Howdy Justkip,

I just found this out when over on Soviet Steeds, NO disrespect meant to Igor Rumyantsev, the "Igor" I mentioned is a boogie man used to scare IMWA employees and others who frequent Little Irbit into not overstepping the security bounds laid out by Ilya.

Parking brakes, eh? Didn't the old Land Rover series rigs have the parking brake clamp onto the driveshaft? Wouldn't that be an easier method than trying to figure out something on the rear disc? It's been 20 years since I rebuild my old SIII LR, so I may be way off on this.

No, not yet. I stopped by to get a Heidenau for the front of the Beemer rig. I'd consider a new one if the FI works well.

ISTR a few posts where guys were making a mechanism that locked the footbrake in place. Maybe one of the Aussie threads?

Howdy Bobmws,

That is how the parking brake now works on the Ural, you depress the rear brake pedal and then move a small lever-knob that locks it down.

The rig equipped with disk brakes has a lever that actuates the rear disk brake caliper on the pusher wheel, this lever is separate from the regular braking system no need to depress the rear foot brake pedal as is the case on the drum brakes.

Bumping this back to the top for one more question for those who have seen the FI rig...Is there still a working kick starter?

Not the best of pics but the lever above the foot pedal holds it on and works well as a handbrake.

FI for better mileage and altitude performance would be a significant leap forward.

If they can keep pricing static (I think the new ones are bit spendy as it is), they should increase market interest.
