President Brake Drums.

Recommended Posts

I have a complete set of 15" drums, shoes, backing plates, small parts, etc. from a 1929 President.  Very heavy stuff to ship to Australia from Boston, Mass. area, but can be done.  Yours for $350 plus shipping.  It may require special heat-treated plywood crating to go to Australia.  Normal minimum charge for sea freight is for 1 cubic meter volume, haven't found a way to beat that.  These are older photos, drums are removed from wood wheels and hubs.

Gary Ash, unfortunately your drums are not suitable as my car has wire wheels. which I didn't think to mention. As for shipping to Australia, I just need them shipped to Anaheim. The condition of your drums is  exactly  what I want. So if anyone has a pair of 29 FE FH front brake drums for a wire wheel President and can have them shipped to Anaheim at a reasonable price. I am interested.

I wonder if the drums are the same but the pattern and number of drilled holes is different.  A little welding, a little drilling...

Is this drum only used on wire wheel 1929/30 Presidents or Commanders as well.

Are they 15" inside diameter. What is the shoes width.

I will measure some of the drums like that when the weather warms up.
