    Default brake system ID ? Anyone have these ?

    I have a 53 Pa-22/20 which I beleieve had the LPC Grar conversion kit (now univair) which I think had the gear, brake kit and tailwheel all done
    together. (also had the deep dash mod STC)

    I have compared what I on the double toe brakes and pedals. They match the LOP drawings - except the pilots side master cylinders have integrated reservoirs.
    Everything else looks exactly the same as the drawing including the measurements of the hole in the firewall for the return spring.

    Anyone lave an older conversion like this that could tell me what it is supposed to look like.
    The pilots side masters are Gurdes A-049-4 masters with integrated reservoirs. Pedals are gurdes A-1260 (which is consistent with LPC drawing)
    Tailwheel is a maule TW 100 SFS-P8A Wheels are Cleveland. (don't know number on those yet.)

    I'll look and see if I have any better pictures. All of the cylinders are the same. We have a reservoir in the engine compartment on the firewall. 20130917_121309.jpgimagejpeg952_4.jpg20140119_150120.jpg

    Not sure brand name of my brake cylinders but they look like yours.
    Rudder pedals look same. May be able to post pic tomorrow.

    Added pics I took today, looks similar to yours, not sure of brand master cylinders
    assume it came with the Univair pedal kit.

    Cool---
    Andya---- is that a univair or the earlier LPC system ?

    I get the idea that the available parts may have changed year to year as some of these supplier companies come and go out of business.
    No I see scott is gone. (tailwheels)

    I am meeting with my IA today for lunch to find out how hard the thinks this thing will be to bring back from the dead (the paperwork)
    The airframe appears to be in OK shape overall.
    Thanks

    Fairly sure mine are LPC but most of the story on my plane is murky.
    Scott tail wheel.
    BTW you mentioned Scott is out of business, you know that Alaska Airframes Inc makes and sells them now.

    thanks Marc and SM---- your DO look like mine---- I wanted some evidence that mine are LPC supplied units. My IA seemed to think that it wasn't as big a problem as I did---
    (that sounds like a good thing---)

    Thanks !
    I have her in the garage now so I can get to work on her.
