OK - thinking cap time and at least a two part (or more)

Pre discs, there were two generally recognized braking systems. They were often named __________ and ___________. They are called a couple other names as well and those answers might be accepted (they will be) too

Ford used the one style until____________ but Chrysler went on and used it until _____________ .

If you know the difference and post a brief blurb, points will be added to your score

"Self energizing" and "Fixed"? Something like that.

The slelf energizing has the shorter shoe on the front and as the brakes hit the drum they rotate a little forcing the shoes to create even more friction. The "fixed" simply move in and out rubbing on the drums.

Brian - self energizing is correct and both definitions are basically correct.

Richard, that's a name for Brian's second definition.

There are a couple of other terms I'd like to see and the way I was taught at my Auto Tech school, but will give the names if the dates of the second half of my questions are answered. That's what I thought would be the easy part

Ford used the fixed anchor up until 49, but I believe it may have been on the truck in 48. The Chrysler used it until 56?

By the way that is why the Lincoln brake was so popular with early Fords. The Bendix self energizing brakes where used on the Lincoln and the backing plate was a bolt on to the Ford.

I had to "Geezer" (old man Google) that with a phone call to by brother.

Brian - close enough.

Ford used the center plane, also called Lockheed brakes through the 1948 automobile model year. Chrysler, and I also recalled 1956 for them, but it turns out that they didn't change over some cars in their line (Imperial and 300) until 1963. I detested working on their Lockheeds with double wheel cylinders. The 1964's - even the 'lowly' Plymouth finally had the Bendix design - I had a my single MoPar, a 1964 Plymouth Fury and do recall doing a brake job on it

Your turn.

What do these two cars have in common? There is a very cool connection, what is it?

Was he the builder of both cars? I know he was famed for interior work and
his name is on the dragster, and that he built several very nice cars over the
years. Jim

He was the driver of the drag car, don't know how much building he did. On the "Infiniti Flyer" he did the upholstery. It won America's Most beautiful Roadster in 1994(?)

It's your floor.

No one?

Martin had 1/2 the answer- and the A/D trucks are part of both ends. the
1947 truck year was the last of the resumed production after the war- and
the new design was rolled out in May of 47, thus the ones prior to that were
a "first series".

Additionally Chevy made the 1988 trucks a new design , but kept the old design in heavy duty trucks as well as Suburbans and Blazers.

Martin- you get the floor.
