Wilbur Prop Lock Issues

Anybody have experience with the Wilbur automatic disc proplock ? The caliper no longer locks down with engine off. May need new pads but they are no longer in business. Anyone aware of parts availability ?

All I could find out was their patent. Do you have any photos of what the pads look like? I am thinking that there may be an automotive application that might work....since it is unlikely that they would have had "proprietary" pads made.

The Land Rover in the series I and II had hand brakes that worked on the prop shaft,
It might be worth while doing a search on Ebay
