    Hi try that wheel with the drum actuator on the other side, if you are not getting enuf braking power, it looks like a Worksman to me.

    Thanks Mike. I mounted it that way because it appeared that the wheel rotation would help to keep the brake-side bearing retainer tight. Brake side bearing retainer seemed to loosen with the brake mounted on the other side. The retainer is followed by a slotted washer and then a lock nut.
    This is the first time I have tinkered with this kind of brake so I'm open to mounting suggestions.
