    The wagon has the 11" brakes - I believe they are Wagner? - that have the drums inboard of the hub and are not self adjusting. They work fine for now (probably because they are well adjusted and I hope to keep them that way), but I imagine at some point I might switch them over to the later Bendix 11" brakes with outboard drums and self-adjusters (common on the AMC era CJs etc - and which I currently use on my ecj5). Guessing the common Bendix will be easier and cheaper to maintain? Can these 11" Bendix brakes be run with oem style steel wheels (either 15" or 16")? thanks!

    Lockheed IIRC.

    The bendix drums have issues with oem riveted 15" wheels.
