    Default brake Identification... ?

    I am trying to identify the double toe brake system on this thing. I sent pics of it to Peter Morrison who has the Williams STC and he thinks it isn't one of his kits from the past. It has pedals that are model A-1260 which the LPC drawing 1051 says is a Gurdes brand--- (it says Gurdes brake pedal A-1260 ). It also has installed a pair of
    Gurdes master cylinders on the pilots side with the integrated reservoir. (Gerges model A-049-4 which crosses to a Cleveland 10-35 and a grove 676---- Gerdes later bought by Cleveland....)

    The co-pilots side are the skinny ones but don't know model # yet. Down on the axles it has Cleveland wheels. Have not had those apart to see a caliper model #.

    LPC drawing # 1051 shows all 4 cylinders skinny - so it must have firewall mounted reservoir.

    When I look at the Williams drawing # WAC5000 …… the master looks like the same
    reservoir/master cylinder -- but the pedals are Cessna PN pedals.

    This would seem to look like neither a LPC or a Williams double toe brake installation.
    I am assuming you couldn't just change the pedals from Cessna to the A-1260 because I would expect the lClick image for larger version.

ID:	2836inkage holes in the pedals would be in a different place between them (is that right ? they wouldn't be interchangeable would they ?) --- the idea that someone could have just switched pedals for some reason...… maybe didn't like the Cessna ones....

    Trying to determine if these were bought as part of an STC kit for if they were
    cobbled together from parts.....

    PS--- when I compare the linkages - pivots and springs and all that with the LPC drawing--- it all looks the same
    - even the hole in the firewall for the coil spring looks correct. Everything looks the same except the master cyls having
    integrated reservoirs instead of a separate firewall mounted tank.
