    Need info on Lamb wheels and brakes

    I'm restoring a Rearwin Cloudster and it has been strongly recommended by a friend that has flown one to upgrade the brakes to Grove. Somewhere in the past the plane was converted from its original 3 inch wheels to 4 inch. I just assumed they were Cub wheels but didn't really look until today. The wheel is stamped "Lamb" and the brakes are a multi-disk stack keyed to the inner wheel. It stops by mechanically squeezing the whole stack. It also has a 11/2" axle. But before I yank them off I'd like to know more about what I've got. What's their history? How effective are they? Are parts available? Does anyone have info on the Lamb system? Thanks.
