  Hello Everybody
I need new brake drums for my Early V8 from 1936. Does anybody know where i can get them? (10.25 inch ring diameter for the wheelbolds)
Kind regards

  The wide 5 drums are difficult to find in usable condition. You might try a brake drum relining process to have cast irron liners installed in your drums. The process is more expensive than new drums for the later model cars.

This outfit only talks about relining aluminum drums, but at a swap meet the owner said that they could do cast iron drums.

You should show your location since brake drums are very heavy and expensive to ship. I have some, but you may be too far away. Do you need fronts or rears or all four? Have you measured the drums that you have?

  I am in Switzerland

Inner diameter is 305mm

My father did brake out a piece as he was disambling the brakes. We are currently checking to find somebody to repair them as we found it very difficult to find new parts.

We were very supriced to find it so difficult to find this part......
