No, the WL and WLA are the same, the WLC are Big Twin Type.

Re: wl/wla/wlc front brake

Well my frame is HD 45, my engine is a WLC but my front brake/drum are NOT . Looks like a WLA version The linings are roughly 1'' and the shoes are seriously not as "bulky" as the one i originaly got on ebay. The lining on them right now have been re-riveted and the hole didn't even fricken lined up do i have like 3-4 empty hole on the shoes I hate sloppy people." do it right the first f**** time around" how hard is that to understand :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Re: wl/wla/wlc front brake

they are all equally useless, if that's any consolation...
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Re: wl/wla/wlc front brake

Well the re-lining of the front brake shoes is complete . Those NOS brake lining where the "cats ass". Can't beat original 70 years old parts. Quick question regarding the WLA brake drum . Is the speedo driven front wheel on a WLA. ??? Cause for sure looks like such item on the outside of the drum . Know your bike they say.... lollll

Re: wl/wla/wlc front brake

All 45 speedos drive off the rear wheel. the front wheel has a stabilizer assembly on the backing plate, no speedo drive. Where is your parts book? :roll:

Is your front brake drum bolted on to the hub, or a one peice hub laced in with the spokes.
Are your fork rockers inboard or outboard.

Re: wl/wla/wlc front brake

My Hub is bolted and my rockers are sitting on outside of fork. I did have a look at my manual and parts catalogs and i was wrong what i was looking at is not a speedo drive. my bad. My speedo is correct and is driven by the rear wheel. My rear brake are also the correct type. It was fun to wrench on my old girl today Had been a long while .I replaced the rear brakes and seat bushing plus i added a spring on my seat post ( due to the increase of my fat ass lolll) ,she's so reliable that other then adjust the chain and adjust the valves she's been plain awesome
