Help Needed: Can you Identify the Brake Drums I need?

It has been some time since I have worked on the project and I need your help.

My Rear Axle is a ford 8 with 28 splined Axles, 10 Inch Drums, 1 3/4" Wide Brake Shoes, 4.25 Stud to Stud.

The problem I have is with the Hole in the center of the Drums, my axle has a pilot of 2 3/4" and all I can find is much smaller options. The local parts supplier wants a part number to look it up, and will not look through the boxes for me.

Anyone have an old parts book that includes this data, or maybe you already know the answer.

Thank you,

Bud

8 and light duty 9 have the same axles and bearings, 28 spline and 57 1/2 inches wheel to wheel. 5 bolts on 4 1/2 circle. (Measure outside of one stud to center of the SECOND stud= 4 1/2)

The center hole changed between the 62-65 Fairlanes and the 75-80 Granadas. Both wore 10 x 1 3/4 shoes. Fairlanes 66-71 had 8" also.

Can't remember which is which on hole size. I think the early Fairlane was the small one, because we used to put 64 Dodge wheels on the 63 Fairlane, but not viceversa.

You could try searching through the rockauto.com database,
look for Ford vehicles that would have had the 8", then go with
the smallest engine option...

The 63 Fairlane has the 1 3/4 x 10 brakes with the small hole axles. I just looked at 2 pm. But did not have ruler with me to measure. Have later wheels on it with bigger hole, custom wheels don't reach hole either so never paid any attention to them.

Thanks For the Help......

Thanks for all the replies......

based on the direction you all gave me I will be looking at Raybestos Part Number 2671 on Monday, this is the drum P/N for the 75-80 Granada.

I had purchased Raybestos P/N 2623 wich had the small 2 1/4" Center Hole and the 4.50 Bolt Pattern. This P/N shows to be for the 63-68 Ford Fairlane.

The Rockauto.com web site was a great lead, and will be helpful for my current project as well as a great FYI to pass along.

Again Thanks for all the help...
