Webb Wheel releases new brake drum to aftermarket

Webb Wheel Products Inc. Aftermarket Business Unit has released a new brake drum, part number 66855B.

The 66855B brake drum will fit most applications where a 66854B brake drum is used, with the exception of a limited number of school bus applications where the machined oil groove is required.
