Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

Finding good brake drums for PVs is difficult. New Volvo drums are available but quite pricy. A friend of mine is looking for rear drums for a 64 544. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any direct interchanges for any of the 444 544 drums and, if anyone has drums for sale, or anyone knows of a US based rebuilder for the 444/544 drums.

What prices! Are these gold-plated?

Here is the cheapest deal new...

...which is listed on this page...

The drum is also available rebuilt but without the hub...

Core charges and shipping would kill an overseas order...

You can play around on the links to see what PV models use hub 673797 which fits the '64 544 rear.

That same hub is found on other Volvo RWD models.

Let us say you have $200 in your pocket and approach a nearby competent machine shop with all four hubs/drums from the '64 544 and make a deal to re-sleeve the drums.

Next thing you know your work shop is full of reconditioned drums and you are getting rich on eBay!
