  1. Hi, I am looking for a L.H. spindle (stub axle) for my 1914 Overland Model 79 Speedster, Part. No. 7627 (same as used on models 59 & 69). Please email me if you can help. I am happy to pay for postage from the US to Australia as well as the purchase price of course. benhopkins@hotmail.com Thanks Ben Hopkins (Australia)
  2. Thanks Ivan I'll look into the spray steel. Ben
  3. Thanks for your replys so far everyone all very interesting. Unfortunately the orignal drums that I have are very heavily pitted from rust so may be beyond repair. I forward all this onto my father to see what he thinks. Putting the groves in the external band lining is a good tip thanks I'll keep that in mind. Ben
  4. Hi all, I need some advice on making new brake drums for my 1914 Overland Model 79 speedster project. The originals appear to be made from some sort of high tensile pressed steel. My father and I are thinking about fabricating them from carbon steel hollow bar, but heard the thermal and braking properties of ordinary steel are not that good. Another option we have come across is having them cast in mehanite, but have concerns for long term durability due to the thin wall of Overland brake drums, however the wall thickness could be increased marginally. Any comments or if anyone knows o
