    Rockauto.com lists drums, brake shoes, brake parts, etc for a 67 3/4 ton p/u, nada for a 65. Maybe they are the same?


    1.75 inch
    2 inch
    2.5 inch
    3 inch

    Lots of sizes listed with Wagner part numbers.

    HTH.

    Drums, for a 1200????? I'm thinking that's a misprint, but if not it is great news. Everything but the drums is pretty much availible, but drums for the 6 lug 3/4 ton trucks have been unobtanium for many years.

    Dana 44 front. Probably IH corporate rear. Maybe a Dana 60 rear, thats what my 66 has.
    With the "big 6" bolt pattern brake upgrades are unlikely.

    Yeah Dave, thats what it shows, but only for a "3/4 ton". No numerical models listed for 67. Maybe it is a goof on their part.

    I tried to do a screen copy, but that site resists image copies.

    For the 67 3/4 4x4 w/266 V8
    Wagner BD61891 drum rear sgl rr whl 10.5" RG
    Wagner BD60727 drum rear sgl rr whl 9.5" RG
    Wagner BD60356 drum rear dual rr whl

    for a 67 3/4 4x4 w/241 L6
    Wagner BD61817 drum rear 11 5/32x2 3/4

    for a 67 3/4 2x4 w/266 V8
    Wagner BD61832 drum rear

    and a 67 3/4 2x4 w/241 L6
    Wagner BD61891 drum rear sgl rr whl 10.5" RG
    Wagner BD60727 drum rear sgl rr whl 9.5" RG
    Wagner BD60356 drum rear dual rr whl
    (note that these are the same part numbers listed for the 67 3/4 4x4 w/266 V8 above)

    Of course I cant vouch for any of these numbers, Im just copying what I saw at https://www.rockauto.com/

    Part numbers may very well be correct but are they still available, thats the big question.
    Nice to have them anyway. Going in my "IH" file.

    thanks guys.

    Drums, for a 1200????? I'm thinking that's a misprint, but if not it is great news. Everything but the drums is pretty much availible, but drums for the 6 lug 3/4 ton trucks have been unobtanium for many years.

    they are drums. front and rear.

    do i measure the actual drum for these brakes?
    its a closed knuckle front, could easily be a 44, but the rear is a big rear with a 3rd member, i think its the IH rear ive seen before.

    does anyone know if i could modify a complete scout 44 knuckle with discs for this front axle? i think, being closed knuckle, i will have problems with getting it to match. i havent had much experience with closed knuckles.

    also, i may just end up making a disc conversion for the rear like many people have done with the rear 44''s on the scouts.
