  • brake adjusters

    I only had enough time this past weekend to remove one front drum/hub from the front of my 55 truck for a look inside.After a quick check I had to replace the drum/hub so I could move the truck.I found no unpleasant suprises . One thing I did notice was one of the adjusting cams was loose enough that I turned it with my fingers.Now I'm wondering ... Are the holes in the backing plate threaded ? I know about the locking nuts on the back side of the plate . I think if the holes are threaded I have a problem. Thanks.[?]

    The holes aren't threaded. What holds the adjusters after you get them where you want, is that locknut.

    Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
