1989 Eriba PUCK brake assembly

A previous owner of my 1989 Puck took the brakes apart but passed away before getting them put back together. I need detailed instruction on how these things are assembled, preferably with pictures. Any help is appreciated. I am located in America, in north Florida.

As a follow up to the post above, after further research it appears my Puck has not had brakes for quite some time. I am wondering if there is any reason to even go to the trouble to put brakes back in it. I am considering leaving it brakeless and having the tongue welded so it no longer telescopes when stopping and starting again. Being this it the smallest and lightest Eriba I see no reason for a brake system. If this caravan was bigger and heavier I would think brakes would be a safety feature in addition to a convenience. Can anybody tell me a good reason why I should go to the trouble to restore this brake system especially since it would also expose me to future maintenance expenses. I have no easy access to replacement parts since this caravan is of European manufacture.

I have just bought a 1988 Puck. I do not think that anyone has replied to this query. Certainly in the United Kingdom and I expect in the rest of Europe any trailer with a weight in excess of 500 kg / 1/2 ton has to be braked. I have no idea what the regulations are in the States. Over here a company called Haynes produces a “ workshop manual” covering the maintenance of older caravans. I have just ordered a copy off eBay. It apparently, among other things, deals with the repair / maintenance of caravan breaking systems. They are, apparently, all more or less the same and fairly simple to service if you are familiar with the “ old school” shoe brakes.

I'm presuming they are Al-ko. This any good ?

This manual is helpful but I need a more detailed manual on actual disassembly and reassembly of these AL-KO brakes. There is contact information in manual you provide here so I will try to use it to obtain what I need exactly. Thank you for what you have provided.

As near as I can tell a trailer/caravan has to be 3,000 pounds or more before brakes are required, at least in the State where I reside (Florida). I will look into the Haynes manual you refer to and see if it covers what I need. I am needing a manual covering detailed disassembly and reassembly of the AL-KO brakes on my 1989 Puck.

Further to my last reply - I have been supplied new brake parts but I have no idea how they go together and more importantly, in what order they are installed.
And yes, these are AL-KO brakes on my 1989 Eriba Puck.
