Introducing our superb quality trailer back plate for the 203x40 brake system as used by KNOTT - This size of brake shoes is often found on Brian James or Indespension Trailers or some Wessex Trailers, There may be other types of trailer but the main thing is that if you have the 203x40 brake drum that takes KNOTT style brakes then this is the backplate for you.
If you have the older LOCKHEED brake system then you will probablt struggle to find the backplates etc so you can use these backplates, you will also then need the associated parts including brake shoes etc and then weld these backplates into place and the brakes will work but of course you are upgrading to the KNOTT system so will need to have new brake cables (KNOTT or KNOTT type) which we also sell.
If you need the 'associated parts', which serve as the perfect replacement for drums utilizing the 203x40mm Knott braking systems or can be used to replace the backplate and brake shoes on older 200x38 Lockheed or Rice Richardson braking systems then please select this option on the purchase menu.
These backplates are also particularly useful for older Rice Richardson trailers that commonly used the Lockheed braking systems with 200mm internal drums and 38mm wide shoes. As the original backplates and auto reverse shoes for these systems are now obsolete, our backplates offer a suitable replacement. When paired with the 203x40 brake shoes, springs, expanders, eyelet connectors, and adjusters, they work seamlessly. Please note that updating the brake cables to Knott type cables is necessary for compatibility. Rest assured, we have all these cables in stock and our team is ready to assist you with any queries.
The backplate features a 45mm center hole and comes complete with cable shroud covers on the rear. Designed for welding onto the appropriate area, it is supplied unassembled, allowing you to weld the backplates into place securely.
To order the complete set, including the 203x40 backplate and associated components, simply select the corresponding option from the dropdown menu. Please adjust the quantity accordingly based on the number of drums you wish to replace, and click 'add to cart'.
While we strive to keep these items in stock, they are in high demand, and replenishing the stock can take up to 2 weeks due to modifications. If we are currently out of stock when you place an order, rest assured that we will promptly contact you with an estimated delivery date.
Upgrade your braking system with our reliable backplates and associated parts, ensuring exceptional quality, durability, and compatibility. Trust us for all your needs, and feel free to reach out to our knowledgeable team for any further assistance.
