Re: Emergency Brake Drum by Mark O.
Post New Message If you need to completely replace the brake drum, before you try your neighborhood big GM dealer for the parts go to a truck wrecking yard.

If there isn't one close by go online because they are all over the country. Even with shipping the cost should be considerably lower than from the OEM.

If you don't need the bus right now it may be helpful to remove the brake drum so that you can get accurate measurements of the drum width, diameter, and the size and shape of the bolt pattern. With the make and model of the chassis and the make and model of the transmission you should be able to find the correct replacement drum.

You might also try your local industrial/commercial brake parts supply house. Ott's Friction Supply ( in Portland, OR is a good source for brake parts (they supply a lot of the aftermarket brake parts for NAPA).

Good luck and remember to always take off the emergency brake before moving the bus.
