66 Mustang Front Drum - Hub Interference

1869 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  The Greek
I'm replacing the 10" front drums on my V8-66. The old drum/hub assembly had an interference fit that I had to press out. The replacement drum does not have the same interference. Is this something I should be worried about, or will torqueing the wheel on be enough to take up the slack?

Thanks, John

Put the wheels on and torque to specs :bigthumbsup.
When replacing the front brake drum, you will need to buy new wheel lugs and have them swedged to the hub and drum assembly by a qualified automotive machine shop. This isn't something that can be done by the usual home mechanic. The cost for the procedure isn't much but it has to be done. Again this isn't a home project and as you know brakes are a serious matter.
