MG TD TF 1500 - Brake Drums - Relined

Maybe there is hope for brake drums on T-series cars with disk wheels. (This has already been posted and discussed.)

This company relines brake drums. Don't know any thing about them. They list Triumphs, so I suppose that they could do MGs.

Lonnie, that sounds very promising, be nice for guys that are in a pickle with worn out drums! PJ

Did you see the Bang The Drum page.

The tag on the card says 1950 MkII but the picture is a different MG.

I will let those in the know tell us what it is.

JG Relining also replaces material on shoes and arcs the shoes.

Bruce. When I go to Bang the drum page I do not see any MG info at all.

The M.G. is an M-Type.
Steve Simmons

I'm confused (nothing unusual there). We were at J G Relining and all of a sudden we're talking about "Bang The Drum." What (where) is Bang The Drum?

J. K. Chapin

"Bang the Drum" is the title of the page on J&G Relining web site where they show photographs of previous work.

The M-type shown is that of Reinout Vogt, previously an Illinois resident.

Would oversized linings machined to suit oversized drums solve the problem? Cheers

Just checked with the local mechanic who confirms this is pretty straightforward. No need to toss skimmed drums just get oversized linings machined to suit. Cheers
