Erie wheels

Post by model A Rick » September 14th, 2018, 5:54 am

I am missing lock ring retainers on rear wheel studs. Can anyone give me an avenue on finding the parts? I am enclosing pictures. Also, I need to find break shoe pads for the rear wheels and they measure 2 and 3/4 inches wide. Does anyone know of a supplier? Thanks for your help

Hello Rick,
I'm also looking for some wedges for my Erie Wheels. I was going to check with a foundry I used before about casting me some new ones. Mine don't have the "Erie" name on them though and may be about 1/4" shorter than the one you have pictured. On the back side of the wedge mine have the markings "83F" and a capital "M" inside a larger "G". I'm not sure who the manufacturer might be. Do you have the cast "Erie" hubcaps? I have some but was thinking of having a few extra made of them too.

Hello Keith
Sorry to be so late in responding. I have submitted a picture of the back side of the wedge. Hope you can see it, as I am not use to sending pictures in this format. Never thought about recasting the wedges, but will consider doing this. Do you have any idea on the cost? Also, I have no hub caps on the chassis, so I have no clue as to what they look like. If you want, I can give you my phone number so we can talk further. Thanks
Rick
