Re: brake linings

Thank you gents for the info and advice.
Car is on stands under axles and I will find out what linings are on the back. Looks like the best choice is soft molded linings.
Thanks again,

Re: Carb expert needed

If your carb doesn't have the replaceable brass seat, how can you know the condition of the cast iron seat?
Is there a tool that can re-surface that seat?
I'd sure like to know.
Thanks,
