After having the inspection and repair carried out on the drum it was now time to clean up the drum and inspect the bearings.
After a soaking in the paraffin bucket to loosen up the old grease it was time for the parts washer. Parts washer is a little small but does the job
Things are now a lot cleaner and the bearing races are in as good a shape as the actual bearings
Looking at the part number it seems this is a 1940 – 48 hub and drum so should match the one currently on the drivers side.
Currently and since I got the car the drum on the passenger side is the Lincoln type as far as I know, either way it doesn’t match
These differ as they are ribbed
You can see the state of things when the car arrived nearly 10 years ago here
Once the bearings have had a good soak then work can continue.
Need to do some research on the grease cap on the “new” drum as it’s threaded and my be difficult to obtain.
