Type3 Brake Drum Replacement - What to Buy?
hulbyw - March 18th, 2019 at 07:19 PM

I have Type3 rear drums on my '68 Beetle and the verdict today was one is good and the other is right on the limit. So, given my chances of finding a good original German drum are fairly remote, what brand/country of origin should I be looking at?

I think your only option is to look for good 2nd hand ones that still have a bit of meat on them

Come on Birch - surely Vintage have new ones?

I wouldn't fit new ones...

Agree, but so far I have not been able to find a good original. Still looking though

What rear end do you have swing axle or IRS on the beetle

is it single drum or 2 piece drum and hub

Swing axle with 2 piece drum and hub
