Gentlemen,
Thanks for your responses and interest to help. My need was discovered in the middle of the annual by my AP/IA. I saw no leaking fluid flying earlier this year, but on the one side apparantly the blocks are soaked . Natually he tried to source these hens teeth through his contacts and I wanted to give this good site a try know they were scarce for a long time. I have had the cub for 10 years now and have decided its time to go with the Grove conversation while the plane is away at its annual.
Thanks again for the read and your interest.
BTW, I am based suburban/rural Phila. O03 Morgatown on a grass strip. Annual is being performed at another location.

Don't throw the unsoaked blocks away. Donate them. Somebody will be able to use them to refurbish his stock brakes.

WA3MOS,
I think you made the right decision on getting the Grove conversion. It's one thing to keep replacing the old bladders if you can get them at a reasonable price. Some of those bladder out there are 50,60 or 70 years old. It doesn't make sense unless you can get them cheap and can do the work yourself.
73,

I've been using the same ole bladders for most of their sixty some odd years. I think they're going to outlast me.
