What's in the Box

Info

If you want the early look but are reluctant to use old non-energizing drum brakes, we have just what you need. Our 100% new self-energizing backing plate assemblies come complete with shoes, wheel cylinders and hardware. Fits either the front or rear of 1937-48 Ford cars or 1937-47 Ford half-ton pickups with original style rear axle.

These brake assemblies can be used with Buick drums and 1948 Ford hubs, or we also offer new iron 12" x 2" brake drums (910-65400) with 5 on 5-1/2" bolt circle which are impossible to find elsewhere.

  • Wheel Cylinder Inlet: 7/16"-20 straight thread
    • NOT 7/16"-20 IFF
    • Inlet fitting will require a sealing washer or O-ring style fitting
  • Bolt Pattern: 3-3/8" center-to-center both horizontal and vertically
    • If using Model A or B spindles the holes will have to be elongated inward to fit the narrower bolt pattern
    • We recommend use of adapter rings 916-31928 to keep the spindle centered in the backing plate

 

Notes

  1. Spindle modification is necessary when installing these backing plates. Up to 1/4" of material may need to be removed on the top of the spindle.
  2. Our flat plate steering arms WILL NOT fit this backing plate.
