Aircraft Spruce sells the Rapco version for reasonable price, pack of 4
pads and rivets needed. Rapco Brake Lining Kit 4 RA066-11200-4K
06-0174 $33.69
Imagine how many pads you would need if you came smoking into your
hangar like some SWA pilots race to the gate! 8>)
I use the Royco 782 brake fluid, Viton O-rings on the caliper pistons,
and change the pads anytime I don't like their looks or they are more
than 1/2 worn....since I want them top notch if I really need to stop
short of something.

Interesting thread. I have the original Cleveland brakes. Everything g ok through 600 hours but I am about to install my third set of pads.
One thing I have found very interesting involves buying pads. I always try and buy from Van’s just to keep the home fires burning plus they usually have fair prices.
Shopping for the 66-112 pads for the Cleveland’s however, Van’s has jacked their prices through the roof. More than twice what they sell other pads for and more than twice what the pads (rapco version) sell for from Spruce.

Just thought that was curious.
