    Dear Forum members,
    For a restauration of a 4.5 rapide, we are looking for two rear brake cylinders. second hand, good condition if possible, as the ones in the pictures, (no new ones available).

    If anyone by chance has a set arround would be highly appreciated.

    Best regards

    Unfortunately I can’t help with parts, but it looks like you have a rod or cable operated braking system on your Rapide, in which case you will not have brake cylinders on your car. I might be wrong but the casting on the right hand side of your pictured brake backplate appears to be what is termed an “expander”, which I would think means the items you need are therefore the adjusters.

    Yes an expander is what you want.
    Try David Ayre http://www.davidayre.com Or LMB Racing in Belgium http://www.lmbracing.be – both carry second hand spares for Lagondas.

    I have just had a quick look on ebay, is this the right one?

    Similiar parts used on Rileys. Sometimes they are smaller sizes but worth while pursuing this avenue. I found the parts that I wanted (LG45) from a Riley specialist . Cant remember now exactly what parts or from whom but post again if you fail to find what you want.

    Found it after some hunting !!
    Pina try Blue Diamond Services – Telephone (UK number ) 01458251147. They should be able to help or maybe point you in the right direction.
    These are NEW items they sell for Girling rod brakes.

    Thank you for the help and pointing in the right directions, i will enquire right away.

    Best regards
