No help from me.......

I purchased and installed a set from Barry Lobeck..........years and years ago when almost noboby wanted them. They were take-offs from a upgrading customers car.

I was NOT that impressed with them.

I went the the 53 - 56 F100 brakes. They are self-energizing and the old non Lincoln ones are not. The Buicks are 12" and the F100's are 11".

On my car (with fenders) you do not see the fins very well.........their best feature...





My car sits fairly LOW and you just could not see them well enough to not go to the better brakes.

I know discs are better but.....................then I would need a narrowed axle. And new wheels. Mine are stock 56 F100 on the front and they will NOT clear discs with a 5 on 5.5 pattern.

F-100 brake seals, what to use?

I too am assembling a car with '55 F-100 front brakes, a '29 Model A actually. I'm using 1938 ford spindles with the F-100 hub mounted to it, but I don't have the correct hub rear seals.

Would anybody know what seals to use?

I've asked around town, no good answers. Really need help.

Thanks, AJ
