Anyway, we are converting these
Into something looking like this
Five front brake drums were de-rusted in the molasses bath a few months back, and after I selected the best two a protective coating of rustbuster was removed with a powered wire brush.
I found 5 good sets (30) of wheel studs out of about 10 sets (60), which required wire brushing and cleaning the thread
The hub grease seals were disassembled, the felt inner replaced and then put back together.
The main grease seal is two part, with this part sitting behind the inner bearing outer, up against the brake backing plate
The second part of the grease seal is held onto the inside of the brake drum by the wheel studs.
The next job was the fit the inner and outer front wheel bearing shells.
Disc wheel retaining plates
Primer today, all being well, full gloss black top coat tomorrow or Monday.
One step closer to fitting wheels to this beast
