EB: Brake equaliser shafts

Brake equaliser shafts

Brake ropes

The brake ropes are an important element of the braking system on pre-war Rolls-Royce and Derby Bentley chassis. They should not be kinked or distorted, and should be inspected routinely and regularly for broken strands. They may also have stretched over many years of use. These are all reasons for renewing a brake cable.

We regularly renew brake cables. Where they are undamaged we re-use the original fork ends, and fit these to a new length of cable. The overall length of the complete cable is important, and this is set up on a purpose-made jig in our workshops.

If your brake cables are damaged or you suspect that they have stretched please send them to us for assessment.
