[Healeys] Brake shoe material

I measured the lining material of the front and rear shoes with my calipers. The front shoes as you said are .187 or very close to that. The rear shoes though measure out to be .234.  Both sets came from Moss as correct for the BN2. The front set was made in Taiwan and go by the name of Powertune.  The rear set are Moss' Classic Gold made in China. The part numbers match the Moss catalog for shoes that fit the front and rear.  Anyone else notice this difference?

Hi Michael,
Not sure if this will help but...
We used to have shoes relined in years gone by and always specified 0.187" thickness for the lining material. 
That measurement originated from a set of NOS rears that we had come across. 
We successfully installed many many sets, both front and rear and sold lots more. 
To the best of my knowledge we never had any complaints about shoes relined to that thickness.

I just received an order from Moss which included front and rear brake shoes because they were on sale and I actually needed them for the restoration.  What puzzles me is the fact the front shoe lining is thinner than the rear shoe lining.  It is actually half as thick!  Am I missing something here?

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
