Which is this Coxhead 153 FX/ FJ Holden Brake Drum Removal Tool.
I got it from an eBay Australia listing and had it sent over.
It was in very good condition for a tool that is probably all of 50 – 60 years old – just a bit of work with a wire brush and cleaning of the internal tread and it is as good as new.

changed due to different race size in this model.
On the wide spring models a late (55-56) FJ banjo is used and fitted with FE-FC axles, breaking plates, retainers, etc, these having the same brake lining size, springs and leaver action shocks, these mounts must be fitted to the appropriate banjo being used, care is to be taken to maintain correct pinion angle.
