Ok, I was able to get some 1/4" ID asphalt covered wiring loom and it worked great. Just a little more tweeking of the bends and another fitting and it will be ready to go.

Thanks for the help

Kevin can you describe what ‘warped’ means? Perhaps the NAPA technician that observed the drum/hub on the lathe could be helpful. Now that you’re all ‘buttoned-up’ with respect to the bearings, you could mount the drum/hub, and spin the drum to assess the radial/axial ‘run-out’ if it exists.

I think for at least in the short term you will be reinstalling what you have and get the car back home. The question then becomes which set of shoes should be installed while you hunt for a replacement drum/hub. Also just because you know that at some point in time that side will be disassembled do not skimp on the guidance pertaining to proper torqueing of the axle nut.

I can’t believe there isn’t a new drum part number out there that after some machining could be riveted/bolted to the Packard hub.

You maybe way past this project already. My 110 has a banjo wheel with a horn ring. Problem I encountered was the gasket that insulated the ring from the grounded hub was basically crumbling. Caused horn to go off in the middle of night and fun stuff like that. Anyway I replaced that gasket with two plumbing gaskets from Home Depot. One is foam like material the other is thinner harder rubber. The combo was perfect for compression feel to engage horn from the ring. My cap was starting to get a crack so I put a thick layer of epoxy on the underside to get some more years out of it.

Foam went on first then rubber. It all comes apart with three screws from the bottom of steering wheel.

Looks like the drums for the Panama with 12" brakes are specific to only that model. My chances of finding replacements are slim. Can warped drums still be used?
