Brake Return Springs

The brake return (coil) springs being supplied in kits appear to become coil - bound before the brake linings are sufficiently worn to need changing, i.e. well before wear reaches the rivets. If you are experiencing ineffective braking on well - worn brakes this might be a cause. I know that ST Aviation are aware of the issue and I'll copy - in Jabiru in Australia to check on the possibility that the brakes are designed like this to avoid allowing the linings to wear too much. Please note that the springs will only bind on WELL WORN brakes.
