I have a complete juice brake setup, mounted on a wheel. I also have a mechanical drum. I like the rounded look of the mechanical, but would like hydraulic brakes. Can I mix the two?
The mech. drum and juice plate I want to mate:

The drum that is on my wheel:


Will this mech. drum bolt to my hub? Will I have bearing issues?

In your case, definitely won't work. Your drum, a '67-'72 model carries the drive side wheel bearings. The mechanical drum has no provision for bearings.

Also, the mechanical drums are stamped, where all but the very first drums for hydraulic brakes are cast. HD only used the stamped juice drum for the first part of the '58 production run. I'm sure they changed for a reason.
