    Name the Part?

    I need some help naming this part so I can buy a new one and the edging on the outside of the hub is all bent.

    I took of the rear brake drum to find a spring broke off.

    Also noticed that the edge around the wheel hub was all bent on one quarter of the hub.

    The edging sticks out from the hub and the rear drum fits into it. When the wheel turns the drum is rubbing against it.

    Am I right in call it the wheel hub.

    It the piece that the brake shoes and springs and brake cylinder is attached to.

    I am look for it on ebay and cant find it.

    Many thanks.

    Clive.

    Thats it in the Picture - the piece with the number 2 beside it.

    Thanks guys, thats a big help.

    I did try and straighten the edging so it wouldnt rub against the brake drum as the wheel or drum is turning, but I dont think am great and making a complete circle as its now grinding louder than before haha
