Most big towns have a shop that relines brakes. As that's not a T brake, I'd take the band to one of those shops for new lining.
Ok that's not model t stuff right on, ill check that out try an put a new pad on the metal. thanks steve
Didn't chrysler use something like that years ago?
Yep, my Dodge has a parking brake like that.
Cool what year and would that be available
1951. I need to keep it for hauling wood and other stuff.
All Chrysler automobiles and Dodge trucks used that lining on their drive shaft mounted parking brakes during the 1930 - 1950 era. It should cost about $60 to get the band lined
Funny guy.... 51 ill check that out thanks steve
Ok frank thank you. Have a good night guys
I use belting, first contact 3M glue then rivits.
Belting is cheap comes in all sizes.
Same belt used on this lathe.
Yep my first car was a fat fendered 1948 Plymouth coupe and it had that same hand operated pull type brake as I recall.
Yeah like a leather belt alright
My 1971 IH grain truck has that type of parking brake. I had it relined few years back at a truck parts place.
Ford trucks had the same band. They all did, Chevvy also.
I don't recall ever seeing a truck over 1 ton that did not have that band at the rear of the gearbox.
Have you ever seen cables going to the rear brakes on a truck? I don't think I have. Not since the model AA.
To answer Aaron's question, Chevy used drum parking brakes like cars on the larger trucks 1946 and back. By 1953, they had the drum on the back of the transmission. In-between.....????? I've had both - and still have some of the transmissions and engines.
My '73 Winnebago with a 413 Dodge engine had an emergency brake on the back of the transmission. Don't ask me how I know.
Mack trucks with Mack engines, back in the 50's also had the emergency brake on the rear of the transmission.
