10" classic mini drums? an ideal thought.

Postby wren1710 » Tue May 01, 2018 3:47 pm

Just what it says. Hypotheticaly the Minor front drums are 8" (mostly) but classic mini ones like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MINI-FRONT-DRUM-BRAKES-10-INCH-WHEELS-TWIN-LEADING-SHOES-COMPLETE-COOPER-MK1-HUB/263630438612?hash=item3d619940d4:g:bnsAAOSwgFJa0Scl are 10" and look like they might fit onto the morris running gear? I know someone said they'd upgraded to 10" drums from a wolsley but they were nearly impossible to find now, do you think these would work instead?

any things possible,

are the bolt holes the same for mounting to the leg,??

A plate could be carefully welded, and redrilled as original, but is it worth it,

I know in the past they did use mini drums but 8'' so you could use the wider mini linings, but cannot remember if this was for the rears,

I don't think the Mini drums are 10" diameter, the classic Mini wheels are 10" diameter and so the drums will be much smaller than that.

Ive got a pair of king pins complete with all the bits, trunnions, hubs, brakes and 10 inch wolsley drums sat about.
In other words, a bolt on replacement for each side.
Dunno what they are worth. could consider moving them on as i wont need them.
