    I just put some Emgos on mine, no problem with fit. Haven't tried them yet the bike is still in the process of being resurrected.

    In the UK there are 2 options, both good, Saftek and Villers services. Both reline and if you give them drum and shoe diameters will size the linings to suit.

    even if they do fit you still need a certain amount of free travel for the cable to reach and you want the cam to be quit a bit off of the flat to get better mechanical advantage on the shoes.

    The only ones I found that fit mine properly without having the cable at almost maximum adjustment came from Madass on this site. The ones I sourced locally had to have the lower adjuster screwed out over 3/4 of the way to get any kind of acceptable lever travel, and that was with a new Venhill cable.
