Brake

I just purchased a 1952 Dodge Wayfarer Coupe and found the right passenger brake drum is cracked. Can't seem to find a replacement, but what I am really looking for is a disk brake conversion kit.
HELP

I do not think you will find any bolt on conversion kits, unless the brake system is shared by another model and year as your car, manufacture specific. That said the good news is cars of that era usually had a year 10 run before any major changes were made. Nun the less you will have to the research it will not be something welwood or bear will offer as a kit.

On the drum angle you could take the measurements and maybe come up with a replacement part. Diameter of course, the brake shoe contact area/ with, and the axle hole, lug nut pattern understood . Welcome to a great hobby and get ready to learn .
