Forget about problems with stripped brake hubs on your E-Z-GO. Ausco has developed an upgrade kit which is much harder than the standard factory hub/drum combination resulting in much longer life and is far less likely to experience the stripping issues as with factory units. The brake hub/drum upgrade kit by Ausco is designed for 2 cycle gas E-Z-GO golf cars, personnel carriers, and small wheel utility trucks made from from 1982-94, as well as electric vehicles from 1992-Up (not RXV). This kit replaces the standard hub/drum combination with a separate hardened hub and drum. Click on the picture to see the parts mated together.
Replaces E-Z-GO Part # 19186-G1
This hub/drum also will fit the E-Z-GO electric 4 seater personnel carriers (Liberty, PCX4, 4 Caddy & TXT 2+2) and utility trucks (800 [both the earlier 2-cycle gas 800 and the later Industrial & Turf 800 electric] and the WorkHorse & MPT models 1000E). This also includes the Cushman Commander 2100 electric truck, the Jacobson 1110 electric Hauler. It also fits on many other golf car brands that have the same Dana H-12 electric differential such as Columbia ParCar, Hyundai (gas & electric) and Melex but not Yamaha.
In the early 80's E-Z-GO used an axle hub with a separate brake drum that slides over the brake shoes & hub. This two piece hub/drum is suitable to replace the early hub & drum, if they have the star spline described above. Some of the very early 80s cars had a separate hub that employed a straight key rather than the star spline. This hub/drum will NOT work with keyed axle/hub interface.
