The Boat Trailering Guys


I am replacing wheel cylinders on my ez loader boat trailer and question the last guy to own the trailer to installed the shoes, plates, springs correctly.. Is there any info, pictures, diagrams, etc on surge brakes (free backing type) on the internet that I can look at to be sure I am installing everything correctly. Example: does the tear-drop small plate at the top go behind the two shoe plates or in front of them? Thanks,

Bonnie Clint, Kent, Wa.
