What front hubs (brake drums) fit a 52 Ford pick-up

What 5x5 1/2 Ford front hubs (brake drums) will fit my 52 Ford F1 pick-up. I've got a stock front end and spindles, with 4x4 1/2 mismatched hubs on there now.

Well, it looks like 10 people looked at my post but couldn't answer. I did some digging on a dozen websites and made several long distance calls, here's what I found...

The front hubs/drums of 48 to early 60s F1/F100 will fit on a 52 Ford F1 front spindle.

But, they have to be a hub and drum set, you cannot mix-n-match a hub from one year to a drum from another, or from model to another (F100 hub, F250 drum).

The fit of hub to the spindle is determined by the wheel bearings.

Just a question from an old hotrodder who is a tad confused. I was under the impression that all of the Ford half ton pickups from 1940 on up had a 5x5-1/2 bolt circle. The 5x 4-1/2 was the passenger car pattern after 1949.
The 4 bolt pattern didn't show up untill the 6 cyl Falcons in 1960. 4 bolt disk brakes would be Pinto or mustang II.
It looks as if someone had done a swap earlier. Almost all Fords use the same outer wheel bearing and the inner probably wouldn't be that hard to match up.
