356b T5 Brake Drums

Looking for new 1960 356b brake drums, front and rear. Old ones are beyond restoration. Anyone know a good contact for new?

If you contact the 356 Registry in the USA I think they can point you in the right direction because they are being remanufactured in the USA and possible Germany. Useful to check the value of the equity in your house before you invest!!  Phil

Have your tried?
 
-Roger Bray
 
-PRS Service
 
-Karman Konnections
 
Also try your Local Porsche Centre, they will be able to order.  Ordering from US could result in you having to pay import duties
 
 

Enjoy your Cars and Club

I bought refurbished drums from/through Martin Willis at The Machine Shop in Colorado Springs. 719 330 0085. http://mwthemachineshop.com   Shipped them to UK no problem. They were excellent. I ended up going there because although the usual suspects in UK - Bray, PR etc were most helpful, as they always are, they just didn't have the correct drums available.
Its a pity no one in UK appears to refurbish the drums, at least for a "competitive" price. They were still cheaper from the US even with the duty. Still, that was about two years ago.

Thanks Phil,
Have had to bite the bullet and purchase new ones. Numerous second hand ones about, but all seem to be affected by the same problems. Appreciate your reply!

Thanks for this. Just replied to Phil, before I saw your post. I ended up with new. If I do another 356 I'll try these guys. Many thanks.

I can see the last post was 12/2015. I'm amazed no-one has made a gig and span them up on a lathe if there is still some "meat on the bone".  My 1962 356B drums need doing. I'm on the Wrexham Industrial Estate and we have some superb engineering companies here. I will see if someone will make the gig for me. Out comes the credit card again!

Try Crosthwaite & Gardiner:

I believe they have refurbed 356 drums in the past
Good luck
