1952 Special brake shoes

Recommended Posts

I’m in the process of replacing the brake system on my 45R . The brake shoes I removed are the 1 3/4”,  I purchased some shoes from a local parts shop, they are 2 1/4”, the books show them to fit the 40 series vehicle, I can’t seem to get them to fit. What must I do?

They WILL NOT fit, of course....

    The correct brake shoes are ONLY 12" x 1 3/4" --- and are NOT available through the parts stores / chains..... The goods news for you, that means is that they ARE NOT Chineseum !!!!!!

    I have them --- your front & rear are the same brake shoes....
