Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: Rebuilding clutch, brake drum
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Ake Osterdahl on Saturday, January 05, 2013 - 12:42 pm:

When I am bad in English to explain my problem, so I draw instead.
This has probably discussed many times on the forum, changing to 26, 27 transmission, but I want to keep my 1918 transmission.
Does this idea of making plates riveted, bolted behind the boom.
Can you maybe glue with chemical or metal?
You think this might work?


Grateful for help with this Ake

This is what you need;

You can't just make them as the grain of the material has to go in the right direction.
The lug covers need to take care of side to side as well as center to center. The ones shown in Lang's catalog are correct.

Thanks Mark
No they should not build too much on the inner vanes, therefore, only on the edges.
If you understand me.
But it is possible that they might fit if I am filing / sanding down lugs.

They may fit the clutch plates when you have finished, but there won't be enough metal remaining to reliably hold the drive plate bolts. My best advice is to replace the drum. I can probably find a decent one in my supply to send you. Email me at rvmodelt@netsync.net

Which brake drum are you going to use, the 1918 or 1926?

Mark
I was thinking ... using my 1918
Does a 1926 transmission that will be used for future Spedster.

Been thinking more about this, here in Sweden, there are many who have bad old drums that could be renovated and used further.
If you weld with solid brass these plates are of harder material, as illustrated. Will this be able to work well I think.

A wide drum can be machined to a narrow drum. Just be sure to put the lip in the end of the drum to help center the driving plate like original.

Good idea Larry, thanks
... but would love to be able to reuse many old drums.
In the U.S., there are many of the newer model.
RV Andersson has promised me a good drum to be sent to me, which I thank him extra for!
Will be back with my project with the renovation of an older model, which I will also test on another engine.
