RE: 16" brake rebuild
Why didnt I saw this post earlier Lloyd? Last year had a huge irretation when rebuilding my SA Syncro bus that is fitted with 16" suspension and brakes. I didnt know it, thought it was a normal 14" and wanted to upgrade to 15". It wasnt a successfull brake upgrade and needed to rebond the old drum shoes and use the old drums and discs.
I still want to rebuild with new components in feature, but this is good to know where to get the stuff.
Question to Russel and Stuart, is it the 15" or 16" brakes the stronger and better brakes?

The 2.6 vented discs are much better than the factory 16 discs.
But you need 14 syncro uprights to fit the 2.6 discs.

The 2.6 brakes are the shizzle! Both my busses have it and even with a bus stuffed to the brim with our camping stuff, that thing stops better than my Doka ever did with the 14" brakes. I was once again amazed when I upgraded the Doka last year as well. Best 4k you will spend on your bus.
