if rivets are showing on drum, grind them off and drum will come off. if you have a guide for wheel placement it should clear. we spent several hours trying to remove drum with rivites still in place.

Expertise

I can help on most American passenger cars built between 1930 and 1970, and Imperials through 1983. I have over 50 years experience in restoring and maintaining antique and classic cars, including 20 years operating a classic car repair shop. I am now retired, but I am willing to help with any questions of a technical or mechanical nature. I have more experience with Packard, Studebaker, Hudson, Imperial and other luxury makes, but I do have reference material and experience with most makes.


I do not know anything about modifying cars - if that is what you want to know about, pick someone else. I keep them the way the factory built them, and I advise you to do the same, to maintain the value of the car and also for your safety.


I can only handle mechanical or technical questions - I am not a body/paint expert!
