Safety & Reliability Event
April 13 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Club members are invited to the annual Safety & Reliability Check hosted by Vic and Linda Varady at their home lovingly known as Bare Knuckles Garage. For this year’s event, Vic has planned a seminar on the Model A brake system.
Over the last year, a few questions have been brought up and the structure of a brake seminar began to take shape. Following is an outline of what can be covered. If there are additional items which would be of interest, please contact Vic. Different pieces will be available for inspection.
Theory of brakes – dissipation of energy
Cast iron vs. pressed steel brake drums
Swapping hubs to drums
Brake shoes – materials
Brake floaters – why and what is available
Adjusting brakes – methods
Keep your eyes open for your Rumble Seat Reviewer March issue for further details. Please call if you plan to attend so they have and idea of how many people to expect.
