In 1980 Beech standardized on the 030-05900 brake assembly for the
19/23/24/77 (but not the heavier Duchess). The 30-059 originally used the
66-07100 lining, which has since superseded to the 66-11200. The good news
is that your aircraft has the correct brake assemblies. More good news is
that Aircraft Spruce stocks them (listed under Skipper), AND they have them
in stock at both East and West. RAPID even has some, for a few dollars
more. The only bad news, and it isn't too terribly drastic, is that they
are twice the price per lining compared to more common sizes ($15 versus
common Clevelands at $8-$9 and Rapcos at $6.00). Want to guess why? The
only reason I know of is because Rapco doesn't make them. Cleveland can
name their price (so far), because the potential market apparently isn't
large enough to interest Rapco. Even so, $60 instead of $30 for linings
that typically last several years or longer isn't a make-or-break
proposition.

And no, it isn't just a 'Beech thing'. The Piper PA38-112 (Tomahawk) with
the six-inch wheels also used this same brake lining.

Subject: [BAC-Mail] break pad question

I have a 1980 sundowner that came with clevland breaks. All the info i have
seen say that the break pad is a 66-105. For some reason they do not fit.
what fits is a 66-112 whic is call for a Skipper. Qnyone have an idea whats
going on. could I have incorrect Break Plates? The 105 and 112 look almost
alike except for the demenison between the holes. What pad do others have?
It is really hard to find the 112's.

Any comments would help
