any body have a refererence site or documentaion on converting a 37 ford to later ford hydraulic drum brakes? thks bob
thanks this is great info and just what i was hoping for, yes i do want to reuse those big wheels they are cool looking... fortunately i have two sets of everything, backing plates, whl cylinders,drums etc, including the 39 pedal assembly with the mstr cyl attached, this is courtesy of a friend who had a 36 and never got around to installing the parts so i bought his left over parts.....out of curiosity what would be a fair price to ask for selling the 39 pedal assembly/MSTR cyl, 4 whl cyls and the 4 extra backing plates?pasadenahotrod said:This swap is one of the oldest and easiest modifications ever!....The "bolt-in" master cylinder bracket and pedal assembly is from a 1939 Ford car or pickup ONLY. These are almost impossible to find so I did not mention it 'til last figuring you did want to drive your 37 not just look for rare parts.
Bleed 'em and adjust 'em and drive!!
