F1 48 thru 52 spindles on a 37 thru 41 axle

Hey does anyone up here know for sure if a set of F1 48 thru 52 spindles will fit on a 37 thru 41 car axle? The thickness of the king pin boss is the same but I'm worried if there will be an inclination angel issue.

Thanks
Chris

supposed to fit.

Everything i've read says they are supposed to fit. I have an f 1 axle with brakes and an extra set of F 1 spindles, I haven't tried to put them together. the stock truck steering arms are Quite a bit different than the car parts I;ve read on the HAMB site about using later drum brake parts to have self adjusters, I think the F1 brakes are similar to the late 40's lincoln brakes The hamb had a list of "modern" drum brake part numbers.

I wont be using the stock steering arms. I'm going to cut them off and grind the area where they were nice and neat and then I will use longer backing plate bolts and after market arms.
