Early Ford Wide 5 Drum Set Up

2/6/2018

Tim answers the frequent question of which drum brakes can be used with Speedway’s Bendix Style Brakes. If you would like to learn more about the self-energizing aspect of the backing plate, Tim explains in further detail in his Speedway Tech Talk - Ford Juice Brakes Versus Self-Energizing Brakes.

In this video, Tim explains how Wide 5 brake drums work in this set up. Whether you are part of the resurgence of people wanting to run these on their hot rods or your ride originally had these and you want to keep them while upgrading – this is a great way to get more stopping power.

Tim's demonstration will help you install this set up with ease.
