Q & A

What's in the Box

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.
  3. Wheel cylinders will need an O-ring or a sealing washer as they are not IFF fittings. If using with Model A or B spindles, the four bolt holes will have to be elongated inward to fit that narrower bolt pattern. We recommend using a 916-31928 adapter ring for this application.
