    Rear Brake Drum - 1937 Dictator

    I need to find a replacement rear brake drum for my 37 Dictator. Ideally I will locate one from a 37, but can anyone tell me which years/models would also be suitable .
    I will try to find something suitable here in Australia as shipping costs from US will be pretty steep.
    Thanks in advance.

    looks to me like 1935 will work. The book lists different drum/hub combinations for the different wheels used in that era. A bit confusing so hopefully someone will
    know more.
    Do you need just the drum or the drum/hub combination and what wheels are used disc or artillery?

    Thank you. I'm fairly certain I only to replace the drum as it is bent and out of alignment. I think I can make the hub etc fit a replacement drum. My wheels are the disc type.
