Additional Information
Set for 1909-1925 includes a pair of new, large outer drums (11-3/4" diameter) that are used in conjunction with original stock drum for more braking power. They are self energizing and really stop a Model T.
American made.
These braking systems are located on the rear hubs and are activated by only slight pressure on the brake pedal.
They come with an equalizer, which mounts on the emergency brake controller shaft. The equalizer is designed to allow you to engage the accessory brakes when you either push down on the brake pedal or pull back on the emergency brake handle.
Also included is a NEW EZ-ADJUST SLIDER! A sliding clevis, complete with a spring that attaches to the brake pedal and eliminates the fine line of adjustment between neutral and braking. Also with this new slider the brake pedal will no longer move upon application of parking brake.
Comes with the correct size brake rods, (the rod that connects the equalizer to the brakes).
Shipped assembled, directions included.

*Requires an extension welded to your original pedal or you can purchase an optional brake pedal and shaft assembly which make it easier to install this brake set. Part numbers are:

IMPORTANT: This bake system can NOT be used on T's equipped with Hassler Shock Absorber sets.

Questions and Answers
I've read that rocky mountain brakes (the modern reproductions) do a great job of stopping while you are going forward, but do a poor job of stopping in reverse. Is this true?
 They are a self energizing brake so they do stop god going forward but not going backward. They are also not t ogood wet either. My father has them on two of his cars. But we make sure the cars still use the brake in the trasmission with the rocky mountains so that there is still some break in reverse and when it rains. There has been a few ocations when Model T's stop at a stop sign at the top of a hill and cant keep them self from rolling back down it wih the rockys on them.
