Change from rod type band brake 30 years ago. The wire type servo brake was also at the home center, but the rod formula was only Monotaro. I had trouble removing the brake drum, but afterwards I could install it without problems. It seems that the braking power has improved slightly.
Maintenance of old rod type practical cars. Originally it was a band brake, but changed to a servo brake without "squeal". I am moved by the mass production of rod servo brake. Performance is also sufficient.
