Whats this on my S1 brake drum?


Recommended Posts

What is the band round the brake drum for?

Is it some sort of anti squeal or what?



It might be but i have never before seen or heard of this idea :unsure: . My guess is that a previous owner has fitted it because the drum is cracked :o and they did not want to fit a new drum. Play safe and junk that drum and any others that have this on them and fit new ones. :)

Contact one of the technical officers on the S1 website before you destroy something that might be of importance. You could also contact James Taylor via LRE. I have his 'Original Land-Rover series 1' book here. I'll have a look through it to see if those things get a mention.

I would tend to agree with Andy - something to do with keeping the brakes clear of mud.

Les. :)
