45mm square mechanical drum braked kit to suit 9″ drums. Suits 2000kg override couplings — single Axle rating 1450kg.
The rating of this axle is 1450kg as this axle uses Ford Slimline bearings. Axle rating is controlled by bearing sizes.
9″ mechanically braked axles are very simple to install. Attached the mechanical backing plates to a weld ring, welded to the rear of the axle shoulder.
Mechanical weld rings are identical to electric weld rings. The hardest part of the entire job is to align the weld rings perfectly.
We recommend customers dry-fit the backing plates and brake mounts, without grease. Once the hub drum is in position and locked with the axle nut, tighten the brake shoes.
Align the brake backing plate perfectly with the drum and then spot weld the ring in 4 places. Re-adjust where necessary and then finished the welding on the ring.
