Barnie...if you wanna put the full 12 X2 1/2" brake setup on yours...let me know...Ive got the full front end from a 69 3/4 ton...drum to drum...needs a new home...been taking up alot of room out here... - cs65
Thanks for the offer! ,
However, I suspect your parts are in WA, correct? If so, then I'll have to pass on your offer since I'd guess the shipping costs to MI wouldn't be a minor amount. Now if you were in MI, I'd likely consider trying to make a deal with ya..... If I come into some sort of a windfall sometime soon, I'll get back with you to see if you still have the '69 front brake set.
what is the size of the rear shoes in a 1965 F250 v8 camper special, any ideas of hand/park brakes cables part numbers
The following is based on trucks sold new in the US/Canada. Down Under may be different.
The front and rear brakes shoes are the same size: 12 1/8" x 2"
The rear axle is a Dana 60, as nothing else was available until the late 1970's, and then both the Dana 60 and Dana 61 were available thru 1985.
Sometime after 1968 and before January 1975, Ford replaced the original parking brake cables used on 1965/66 F250's with different cables.
The following are as original:
1) C5TZ2853P .. Front Parking Brake Cable / 98" long / Replaced
1) C5TZ2A635B .. Right (Passenger Side) Rear Parking Brake Cable / 76 19/64" long / Replaced
1) C5TZ2A635A .. Left (Drivers Side) Rear Parking Brake Cable / 70 13/64" long / Replaced
The following are the replacements:
1) B5PZ2853A .. Front Parking Brake Cable / Obsolete
2) C1PZ2A635A .. Right & Left Rear Parking Brake Cables / Obsolete
Parts catalog does not list the measurements for the replacement cables, and I don't know which ones your truck has now.
If the right rear is a differentlength from the left rear, the cables are the originals.
Let me know, then I'll see if I can locate the correct cables NOS (New Old Stock).

A bit new to all this,and any help would be appreciated. I just got hold of a 1965 f250. Where do I find out diff ratios? or do I have to open it up? If I change it it 3.54 ratio how much difference will this make to it at highway speeds? Its got the 352 fe motor and 4 speed manual.
I live in WA(Western Australia)
the truck was imported last year from California looks like. Its got the fe352 motor in it. Struggling to make out numbers on the diff but will try again tomorrow. Want to make it my daily. But needs to get a serious chop...
