2old2fast Look on the frt where the center section bolts to the housing , you may get lucky & the factory tag will still be there, then you can decode. 8" ford were used up until '79 , mustang II, granada, pinto , bobcat, monarch..

the pic of the back view looks like mine.. 8".. measure between the backing plates... mine is 54" and it came out of a 67 mustang.. ck the axle housing too... if they taper down it'll be a 64 to 66.. they changed to the same size tube in 67.. now there may be some cross over in the 67 yr.. but u'd be mustang, mavrick, falcon...

Ford 8 Inch which drum brakes? (41 ford)

Hello there I am working on fixing my Dad's 41 ford. The brakes were seized its been parked for years so after some beating I finally got the drum off. Pretty positive its an 8 inch and am trying to figure out which drum I need to get maybe someone can identify?

Drum is 12.5 inches total width. 10 1/2 inch pads

Pictures maybe can help?
