Springer drum brake replacement

#1

Hi all,
any suggestions for an easy replacement front drum brake? i.e. just spacers and a link arm,(once it's laced obviously. I know anything can be made to fit but previous experiences of what works are always useful.
thanks J.

Thanks Haggis,
Yeah, I was aware of that as an option, just wondered if there was an efficient jap drum that was easily adaptable (and cheap). The two cammer would keep it all looking good though....
Thanks for the reply
J.

Would it work ok with a shortened cable arm?
The look of that puts me off a bit, and if shortening it
lessens the brakes' power, I'm back to where I started !

I have a couple of mechanical disc brake setups from a skid steer 6-wheel swamp buggy, the rotors are small and may be of use someday. ever think something like that might be adapted? dual 6" mechanical discs?
