It sounds like you need Kinmont brakes to go with your Ardun then...
No, I has not those ideas !
Yep, the Holy trinity. Halibrand, Ardun, Kinmont.
Alright now here's something to throw everyone off..
'39-40 Lincoln "Deep" Front backing plates to be run on '32-34 spindles.
'42-48 Ford Rear backing plates.
'36 "Vented" Front & Rear Wide 5 drums.
It was a pain to find everything, but I am glad I did!
Well Kinmont is cool stuff but not on this car.
I checked out a nice kit of Lincoln brakes tody, very nice backingplate and drums ( complete ) expensive yes but Ok.
But its the semi offset 1942 model.
Owner said they are the best as ’scrub’ will be best of this 3 models.
Its not as deep as the 39 but still offset.
Any thoughts on the front 42 model ?
Rear was Ok as they is the same.
I can go 2 ways here, try to find ( maybe here on HAMB ) the flat 41 styles in front and try to get the rears and use my Ford drums/hubs I has.
Or I can get the 42 semi offset styles ( as I found a complete set here in Sweden with drums etc )
I might has found a rear set in USA.
Issue is I like the flat better in front.
If the 'scrub' is a issue on the 41, get back on that deal.
If anyone read this and has 2 fronts of the 1941 style ( flat ) backing plates = contact me.
Just picked up the Lincoln 42/48 brakes found for my 32 coupe.
They will replace the Ford 40 I first bought.
Not cheap, but not that bad either.
Complete and in a very nice condition.
I also found some cool stuff, but thats another thread..
This was a cool Bendix racing backing plates I saw today.
Don't know of old stuff or repros later on.
That C4 Racing Equipment backing plate was made for circle track racing, manufactured in the late 50’s or early 60’s.
Built up several sets of Circle 4 brakes a couple years ago. Made for a nice brake set-up.
