Good afternoon, first post on HMFV.

We have a fractured brake drum on a Rapier Sankey 1-Ton FV2410 trailer and need a new single brake drum.

Brake Drum Part No. FV654540 NATO (NSN) 2530-99-810-5102.

Where on earth to start looking? It seems an impossible task to find one.

Has anyone got a spare for sale, please?

Thank you for looking.

Located in South Derbyshire.

Thanks for replying.

It is a Sankey trailer with their rating plate detailed on the side but was they were 'beefed' up to 1-ton for the Rapier setup. The part number for 'all the other' Sankey units is different to the Rapier one 😞

The axle-end, bearing and brakes are all uprated hence a very rare part to try and find. I'll keep looking.

Cheers for now.

No we never got to the bottom of this and no suitable part was ever found.

Assuming you are not a police officer 😆 we did the following .............. fitted a spacer where the hub should have gone and locked the brakes on the trailer so they could not be engaged. As it is a show piece and towed behind a 101 we decided we could live with it like that until a part ever appeared!

Not ideal I know but my brother has no budget to re-engineer the hubs as some have done.

Not much help sorry. Good luck.
