Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2011: Auxiliary Brake Brands?

Our 1914 Touring was purchased with "Rocky Mountain" brakes in 1969. However the brand - as near as I can tell is "LOCK GOOD"
and bears an additional notation 21R on the right wheel and
21L on the left wheel. Has anyone done an inventory of how many brands of auxiliary brakes were made for T's? Photos (upside down, so they are readable) are attached. Just wondering.

Well, I'm sure I don't know all or even a significant percentage of the brands, but there's Bennett, Rockie Mountian, and AC that I know of (and of couse your Lock Good brand).

Master Brake.
I've seen several original sets that don't have any name on them.

"Stronghold" is a nice one.
Much better than something like "Oh Dear!"

Anyone want to guess who made these?

You made them?

Looks like Buick bands and mechanism put on a very well made bracket.
Drive carefully (you've got a good start with those brakes), and enjoy, W2

I have a set of MASTER BRAKES that I plan to use. I have the drums (10" cast iron) the brackets, and the bands. I plan to adapt the rocky mountain linkage to them.

Does anybody have a set on their car? How do the drums bolt to the hubs? They are cast iron, so will require longer bolts, but the holes are also square like the bolts would come through from the inside. Is this correct? Is there a special plate with round holes for the outside of the hub? Special nuts?

Royce's brakes could be from a fellow by the name of Jess Bonar - he manufactured a similar modern version but that was quite a few years back.

Here are some more versions. None have any names on them. The first two I took off the shelf, both used wire cable to pull them on.

This first one is for a small drum and bolts to the bottom radius rod bolt and the rear handbrake pivot bolt. Note the lever is at the back and pull forward over the top of the axle.

This one is for 26-27 large drum rear end and uses the radius rod bolts.

These ones are on my Fronty and were adapted from a Dodge.

The brakes on the '14 were made from scratch by my Dad about 20 years ago. A single brake rod goes down the middle to the cross tube. These brakes work just as well backward as they do forward.






Of course the transmission brake still is functional too.

Royce's dad's brakes are similar in design to Chevy brakes c:a 1926-'28.
