My cousin recently bought a heavy equipment trailer. It's rated 29,000 lbs, but he only registered it at 14 or 16,000 (I don't exactly remember) because he won't be moving anything bigger then that.
The trailer is equipted with air brakes. We need to convert to electric brakes. The problem is that the drums do not have the flat surface for the magnet to make the needed contact.
In the pic below, you can see inside the drum,,,,,,,,, there seems to be a raised ring with 9 threaded holes. The only reason we can think of these holes being there, is for a plate/disc to be mounted in order to be able to use the drum for the electric brakes.
We can have plates/disc made at a local shop, but was wondering if there would be a companydistributor that would already have such a thing. I can't find anything on the web,,, and maybe because I really don't know what I'm searching for and I thought why not come here and askthe gurus
I circled a few of the holes to better point them out,,,,, there are 9 holes total. The drum size is "12 1/4.
