I¥m wondering if its possible to fit Porsche Fuchs wheels onto a link pin car (from `58) using re-drilled drums. I¥m aware that there are issues with the early skinny rear drums/oil seals etc, but AFAIK its possible to convert the rear end to later (`66) rear drums and seals. The front end is what I would like to know about. Are there re-drillable front drums that will fit a linkpin front end and accept the Fuchs wheels? Would make life a lot easier than fitting a disc brake kit.

thanks! :)

Haven't seen any Porsche pattern front drums.. but Machine7 might be able to help on the custom front?

I guess that adapters or dropped spindles (to go to discs) won;t wash with the TuV?

I could use the CSP kit no trouble, but its a faff having to convert to dual circuit brakes (I think you have to) and I figure I spent about enough on this car for now!

Will give Machine 7 a shout.

cheers

Hmmm.... could be. Not sure if they¥ll go on a link pin stub axle is all.

Thanks though.

Thinking out aloud for a bit (I'm definately no expert on this sort of subject.... :eek::lol: ), would the early bearings fit in the later drum?

Do later front drum backing plates share the same bolt mounting pattern as a king and link pin spindle?

They would, but still have the wide five pattern.

The best solution is actually 356C Discs, but I¥m guessing they could be pricey!
