Is there any difference in the bands for the 1909 to 1925 and the 1926 to 1927 setup? I don's see them in the suppliers catalogs, does anyone sell just the drums for the Rocky's for wood wheels <25?
Thanks

The 1909 - 25 RM bands are larger diameter, because the RM drums are larger than 26 - 27 drums.

Thanks. And no way to mount a 26-27 drum without loosing the small drum because of the shape of the later drums, darn (or putting a later rear end on). What is the outside diameter of the 26-27 drum so I can confirm what I just got? 11 1/4 inches?

They tell me the mounting is different since the backing plate is different.

There are Rocky Mountain Brakes in this club, that most people have, and then there are a few of us that have the real thing, Rocky Mountain Brakes that were made for the T back in the '20s. I prefer the originals, because they work, forward or backwards, and have a whole lot less parts than those complicated un-original rod type brakes that Jack Sunderlin dreamed up, or borrowed from some other application. The brake drums from the originals are even bigger than the reproductions, and use a 3/16 cable and a simple pulley equalizer.
