Trivia question - how much sand fits in a defender brake drum?

Recommended Posts

Answer - about twice as much as in this tray... :o


I thought that today, what with pootling down to The Alps at the end of next week with a bunch of other Shires reprobates, that maybe I should take a look at the back brakes as so far, I hadn't taken the drums off.

Drivers side was okay - I light dusting of sand and about 4mm on the shoes :i-m_so_happy:

Over to the passenger side, and this is what greeted me:




With the trailing shoe running from about 2mm to almost nothing, there followed a quick trip to purchase a new set of shoes which were fitted in short order.
