Your friend is correct. 48-51 front drums for F-2,3 has 11 13/16" ID. 51-52 F-2,3 has 12" ID drums. He seems to know what he needs. I don't have a line on them. Part number for the late drums is 1D 1125-B

Kennewick , WA I went to the most unusual drive-in movie in my life outside the tri-cites. We were camped at a park on the Columbia river and went to this drive-in movie (X-rated) where every car had it's own screen. the projector was in the middle & projected to each screen from the rear . All the cars were parked in a circle. My uncle ,cousin & myself were in a '49 F-1 by the way. Just had that thought when I saw you were from Kennewick

OK, I just had to ask, what part was unusual? The movies screens arranged in a circle or three dudes crammed in a cab of an F-1 watching porno movies?

Ahh, yes, the Tri-Circle Theater. Snuck into the place underage when I was in high school with some buddies and some beer back in the 70's, just to say we did. It's long gone now. A freeway runs through it.

This post should have come up about two years ago. I bought a complete set of drums for my '49 F-2 from a person on the defunct "Bonus Built" site about 8-9 years ago and put them on my shelf. About two years ago I went to use them on my '49 and they were different. I didn't know Ford switched brake design in mid '51. I blasted the drums and had them turned to specs and figured I wouldn't have a problem reselling them because no reproduced them. I place in the FTE classifieds and then eBay with no luck. After the second time on eBay ended a guy contacted me and gave me an offer and I sold them. I think I got $200 for the complete set. They were in really nice shape. Considering LMC and others sell the '48-mid '51 version for over $100 a piece I thought they went pretty cheap but I wasn't going to have them sitting around for ever.
