Thread: Cleveland Wheels and brakes

  1. #1

    Default Cleveland Wheels and brakes

    We purchased the Williams STC for a Cleveland disk brake conversion on a PA22/20. He said he would need the parts below. So now we are looking for them. He said most of them came off a PA28-140.

    Wheel 40-28
    Brake 30-18
    OR
    Alternate Wheel 40-86
    Alternate Brake 30-55

    Torque Plate 75-16
    Spacer Piper part number 63484-00


    Thanks,
    Kim Malone

    RexandKim,

    Buy new, do not go with used equipment, I speak from experience. Too many times we have installed used wheels and brakes only to have to replace bearings, wheel calipers, pads, ect...Wound up having as much into a used set including the repairs as a new set.

    On that note, we use the Cleveland brake conversion kit # CLD 199-04600 from Chief Aircraft at $1015.00. I have used this kit with the Williams STC on several Tri-Pacers. I make a 1/4-inch spacer out of tube stock to fit the axel for brake disk alignment. Everything else is an easy bolt in job.

    Take care.

    Brian.

    Hey Brian,

    What torque plate part number did you use on this Cleveland brake conversion kit # CLD 199-04600 from Chief Aircraft? Where did you find one?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    Kim,

    Should have been one that came with the kit. Need to use the little bushings to bolt it onto the axle plates.

    Brian we bought the kit from Chief. You are right, the torque plate in the kit should work just fine. I sure like the looks of new brakes verses 30 year old parts off of a wreck. The kicker is that the guys selling surplus parts want as much for theirs as new ones. I think between the info in the kit and the Williams STC I should have enough data to satisfy the administrator Thanks again for the info.

    No problem Rex. One thing I forgot to mention, you may have to make a 1/4 inch or so spacer to slide onto your axle for proper wheel alingment. They are easy to make out of tubbing. Or If you need one, I may have a couple laying around in the shop.

    Brian.

    Thanks Brian for your help. If you had a couple extra that would be great. I know that I do not have any tubing that size.

    I saw a copy of the stc and did not see mention of the 40-28 wheel and 30-55 brake, can you post that info somehow? I'm sure I've missed something somewhere.

    Did you have any trouble getting hold of Morrison?

    The paperwork is at my Hangar. I will be back out there in a day or two and will double check it for you.
