Electric trailer brakes on the front wheels only!

Wonder how well that idea works?

Jesus, look at that Rube Goldberg device attached where the sediment bowl should be. I also wonder about that belt driven alternator in use with a generator block off plate. The wiring and that extra switch under the dash...... I NEED this car.

I wonder where the water heater is located? He's got all the gas valves in there!

I have wondered about electric brakes myself but have been told they tend to be binary when applying. My trailer brakes seem to confirm that hypothesis.

Looks like a pretty good starting point for someone wanting a tudor. The price isn't too bad either for a running car. I'm just wondering where all the modifications and "upgrades" are. Might be a heck of a project to return to original equipment.

Yea it would be a fine car as long as it's running good, but I would hate to have to come behind someone else and troubleshoot a problem with all those modifications.

I didn't see any type of variable resistor in the trailer brake set up which means if they are activated they will go to full power Lock up front wheels.....doesn’t sound good to me :-(
