    Does the dust cap screw in or knok on? I dont recognise the 3 wheel locaters around the hub.

  4. There at the shop. So not going there till the weekend. Backing plates and brakes, shoes and bearing are same as 40-47. They fit my 47 spindles. Back of drums are solid just studs. I think I'm going to use them. they look cool. Just wanted to know what they are off of.
  5. Post this on fordbarn.
  6. Here,s a pair in their natural environment. Early 1940 i believe. Don,t see them to often.

    Hey keith27T,
    I have one as well, never really was certain what these came off and for what year. This fits Ford really well and felt that it's EARLY 1940 Ford.
    Of course my drum is the rear hub/drum.
    The one I have is nice shape and the run out is 12.060 inch and true. The '29 Ford A axle and '33 Ford axle, that I have and tried, both sit well with the axle key. And leaves ample room for the long axle nut.
    Are you truly planning on keeping what you have, or would you like one other?
    These seem hard to find. S2
    :) pm me either way
