

To standard SWB rear brake back plates?

I've the Britpart instructions and I don't trust them.

When I disassembled the Spring was on the outside of the backplate, but the instructions say - inside of backplate.

One back plate done.

I wasn't confident that I knew which way around the snail was to be fitted so I striped the front hub to check.


Went well in the end, the little screw pulled the can on to the pivot easily enough.

One more to do and done.

What’s the quality like on The aftermarket snail adjusters? They are 1/10 the price of the genuine land rover items. I don’t mind paying for the genuine Land Rover items but if the quality isn’t much greater than the aftermarket items I don’t see the point. Thoughts anyone?

I didn't know there were genuine?

These are by EAC, who have always been good. The set up is different, but the parts feel well made. I'll spray them with wax before I finish, they should last a good while.
