06/01/2016 The EK drum won’t fit on the EH axle due to the outer raised section fouling the backing plate however the EH drum appears to fit the EK backing plate with extra clearance.
In fact I have what appears to be an EH drum on an EK front axle in my pile of spares.
EK drums will fit FE – EK brakes.
This fits with GMH retro-fit parts logic and.
13/01/2018 FE-FC brake shoes are 1-1/2″ wide; FB- EK brakes shoes are 1-3/4″ wide.
The ribbed-versus-plain brake drum issue is a live one – the family’s EK had ribbed drums on the front and plain drums on the rear.
I remember that the front drums also had the little “tang” on them to locate in a counterbored hole in the hub.
03/02/2017 HD-HR drums wont fit FB- EK.
HD HR rims will fit over FB- EK Drums.
HD-HR disc rims have a slightly different offset for caliper clearance.
These rims from memory are identified by a small approx.
1 x 3/16″ hole in the mounting face.
I am dubious though about FE- EK rims fitting EJ-EH.
I cant remember if they were flat faced drum or not.
04/02/2017 I also remember now asking DBA about machining the width down on a EH brake drum due to the different offset with the backing plates.
They wouldn’t guarantee their new EH drums after doing this I asked about them doing a run of FB/ EK drums.
I needed a 200 drum order commitment for them to do the run, didn’t get one taker when I put it out there.
19/02/2017 Craig, these EH brake drums are available from a number of sources via ebay, just go to “EH brake drums ” and scroll.
Your nearest source would probably be ‘clutchandbrakeonline” who are based in Gosford.
Another source is “empoweredautoparts” I got mine from Sunbury Brake and clutch in Melbourne.
The part number is RDA6780.
