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 have provisions for an emergency brake cable. 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"-24 IFF
    • To connect an AN 3 hose, use (2) of 910-318-7/16"
    • To connect a 3/16" steel line, use (2) of 910-3183-7/16"
  • Bolt Pattern:  3-3/8" center to center both horizontal and vertically
  • Use with park brake cables typical of '39-'48 Ford passenger cars

Don't get if you have an "A".

May 27, 2013
Contrary to what the previous reviewer stated, these are NOT easily modified to fit an A's rear axle. There is a flat in the backing plate that hits the spring perch. Either the backing plate would have to be extensively cut out -- and I'm not sure the wheel cylinder would then fit -- or the spring perch would have to be significantly ground down, weakening it. Can't see how you can get it to work on an A. I ordered these because the reviewer stated they can easily be modified to fit an A. My bad. I have to send them back on my nickle. In Speedway's defense the catalog does not specifically say they will fit an A -- but it is assumed by where it is located in the catalog.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Can I use original 38 drum/hub with these backing plates?

March 11, 2012

Can I use original 38 drum/hub with these backing plates?

Answers

There are some variations of the early drums and hubs and in some cases for correct backing plate clearance the inner lip of the drum may require some machine work to lessen the inward width. In doing so the two inch shoes may not match the wear surface machined on your original drums and we would suggest the 1 ¾” shoes. Bolt pattern for the 38 spindles is correct and you may need to grind the top of the spindle to allow clearance for the inward bulge in the backing plates to accommodate the wheel cylinder. These kits come with components for 12” brakes.

Thank you for your interest in our 1937-48 Ford Rear Brake Backing Plates w/ E-Brake, Item #: 91065430. These are designed to fit the 1937 thru 1948 Ford hubs or housings, and 1935 Ford hubs will not work due to interference issues.
