I had my 65 caravel
up on the jackstands yesterday and noticed a crack in the hub portion of the hub - drum assembly. Yikes! So now I have questions for those who may have been there:
1. I think I have Kelsey Hayes drums as identified by the look of the brakes. Can I put a Dexter hub on instead, provided I find one with the same bearing IDs and seal ID?
2. What do I do about the brake armature plate? Move it to the new drum?
3. Or does a new drum come thinner with the magnet surface cast into it?
Any thoughts to keep me out of the pitfalls here are greatly appreciated.
