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

Does the 12 x 2" backing plate fit a model A spindles and axles? Can I use my current 17" wire wheels?

Use of the 37-48 backing plates on your Model A spindles requires use of adapter kit number 91631928 and also the elongation of the holes in the backing plate to match the smaller bolt pattern on the A spindles which is 3 1/16 verses 3 3/8”. Along with the front backing plates the front hubs number 91065454 and the bearings are required and also the drums for proper fit and then the original wheels should work. On the rear the E brake version is available but we regret that the backing plate assemblies are NOT a direct bolt up. If using the original rear end the backing plate and the drums can be used but for limited problems we suggest contacting MT Brakes for the necessary adapters, spacers, hubs, etc. In some cases the hubs offered by Speedway do not provide the correct spacing to mate with the MT components.
