I have been told that a Model A drum can be put on a Model T spindle. I am building a trailer and want a spare. Do you need to change the races in the Model A drum, or can you use the model A drum and bearings on the Model T spindle. Any help would be appreciated. Kevin.
This should help. You have to be register and logged on to see the photos but you should be able to read the text.
In my pile of parts I have a set of spindles that have been modified. They have been shortened and re threaded. Using the A bearings they both have the same thread.
Model A outer's aren't threaded. They slip on and the lock tab washer and nut keeps them in place.
