brake drum

You are here

  • noun
    A broad, very short cylinder attached to a wheel, against which the brake shoes press in a drum brake. (This is particularly troubling because the recalls affect a combined total of over 351,000 vehicles, including 260,390 in which there is a possibility of rear wheel and brake drum assemblies separating from vehicles.)
