Just curious...why haven't we seen more on hydraulic brake conversions? I know about the disc brake kit you can buy, but why not a drum conversion? I've seen it done enough times, but I would've thought there'd be a kit for drums for those who would like a stock look with a bit of added safety. Has anyone done the research for a "backyard conversion?" By that I mean, an over the counter drum that fits the T bolt pattern with little modification to make the components fit the T backing plate. Would love to hear people's thoughts or maybe a component list of what they have done or seen.

I have seen Chevy drum hudraulics done on a Model T sedan. They were adapted by the owner and not commercially made.

Look up Dan McEachern. I believe he offers a set for the big drum

I have a set of tecnicore hydraulic brakes on my 15 roadster. I believe they were made in the late 1990s by a gentleman that had since passed. I am very happy with them. They use a cast iron drum with the same I.D. of the stock small drum. The small drum does not have a lot of surface area, but they stop my light weight roadster just fine. They my not work as well on a heavier sedan or centerdoor. They also work well in reverse. The photo is not of my car but are same as the set on my car.
