Original wheel cylinder supplier?

I'm making great progress on my 1960 F-100's concours restoration. Years ago, I replaced the leaking original Ford wheel cylinders, but threw them out...doh. After some research, it appears either Wagner-Lockheed or Bendix was the original supplier for Ford's wheel cylinders. Anyone have an original wheel cylinder from their 1957-1960 truck they'd be willing to reference for me? Anyone know the original supplier off-hand? The wheel cylinder should have the information stamped on the wheel side of the cylinder. I'd like to re-install the correct cylinders, as both companies still manufacture cylinders for my truck with their name stamping on the side...........**** detail, yes, but that's concours for ya. Thanks!

I don't remember any mfr. showing on mine, but I'm also not sure they were original.

The thing to keep in mind is, if both manufacturers were suppliers at the time, your truck could have had either brand or a mix-and-match, depending on what was available and handy that day at assembly. Different assembly plants in different parts of the country may have used one or the other as well, again, depending on availability. What's on one guy's truck may not have been what was on yours. While I can appreciate your attention to detail, unless you have your originals, there's no way to know for sure 100% what yours were. If you know that those were the only options, then either one would be correct.

After researching several NOS wheel cylinders from the same era, all but one were Wagner-Lockheed stamped on the cylinder, packed in Ford or FoMoCo boxes. I can relate to the part/factory availability issue. Throughout the restoration I've found a couple parts that were for other truck models, but used on my truck...must have been out of the particular part that day and made do with what fit.
