G'day Reinhart


I have found the simplest way is to replace the lot.


The last time I needed the bumpstop boxes I bought direct from Kilmartin
Sheetmetal in Australia who supply most of the world's outlets. Kilmartins
now have an outlet in the Netherlands and their website address is:




The Kilmartin part number for early BN1s is AH 120 and for later BN1s and
subsequently it's AH 161.


As to the little felt bushes on the rear brakes the purpose of the posts are
to keep the shoes centred within the drum. You probably have realised that
they are adjustable from the back. The purpose of the felt rings or buses is
to hold a little bit of lubricant such as grease or oil so that the shoes
move easily when the brakes are applied. It's been many years but the last
time I bought these I got them from AH Spares in the UK.

When working on the rear brakes of my 100 I found the bump stop boxes on
both sides torn where the rubber buffer from the suspension may touch. I
found 806-180 as the part-number in the Moss catalogue but did not find the
original part number in my old Austin-Healey parts list. Anyone knows the
Austin-Healey number? Is the quality of these from the different suppliers
more or less the same? Or should I rather have a small piece of a panel
welded on the remaining that do not look too bad. 


Inside the brake drum there are steady posts with felt bushes. One of these
is missing. What is the purpose of these? Should I replace the missing or
all of them?


Thank you in advance,
