Good Evening, I have an old Ben Hur with 28" wheels. The rear wheel spins almost a whole revolution before it stops. I was told here that you can add a shim to the inside to help it brake better. I'm over my head on this one. Anyone out there know how to do this?? Thank you, Mike

@oddball was working on these shims.
I’m not sure how far along he got, but you might send him a note, to see how it worked out.

Here is a picture of the old repair sleeve. Possibly you could build up the braking surface of the hub with a slice of tubing loctited on place. ND also made oversize brake assemblies to fix this problem.

what about copper plating several coats then if needed sand to fit the outside diameter ? ,i had an acquaintance who had some severely pitted bumper guards for a 1959 356 a porsche ,they were no longer being made so he had the fellow at the plate shop dip them about 10 times in copper he then sanded them flat on both sides with a block of wood and sheets of wet or dry <black sand paper> until he had the pits worked out this required several trips to the plate shop until he had all four of them perfect .they were then chrome plated and looked better than new .the plate shop owner told him how to do this but said it was too time consuming for them to do it .but that he could do it if he chose to hand block and finish contour them then he could get a nice job using just his labor
