    I just did a disk swap.

    Does anyone need anything from the drum setup before I chunk it all?

    If you still have them, I'll take the hubs. Are they 5-lug?

    Yes, 5 lug.

    Need the drums too or you want me to take the hubs out?

    Coming near Central Texas anytime? or Shipped?

    I just need the hubs. If you're willing to ship I'll gladly pay the costs and more for your trouble.

    Thanks!

    I couldn't get the hubs out. Never done it before and I didn't want to screw up the lugs by banging on them. I can ship the whole thing if you are interested. I think the drums are in fairly decent shape.

    Hey Capt Dan,

    If you figure out how to get them apart I would like both spindles.

    PM me or call me between 8-8PST 6192469855 and I could walk through how to take them apart for a good deal:D

    Capt Dan,

    I'd be happy to pay shipping on the whole lot if you can't get everything apart. If you can, I only need the hubs. Just let me know how much you want and I can send you the money.

    Thanks!

    I used the spindles in the conversion. Just parting out the drum brake parts.
    smercier has spoken for the hubs (and by default, the drums)

    I think I have another set on the shelf somewhere.

    The only thing I have left that might be of value are the backing plates.

    If smercier doesn't end up geting the drums/hubs I'd like to get my hands on them.

    sorry for the delay. I have been traveling. I hope to get a cost to smercier by the end of the week. Just in case, what is your zip, Rusty67? I may have another set of drums and hubs on the shelf.

    Anyone want the backing plates?

    Capt Dan,

    I was just checking to see if you still had these. No worries either way, and I'm also not in any hurry. It'll be a while before I'm ready to reassemble my front end. Thanks!

    Yes, I still have them. Sorry for not moving on this quicker. I have not had a chance to work on it since I talked with you last. They are yours when I can get back out to the shop and get you a cost on shipping. Thanks for your patience.

    What do you have left of this? I am looking for some spindles/hubs if you still have any of it.
