Pics of adjustable Matco Brakes on a CTSW

If you remove the old Italian brakes and add Matco's to a CTLS here is the orientation on the leg gear. You will need to trim 1/8" off the bottom of the gear and cut off the 1/2" 45 degree angle next to the caliper. Then it is just a bolt on setup.

Darren, I also found the original brakes to be poor, pumping the lever, brake fade, especially for our short fields over here but I was concerned about the weight increase when fitting the complete Matco system, it's very easy to exceed the 267 kgs limit. I fitted the Matco Master brake cylinder only and left the wheel cylinders as original. The difference was amazing and good enough for me to operate out 250 yards regularly, no pumping the hand lever and more than enough to start skidding if too eager with the brake lever. The complete system must be fantastic when fitted to these planes but for now the master cylinder conversion ticks all my boxes.
