<<They most definitely are. They come from Bowser and are marketed in the
Cal
Scale line. The part number is 190-283.

I, too, have trouble with the cast resin brake components, and this part has
become my standard.

Another option is Detail Associates 6227. This looks like the set that Ted
used in his RMC sidebar on AB brakes. It contains some different brake
wheels and housings, as well as some other parts that certain applications
need.

The parts in the Cal Scale AB set in general are larger than the ones in DA
6227. I wonder which set is more accurate?

Also Grandt Line 5232 appears to be the same as the DA set.
