Brake Installation &
Maintenance Data Guide
This company started as a car brake manufacturer after Albert H. Girling in 1925 patented a wedge actuated braking system. In 1929 he sold the patent rights to the New Hudson Company.
Girling later developed disc brakes, which were very successful on racing cars from the early 1950s to the 1970s.
Girling brakes had the quirk of using natural rubber seals, which caused difficulties for some American owners of British cars because of incompatibility with US brake fluid.
This Data Guide covers brake installation with details of the adjustment & maintenance needed.
