Does anyone have brake shoes for a 1926 TT? How about pictures so I can make my own?
Try Ford-N-More in Spokane, Tom had a Few sitting on the back shelf. 1-800-327-1469
The set for sale in the link pasted by Mark is, so far, a really good buy. They're a little hard to find and can be costly. They are a cast part so making a set May not be very realistic. I'd bid on them and expect the price to go up several times over the current bid (I have no connection to the auction).
Just my $.02 worth. Good luck!
I found these adapted Chrysler brake shoes in my TT project. It used to be that parts stores had books with pictures of brake shoes so you could find one that matched what you wanted, or was similar and could be made to work. I don't know if you can still do that.
Not any more Steve now everything is done by application through the computer. I love telling the young people at the parts counter step away from the computer and no one gets irate!
So, what is so TT about those Chrysler shoes? What is all that brazing about? Change the radius/diameter?
Yes, brake shoes are hard to find, but why? I had to buy an entire rear end to get a set.
The only thing TT about them is they've been adapted with a little cutting and bending to fit into a shorter curve. If they work, that's fine with me. They'll be out of sight.
The reason TT shoes are hard to find is because they are cast. The Cast is brittle and they are often broken.
What Chrysler year and model had the brake shoes you adapted?
Dunno,Ted. That's the way I found them. They were in the project when I bought it.
That eBay link that Mark posted might be your best bet but I'd expect the price (and $18 ? shipping) to go up considerably in the next 5 days. If you don't win the auction or get a set from Tom, PM me as I have several sets that I'd sell.
George, I lost the auction so I am interested in your brake offer.
If you anyone else is looking there have been a number of TT brake parts on ebay this week.
Sent you a PM this morning Bill
