I've done this before with F1 brakes on 37-41 spindles without any problems. This was over 10 years ago on another car. Well now Im putting 53-56 F100 front drum brakes on my 32 coupe. At first, I had them installed on the wrong side and was able to bleed them fine. the wheel cylinders were level. only problem was the brake hoses were facing forward. I don't think that's right. I don't believe I've ever seen a car with the brake hoses facing toward the front. When I put the right backing plates on the right side and the left backing plates on the left side the wheel cylinders were tilted back(not level). Im unable to bleed the brakes, I think there's air trapped in the wheel cylinders now. Are the wheel cylinders supposed to be tilted back??? one backing plated is stamped with a 6 digit number then R. I assume this means right. The other the number is obscured. Can anyone clear this up for me?
