Can Rocky mountin brakes be installed with Hassler shocks?
If you have pancake shocks they will just fit.
The Pancakes are the only style that lets the rear Pancake bracket stand high enough over the brake drum to allow RM brake band to clear. Even then, sometimes a bit of grinding on the bracket for a bit more clearance is helpful.
Pancake Hassler on rear of '26
Hard choice, safety or style, guess I will go with the brakes, anyone want to buy a complete set of Hasslers?
Put the front ones on, they do a lot of good.
The back one don't do any thing, but make the car lean when you go around a corner.
OK one quick question, do pancake hasslers only fit 26/27? I once bought a chassie with them on it and would date it 23/25
The Pancake Hassler was introduced Sept. 1924, long before the Improved Ford. The new pancake design had only one spring, did away with inventory of the previous design, which needed different coil springs.
I think it was on here in an earlier post that AC brakes work OK with Hassler shocks.
I have Ac brakes and pancake Hasslers on one of mine.
