Commando TLS brake shoes on ebay...

Postby Bob Z. » Tue Apr 18, 2017 6:51 am

There is a current US ebay offering for Norton brake shoes at an outstanding price.
But the vendor is not sure of the application.
Can anyone shed light on if these are indeed suitable for the TLS front drum brake.
They look like it.

From the ad:

Ferodo FSB923 Front Brake Shoes for Norton 200mmx30mm Drums
Research: We found these brake shoes listed on the Ferodo website which states these are adaptable to Norton front 200mm x 30mm drums. It also states these are equivalent to Newfren shoes part #GF.1111. The Newfren website does not provide specific applications either. Since specific models are not specificed we have measured these to help you determine if they will fit your application. If you hold the shoes together as shown in the first picture the diameter is about 8-9/16". One of the shoes is about 6-13/16" tall and about 1-1/4" wide. Please keep in mind these measurements were taken with a tape measure and may be slightly inaccurate. We suggest you compare the shoes pictured and measurements provided to your drums to help determine if these will fit your application or contact Ferodo directly for additional application assistance.

Maybe partially answering my own question, I measured my originals that badly need replacing:

Lining width is 32mm and mounted diameter is 200mm.
The worn 200mm outside lining diameter gave poor braking.
