  • seperating drums from hubs

    hows the easiest way to do this? Thanks

    It takes a swedge cutter since the studs are swedged after the hub and drum are put together and it will also take new studs which will have to be swaged. What are you trying to do and where are you located then maybe we can help you better.

      I use a 1/2" dia. metal cutting hole saw to cut the swedges. Watch the depth of the cut if you are going to re-use the drum.

        I thought it was a 5/8" hole saw with a 1/2" ID. Like the one sold at Ace. Rod

        Thanks guys---I`ll do that swedge cut on the studs (dynamite if that won`t work...) I plan to replace the 4 drums--too far out of round on the fronts---rears need turned but nobody around here can do them---guess i could rig up something on my lathe. We put 2000 miles on this car on a Spain/portugal tour this summer and wore out the brakes in the mountains. Thanks, Paul

          I can cut the rear drums for you but i'm a little far from Spain

        I watched a video on U tube, guy had a special drill to cut the swage. Look for the tool, did not find one. I did not think of the metal hole saw.
        Good deal, got one of those.

          A guy in our club made a cutter by drilling a hole in a steel rod for the stud, then cut a slit to hold a small triangular carbide bit as used on cutting bits for metal lathes. The bit has a hole in the center for a screw to hold it in place. I'm planning to make a tool like that also.

            I did this probably the hard way but I drilled down the center of the stud, after that I took a cut off wheel and cut most of the stud down then I drilled with a big bit to cut most of the chamber then press what was left out took very little press to do but be sure to support the hub so you do not bend it never even thought about a hole saw but a great idea but then is there is a long way to do things I will do it.

              Paul and Mitch, do you remove the pilot drill from a regular hole saw, or is there something special to it?

                I found this one, little pricey for the avg guy to use a couple of times. Could rent it out I guess.

                  Why not just get a metal hole saw as mentioned?

                Good point, no doubt will do that. I am a tool freak, love tools.

                  Will this do 20 studs (a complete set)? or would you have to use several to get the job done?

                Changing hubs and brake drums
                by Poor Boy
                Good morning guys. Still working on my rolling chassis and now looking at the rear brake drum/ hub assemblies. I know that I should be buying new units with cast drums, but that is just not going to happen at this time. The existing pressed drums look like new, but the hubs look like they have never seen grease. I would like to switch the usable drums to a better set of hubs. I speculate that...

                New front hubs with cast iron drums
                by popsjohn
                Are there any reasons why I shouldn’t use the hubs that are on my car with new cast iron drums? The current drums are steel. Buying new hubs or just buying a new hub/drum assembly will add significant cost. I realize that I should use new wheel studs.

                Brake drum/hub question
                by wrndln
                I have a brake drum/hub that has 2 broken off studs. I have a 12 ton press. Will a 12 ton press, press out the broken studs and install new ones? I have no idea how much pressure it takes to press out and in studs. I am not sure if there is a "collar" on the wheel side that needs to be removed before attempting to press out the broken studs. If anyone has done what I am trying to do,...

                Types of rear brake drums
                by wrndln
                I guess this would qualify as a fine point topic. There are two styles of stamped rear brake drum/hubs. The first style has a raised area above where the tapered part of the axle is inside the drum/hub. The second style has a recessed groove in the same area. I am trying to find out when Ford switched from raised to recessed drum/hubs. I suppose that Ford may have used both interchangeably until they...

                Original brake drums
                by mfarley
                I need to have some original-style drums turned. What is the minimum wall thickness before I should not use the drums any longer?

                Brake drum thickness
                by wrndln
                I tried to search for the thickness for brake drums that provide enough material to be safe, but I couldn't find anything. I have seen information on ********, but I can't remember what the minimum thickness was. I know it is a little subjective, but I have some drums that are too thin and some that appear to maybe be OK. I know the inside original dimension is 11", but I don't have a inside...

                Replacing lug in wheel hub
                by conaway2
                One of the lugs in a front wheel hub needs to be replaced - is this something I can do with hand tools, or do I need access to a press ??

                thanks - JIm

                Rear brake hubs/drums
                by wrndln
                I am trying to figure out what brake hubs/drums were originally used for 28 and 29 vehicles. I know they are interchangeable, but I would like to use the correct hubs/drums for my vehicles. All my model A's (four of them) are between Sept 28 and July 29. The early hubs have a raised area on them - first picture. Later hubs had a recessed groove on the hubs - second picture. I looked through...

                Emergency drum size
                by Chuck Sea/Tac
                Anyone know the measurement of the emergency part of the drum. I bought some cast iron drums 15 years ago, and the machinist didn’t turn that part of the drum. I didn’t realize it had to be turned as well, so I ground the shoes down to fit. They are pretty thin and are starting to come apart at one end, so I need to get new lining and get the drums turned for just the emergency band....
