  1. I'll let you know if I get rid of them. Problem is that it's probably going to cost too much to convert all back to Ford this year. I did identify the spindles, they are Mopar for 1937-42 Dodge Plymouth Chrysler. Looking into repairing the drums now, unless I find a great disc kit for the mopar spindles
  2. I've been in email touch with Speedway Motor Techs. No one knows what it is in the tech department...
  3. Speedway only seems to do Chevy and Ford Spindles. I don't think that's what I have here, so I'm not sure where to go next.
  4. Hey Everyone, I'm hoping to get some help on this one. I got a 1923 Ford T-bucket that someone put what appears to be some classic Dodge Plymouth Chrysler front drum brakes on (probably from the 1937-40s). The brakes are ruined and I'm using this as an opportunity to convert to disc brake. Problem is that I'm not really positive on the drum and spindle. Anyone got any thoughts? Attached pictures of drum and spindle.

  6. Thanks. I'm looking into now. I've found a site called www.oldmoparts.com. I'm hoping they can provide some help. The spindles are what still concern me. I'm not sure how critical it is to know exactly what they are in order to do the brake conversion.
  7. I looked up Lockheed and the brakes used in a 1937 Dodge. It's exciting to see that they're a match with my brakes. Thank you for helping with that! So are the spindles Chyrsler? It does seem to match with Mopar. So in attempting to convert this to disc, can I use these spindles and does anyone know where to find a good kit for it? I'm worried that I may have to get new spindles. According to the previous owner, the front axle is from a 28-24 Ford and the King Pins are from 63 Econaline Van.
  8. Good day to all, So I'm replacing drum brakes off of my t-bucket. I started by trying to redo the wheel cylinders and brake shoes, but quickly realized the brakes are not off a Ford (The seller must not have known a thing because he said they were 1940 Ford Truck). The shoes measured 10" by 2" which Ford never made. It didn't matter too much to me because the amount of money it cost to repair the drums was too close to buying a kit from speedway for disc brakes. Sadly, the spindle appears to be just as much of a mystery as the drum brake. Well, I've shown the spindle to all the locals, and no one knows. I'm hoping someone on here can give me an idea of what spindle I have. Extra points if anyone knows what the drums are. See attached pictures!
