Re: Have you seen this style of top strap before?

John,
I'm glad to see you brought this back up. It would probably be better if you started a new post, with a better subject line, as it would be seen by more people. I'd do it but I'm not very techy. Most everything I do has to be spell checked by my wife and sometimes she can be difficult ;)

Mine are strictly bolt together. Some use of simple spacers to manage depth of drum vs. backing plates but quite straight forward. Looks like you would be starting the process for using wood wheel hubs from scratch regardless of bolting vs. welding. I did not find a need for a proportioning valve. ...
