Changing bands in my T ski doodle I discovered that the
Low band was a raybestos brand and it was broken has
Anyone had the same trouble with these bands ?
Just curious

Instead of T era aftermarket, that may be out of some early automatic transmission. GM Hydramatic can be adapted but I don't think that one of those .

its an aftermarket Model T era replacement. Several companies made them. Doubt too many modern era automatics used Model T bands in them!
As you have found out- the Ford originals- either the slot or button type are best.

I had a set of those in one of my T's. Don't recall any issues with them.

Yes. I had Raybestos bands in my car and the low band broke like that. They do have a weak point. Now I have Ford bands and they are the best as you say.
