    Will backing plates & drums from a ford pickup fit on an early bronco rear (small bearing) Bronco plates seem to be like hens teeth. Thanks

    small bearing is 2.00 x 3.25. My recollection was there are 2 big bearing styles but only 1 small bearing pattern. You can verify on Moser site
  3. Small bearing backing plates fit small bearing rears and large bearing backing plates fit large bearing rears.

    I should mention that trucks came both ways small or large bearing and if you scrounge you can even find the big brakes on small bearing rears.

    If it is a small bearing rear, you can use them off a Ford 8" rear.

    Maverick, Granada, and similar used mostly 10X1.75 brakes on 8" rears which will bolt right up to a small bearing 9". They are 5x4.5 on the bolt pattern on the drums, though, so you can use the backing plates but you can't use the drums if you want the larger pattern.

    Many 8.8" rears also used the common small bearing pattern with 10" and 11" drums, like the "Panther" platform late '70s-up Lincoln Town Car/Crown Vic/Grand Marquis.
  7. X2, look for 8-inch rear brakes, the bearing ends on 8-inch are same as 9-inch small bearing.
  8. Off MOST 8". Ford made some odd ball 8" rears.

    I had a 1971 ford pick up small bearing housing with the big 5 1/2" drums. It was an original 302 2 barrel automatic long box truck.
