Re: new member

very nice truck. the building looks very unique, almost like a carpenter gothic bungalow cross. Is it old or did you make it. It looks like the truck and it belong together.

what is a brake wedge "pill"

an old wise man told me that he fixed his brakes on his model A with a "pill". I listened and then thought he was making a joke or talking gibberish. I soon realized he was not.

Re: 28 worm drive brake drums

i saw several ideas about paint, tape, etc. on the shoes. what did you finally find worked best. are your shoes braided or smooth? and then did you apply a small bit of pressure and have someone turn the drum by hand for contact. thank you for your help in advance. kevin
