I an in the process of installing a lincon versaie/ granada disc brake rear end in a 51 chev, my problem is that I have had the rearend for quite a while ,[ torn apart] and now that I have to put it back together, I'm confused, and I am hoping that none of the parts were lost,
I have serched the archives for a parts list or preferably a illustration of the brake assembly, any help will be greatly appreciated,, Thanks Bill

Talking You Are Very Observant...

FORD uses what are called generalized illustrations in their parts systems, i.e. the illustration you are seeing here actually is the same illustration you would see if you looked for details say on a '78 BIRD. FORD also did not go to CD until 1980 and anything before that was either on microfiche or paper. A service manual illustration would actually give you more detail than a parts illustration.

There was a very slight parts upgrade in 1977. For the most part, everything will basically interchange. Aftermarket may call for the same pads throughout the design years whereas FORD may have had different sets for noise/warranty claims whatever.

If you have trouble sourcing QUALITY aftermarkets pads and small parts kits, either matchup what you have or if the rear I.D. tag is still there, you can identify what year rear you have.

Now this all being said and me frightening you, what you see is the basic design for what you are working on.




If you will further notice, the illustration is entitled Brake Asm-Drum Rear...

The illustration is most likely early production, i.e. 75/75 GARANADA/MONARCH and the small differences after that didn't require an illustration update as the design was for the most part the same.

This same basic design was also used on FORD/TBIRD and LINC-MERC of that era. The next system was that used on CONTINENTALS, MARKS and SVO MUSTANG/TURBOCOUPE.

Just make sure you use quality aftermarket on it and no CHI-COM and it will do you nicely.

And thanx for the kind words...
