Thanks all for the compliments, all the work done on the engine would not have been possible or as easy as it was without all the great wealth of knowledge here. Pretty sure I read every post on this forum that had to do with engine/trans/primary mods and was able to piece together something that fit "my bill"  ;D

No plans for the brakes other than messing with them till I get it right, I have "arc'd" the shoes to the drums, spent time fine tuning the brake arms link to apply at the same time and have the heavy duty cable. Biggest issue is the drum is slightly out of round so I get a little pulsation when braking hard. Might call around to see if someone can turn the hub with the laced rim intact. The rear works very well and I'm able to use it in conjunction with the front for pretty effective balanced braking. Never kept track of time involved on everything, too much to the point of being "obsessed" probably  ;)

Good luck. I have the same issue with my front brake. The hub is slightly out of round. I'm in Chicagoland and have had no luck finding someone to turn my drum.

Yes I have a feeling I'll get the same results as you when calling around. I have given thought to somehow solidly mounting the axle/wheel assembly on a fabricated stand and perhaps using an improvised mounted cutter to cut the drum in minute increments as the wheel is rotated, just more backwoods, shade-tree mechanics  ::)
