Hello, I am working on a 10A that has Hayes brakes. So far on the left side one brake shoe and one spring clip are broken. Are there replacement brake shoes and clips available?
Also if not is there a STC available for this model of Stinson to replace the brake system?

Dblystone,

I cursed those Hayes brakes the whole time we owned our 10A, back in the 60's/early 70's. The old expander tubes lost their resilience and the brakes constantly dragged. I can almost guarantee that most if not all the 10A's that are flying today have Cleveland brakes. I don't know about any STC's, though. I would think considering the safety aspect of having reliable brakes that you could find a FSDO that would approve a 337.

I have searched FAA's STC listing and found one STC for some models of 10 Stinson under STC SA2691 SO.
This may give you some place to start looking.

Sorry that took so long, here is a binder of some of what I have. It should cover letters about Cleveland Brakes, and a sample 337 (4 revisions I think)

My model 10 has Firestone wheels and brakes. One of the brakes had a cracked piston and you can't buy one anymore. Local guy made a new one. The master cylinders used cups seals and you can't buy those anymore either so I made new pistons that use O rings instead.

Hello Again looking for some additional info.  Same baby Stinson now I'm

looking for those several parts of the master cylinder.  Working on the

master cylinder missing one of the outside metal section and rubber

plunger part.  Any idea where I can get those several parts.  (Forward side of the

master cylinder.)  Thanks
