Porterfield USA have come back saying they cant find a listing for the pads you need, do you have a drawing or part number for them?


Porterfield are recommended on GoMog. I would like to try them on my 2011 4/4.
Anyone tried them & got any suggestions on part numbers etc.
Reason to try something different is my present shoes & pads loose all braking when very very wet.

I have used Porterfields for 20 years. Send a sketch of the pad and I mailed the rear shoes and they installed the lining. Be sure to tell Porterfield that You want Road shoes/pads not Race shoes/pads. If You are UK I think there are Suppliers. Check with "MULFAB".

If they make them in house, are they blue?

Thanks Button. Yes I am in uk. That quote was from Porterfield uk.
Hopefully a picture will help them supply the correct ones.
I have heard good reports about them which you must concur after 20 years.

Great. Make sure you buy the rears as well as the front pads. I get good service from Porterfield in California.
