All Frictions, Portland, Connecticut. He even had me measure my newly machined drums and contoured the shoes to match. $20 per shoe. He did the brakes for both model A Fords also.

A while ago I asked about improving brakes on my 40. I installed the Bendix kit from Boling Brothers, and just finished rebuilding the Lockheeds on the rear. I had soft linings bonded on at the...

Re: rear hub grease seals

Mine have one snap ring, and it is right at the bearing, not at the seal. You may have done many of these, but not this one.

Re: 31 Deluxe Roadster Cowl Lights?

Another clue is the seats. If they are original (probably not) the standard has wider pleats than the deluxe.

Re: rear hub grease seals

Well that is confusing, since the snap ring is against the bearing, and the seal goes in after.
