Default 1939 - 1948 Lincoln Style Bendix Brake Parts

City: Bedford
State: TX
Price: 59.00 set

Gents, I am thinking about having these parts made in Stainless Steel. I am currently building a '32 5W using the Wilson Welding reproduction '39 Lincoln drum brakes on the front and I had a friend make me a pair of these spring retainer bolts in stainless, and I love 'em! NO MORE RUST! Now other guys are asking for them as well. I've got over $200 in the handmade ones, and I know nobody (except me) would pay that for them. So, I'm trying to gauge the market for them at a price point of $59.00 per set. This would include: 2 bolts, 2 nuts, 2 special made flat washers (with notch), and 2 split lock washers ALL in STAINLESS STEEL! If you already have a car with the '39 Lincoln Bendix self-energizing backing plates or are building one and would be willing to make this upgrade at this price (or not) please let me know. Hopefully, if there is enough interest in them, I will put them into production. Respectfully, John (32partsguy)

Gents, I have pulled the trigger and I am having these parts made in Stainless Steel. I am currently building a '32 5W using the Wilson Welding reproduction '39 Lincoln drum brakes on the front and I had a friend make me a pair of these spring retainer bolts in stainless, and I love 'em! NO MORE RUST! Now other guys are asking for them as well. I've got over $200 in the handmade ones, and I know nobody (except me) would pay that for them. So, I'm having 50 pieces (25 pairs) CNC'd as you read this. The full kit will include: 2 spring retainer bolts, 2 hex nuts, 2 special made flat washers (with notch), and 2 split lock washers, ALL in 304 STAINLESS STEEL! If you already have a car with the stock (or Wilson Welding brand) '39 Lincoln Bendix self-energizing backing plates or are building one and would be willing to make this upgrade at this price please let me know. Hopefully, I will have these ready to ship in the next 30 days!

Respectfully,

John (32partsguy)
