Technical 40's Ford brake drums

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by beantoad, Feb 8, 2020.

  1. I like to replace my rough '42 to '48 Ford front brake drums ( outside hub mount) with a nice pair of '40 (inside hub) drums .
    Are they a direct replacement ? or do they need to be modified ?
    Thanks

    40 drums don’t fit on 48 hubs. The whole assembly will interchange though.
     
  3. hoping to switch hubs and drums at once .
    Are the bearings the same ?
