Help to identify brake shoes for 1987 Fruehauf equipment trailer
Print Topic | Close Window

I just bought a 1987 22 ft equipment trailer which as it turns out all brakes are wore down completely. I have tried a few places both local and online and cant identify or find a replacement part which means this trailer may be worthless. There is no vin that i can locate on the unit and the title if even accurate to this trailer only lists 1HM055801 as the vin

The drum has an inside diameter is 12"and has a surface engraving indicating max drum size of 12.39
the hub has both inside and outside bearings
The old shoes look to be about 4 and7/8 " wide and about 11" long

I have attached a few pictures in the hopes that someone can point me in any direction to by shoes or even rebuild these somehow to get this trailer going. Any help would be greatly appreciated

You could check with a heavy brake shop to see if they could bond on new linings.
