    Have you checked with NAPA? They could get drums, pads, etc for my 800 and should be able to get SII drums as well as along as you have the size. About $55 each I think.

    IH switched from an 1 3/4 inch wide drum to a 2 1/4 in about 1974. It is the wider drum that is expensive, 103+ and the one Erick refers to. The older drum set up is about 30 dollars for a replacement drum. One could always swap out to the older drums, backing plates and everything, to go with the narrow and cheaper drums. Not sure how much braking difference would be felt, if any, downgrading a brake size. Jeeps seemed to use the older drum for a long time after IH had made the change.

    Just spend the 200 bucks. Get the correct drum. Don’t run the rears down to metal on metal and the drums should last another 30 years.

    Just started to do brake job on 77 scout 2, parking brakes were disconnected when I bought, now after 2 months of waiting on parts and making 2 trips to Napa for ALL THE HARDWARE ( they don't understand that phrase ) I find I'm still short the PB. STABILIZER BARS, DID THOSE 94 ford f150 BARS fit ok ?

    If you find another that will work, make sure to post it. But personally, for something like a brake drum, I'd get one now. The next step to "priced sky high" is "no longer available". I'd count myself lucky if I could run out and buy new drums for 100 bucks each.

    The price seems to be trending down a bit for the Raybestos 2315R drums. I'm seeing a range of $76 to $90 each for them with decent availability. While that is still a higher price point than we'd like to see for them, it isn't in the stratosphere anymore, which is nice for a change.

    The ford struts for parking brakes to small, ordered from Roedel brothers, looks like they are reasonable in prices
