    Here is a of brake part numbers for 1939-1948 Ford cars that can be found at your local auto parts store. No more blank stares when you ask for these parts. Just give the guy/gal/pimpled face kid, behind the counter the part number!

    1939-1948 Right rear wheel cylinder CarQuest/EIS # EW156003
    1942-1948 Left front wheel cylinder CarQuest/EIS # EW156000

    1939-1941 Front wheel cylinder repair kit CarQuest/EIS # C552
    1942-1948 Front wheel cylinder repair kit CarQuest/EIS # C568
    1939-1948 Rear wheel cylinder repair kit CarQuest/EIS # C554
    1939-1948 Front brake hose CarQuest/EIS # SP296
    1939-1948 New brake master cylinder CarQuest/EIS # E1050
    1939-1948 Brake master cylinder repair kit CarQuest/EIS # M16
    1939-1942 Front and rear brake shoes Raybestos # 38PG(premium quality) or 38RP(Standard quality)
    1946-1948 Front and rear brake shoes Raybestos # 37PG(premium quality) or 37RP(standard quality)

    That's all I found for now. I'm still trying to match up springs and other items for part numbers. Let me know if you need any help.

    Anything for the 39/40 merc? or are they the same (not sure, though it seems alot of the parts are not compatible). Or for the merc side of the house with the years listed. Thanks

    Saved to my tech folder. Thanks DMarv that's a huge help for everyone.
  7. does anyone know the differences in brake shoes between the years given? 39 to 48. i got stupid looks all day long, and mostly from stupid looking people. im going tru the brakes on a bucket-t with 39 - 48 juice brakes. rebuilt the cylinders, shoes are good all but one wheel. the mounting holes on the bottom are kindof a double-d with an adapter to a round stud. whit

    Thanks Dan!
  9. You have 46/48 brakes.They have a cam that self centers the shoe. 39/42 have a bolt with a locknut on the lower outside of the backing plate that you adjust to center the shoe. By the way, this is done when instaling new shoes and never touched again. The only adjusting needed from there on is the upper spring loaded bolt (3/4 in.) to adjust shoe clearence for wear.

    I've checked availability on all items. Wheel cylinders, kits, and master cylinders are no problem to get. Brake shoes are hit and miss with Raybestos. Sometimes they have them and sometimes they don't. It really depends on cores available to them to reline. Prices vary on the items. Wheel cylinders and master cylinder seem pricey to me, but I haven't checked with Kanters, Sac Vintage, or other specialty parts houses on their prices. I do know that all of the CarQuest parts are made in the USA, which may increase prices. Also, in the traditional parts houses, movement of the item also plays a part in pricing. Since these parts are not "hot" movers the price can be higher from the manufacturer to the warehouse distributors. Pricing margains should be the same from WD to Jobber and from Jobber to customer (from most stores), some stores use velocity pricing which would increase the price of slow moving numbers. Since the initial cost is higher at the manufacturer, everyone down the line would be higher.

    Timken has all the front wheel bearing and races listed on their website. They use the old Ford part numbers for their part numbers:D

  23. OK I must be dumb! I am building a model a bla bla bla. I bought 1928-48 Ford Forged Spindles from Speedway Motors and now I am looking for a brake combo that is affordable, is there such a thing? I have looked for disk set up but cant seem to find any that fit, and the drum kits seem to be very pricey? any help would be great.
  24. Screw the discs, you can get a '40 Ford drum setup used for under $200, speedway sells the adapter rings and spacers for like $20, and a little welding and drilling, you're all set. Here's some info from the Tech Archive.
    Another way of doing it:
    If you really want to be a badass, get some Lincolns, or some Buick finned aluminum drums.
  25. I would like to use the Lincolns or the Buick, but too much for my broke ass
  26. Thanks Dan, your post means no more looking and no more two-wheeled braking for my 31.

    Actually I think it's the other way around. every ford front end I've taken apart had timken bearings in it. I think that's what came in em.

    39-41 Ford Passenger & Pickup and Mercury Passenger cars share the same brake parts. The 39-41 Brake shoes have a round hole in the brake shoes.

    42-48 Ford and Mercury Passenger and 42-47 Ford Pickup share the same brake parts. The 42-48 Pass & 42-47 Pickup brake shoes have a hole with two flat sides and 2 round sides.

    Fords and Mercurys used Timken bearings as OEM equipment, BUT original bearing have Ford part numbers on them. Replacements have Timken numbers.
