Default Need new brakes

I have the old donut style warner brakes on my trailer and it is time to replace them with something modern. I want to keep my old drums. I noticed that the disk inside of the drum is segmented instead if a solid ring like I see in most pictures. Will a new type magnet work with my segmented ring?

The segments won't be a problem as much as the location of the surface. Newer brakes have the magnet located further out from the center. And the bolt pattern for the backing plate may be different on the newer brakes. Take one of your backing plates to a good trailer dealer and they can help you decide on your best option. Good luck!

I didn't even think about the diameter of the surface that the magnet rubs on. More research is required. My dad may have fugured out a way to get more life out of the old magnets as well.

I'm back to the same problem. I think one of my magnets died and they cannont be replaced. Has anyone tried to install new brakes with these old hubs.
