  • One man's junk...another's treasure?

    54 Stude front brakes, drums, hubs, backing plates, bearings etc. up for grabs. They were in working order when I removed them to install Turner disc brakes. I have no idea why I kept them, but they need to be gone. In Calgary Alberta area for free pick-up. Thought I would offer them to club members first before putting on local kijiji. Thanks, Junior

        What does the body tag on the firewall say? Or the Serial No.?

          The car is a Champion, but I meant how can I tell if they are Commander or Champion brakes...they might have been changed when the Stude v-8 was swapped in. Thanks, Junior

            Champion front drums would be 10", Commander 11". That is the I.D. of the drum, in each case. I can take them off your hands, because I save stuff like that, but I can't be in Calgary until just before Christmas.
