last year I had the drums skimmed due to some uneven wear. When I measured them after the skim I noted that they were on their max diameter.
Today I removed them to do my diff repair and have noticed that the steel brake surface is getting cracks in it. (on both drums).
Proper Alfins are now expensive and I probably do not need that extra quality.
I see TRshop do what appears to be an all steel 'alfin' - do they work better than the standard drum
Can the original Alfins be relined - I would have thought not.
