Brake Flange??? Make My Day...

Planning to put brakes on my '74 Trillium 1300. Pulled a wheel this morning, and found this flange, about 4" square, four holes in it - please, please tell me it's the brake drum mounting flange - be real good if I didn't have to replace the axle to get brakes...oh, ya....

Can anyone suggest a good source for a brake kit - I'm in Canada, but have no problem ordering from the U.S.

Due to shipping cost I think you will be better going local.

I replaced my brakes this past summer and used Dexter never adjust brakes well worth the extra money. I think the price difference was something like 30.00 a side to do that.

I have found Etrailer.com to be a good source for electric brake parts.

Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for Electric Brakes - 2,000-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - E-Z Lube Dexter Trailer Hubs and Drums 8-257-5UC3-EZ

You may want to check to see if your axle is worn out before you buy brakes and a controller for the existing one. Might save you money down the road to replace the axle with a new one with brakes already installed.

Good Luck on your project!

I have bought from etrailer.com. They are good guys and offer a lot of help on their site. First place I look for trailer undercarriage gear.

I bought from Eastern Marine. I'd check them and Southwest Wheel in addition to eTrailer and eBay.

You might even try your local auto parts store, some of the little guys offer pretty competitive pricing these days - once you add in the shipping from the USA to Canada cost into the mix.
