BTW, Welcome to the forum!!

Thanks for the welcome!!!!!!
I would blame old age for that slip-up but I can't yet.....drats.
You are right..........the round jobbers were getting hard to find.
The main reason I started buying magnets (or trying to) in the beginning was that the wires going into the magnet itself kept "melting".
Once the wire corrodes or whatever, a new magnet is the only fix.
Mine should be good for 30 more least they better!!

I might also add to those joining us that it is very important to replace the bolts that hold the brake assembly to the axle.
I went with metal grade-8 lock nuts. Don't ever use nylon lock nuts on these as the heat will melt the nylon.
