    No, not yet at least. That's why I scoff every one I can on the chance It may be useable. And why the NOS one or 2 that turn up occasionally go for gold price.

    4 what it is worth ,I had some trouble getting a set to work on my car,If I am right the mechanical brakes on the 36 are different offset than the hyd. drums. Maybe different on other years also.

    My understanding is there is interfearence with the wheel cylinder and some high spots inside '36 hubs. But others have said that it is small potatoes, light lathe or disc grinder trim job. don't know yet, haven't had that trouble, YET. My hubs were supposed to be 37
