Weight on rear drum
#1
Hello everyone, I am currently in the process of redoing all of the brakes on our stang and noticed one of the weights was broken off of one of the rear drums, is this going to be an issue? do I need to buy a new drum, weld a weight on comparable in size to the other side? what, to do, thanks.

Rear brake drum is heavy rotating mass and there will be a vibration if unbalanced.

I would get a replacement drum...cheap enough (check Rock Auto) then no worries.

Good Luck

That's kind of what I thought but didn't want to hear.

If Ford didn't think it would have been a problem without it, they would not have spent the 25 cents it cost to put it there.
