Hi Folks, Having trouble with my brakes - just not stopping quick enough. A friend gave me a hand to have a look and it appears the shoes are only touching the drums in small contact patches near the ends of the shoe. It looks as if the drums have been machined out and the arc of the shoes is now incorrect for the drum diameter. Here's what I have: 1940 Ford hubs 1937 Ford Spindles 1939 Lincoln Zephyr backing plates 1956 Buick 45 fin drums Now re-radiusing the shoes is something I've heard about, but no-one in Scotland knows anything about that. What are my options? Does anyone do repro drums? Can I simply put longer actuating rods in the wheel cylinders to bring the top of the shoes out? Help!
