Bigger shoes go on the rear side, as it does most of the braking.

<< Burt,
If your wanting info for converting your 72 F250, and its original (closed
knuckle front end), I don't think this will work for your truck. If it is a
later model front end though, you can convert it this way, but you would just
substitute the Dana 44 8 lug hubs and rotors (or since the Chevy and Ford
3/4T
bolt patterns are the same, go with all Chev in the front, no one will ever
know). You should still be able to use the 15" wheels, possibly with a
little
grinding on the caliper and caliper mounting depending on the style of wheel
you're using. >>

John,

Thanks for the information and write up. I saved it in a file in case I
decided to go that way. Great Job

I just replaced the tranny lines on my 79 bronco so yours shouldn't be much
different. Mine were 5/16" steel tubing. Most autoparts stores have an
assortment of straight galvanized tubes with pre flared ends. This is what I
used (along with some creativity) to replace mine. With a bender and some
flaring tools and you can have some darned nice looking custom lines. Most of
the generic lines come with a male flare fitting on each end. If you need a
female, save the originals and reuse them on the new line. I've got my new
lines run above the passenger side frame rail instead of under the engine. It
gets em outa harms way, looks a bit tricker, and gave me a place to mount a
sender block for my tranny temp & pressure gauges. Ive also got a cooler
plumbed in. It's the only thing using rubber tubing to make the connection (1
1/2" of rubber tube per line).
I could send some pics if your interested, and yes, you can probably tell Im
proud of it too! Wasn't hard at all to do, relaxing in a way. In fact, I had
so much fun on the tranny lines, I went to the fuel and some of the larger
vacuum lines!
Anyway. Enough rambling.

I've given up hope finding a set for my '69. But I was wondering if anyone
knows if they make a CD for the older rigs? I know you can get the diagrams
on CD for the newer stuff, but what about the better, er, I mean older
stuff? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
