Converting the HADCO Backing Plate to Electric
This is the Dexter 12×2 AL-KO Loaded Backing Plates that you need for the conversion. All of the guts and holes are in the right place , but the actual backing plate is 1/2″ too small in diameter to mate with the HADCO hub. This is A RH brake.
Drilling the alignment holes in the HADCO plate for the Dexter pivot plate. If I had to do this again, I’d have used a 1/4″ carbide rotary bit in my high speed to elongate the holes, as they half intersected the old HADCO holes.
Too bad I threw it all away 3 years later. Oh well, it was good experience.
