52 f2 wheel cylinder?

I have searched for days but can't find what I thought I read somewhere.

I got a front 52 f2 axle that I'm going to use in a model A, I thought I read at one time that there was a dual wheel cylinder that would work instead of the single piston wheel cylinder, is there one I could use or did I just dream this up?
Thanks.

Doesn't the F2 have a 6 lug bolt pattern?

So are these the part numbers for dual piston wheel cylinders?
And if so what supplier should I go through? Napa?
Thanks,
Phil

I looked the numbers up online and it shows the single piston cylinder, I was hopping to fond a dual that would work,
Oh well I guess ill just stick with the stock ones.
Thanks.

Ilya, '48-52 F-2s are eight lug.

I think, but I'm no expert by far, that he may be using the F-2 backing plates with Buick drums. That seems to be the hot combination on the HAMB.

I think the backing plates are the same for all of them, but again I'm not totally sure, I'd have to check the parts catalog I have. If this is correct you could use the earlier F-2, 48-50 wheel cylinders which I was able to get without a problem at NAPA. The reproduction guys like Job Lot, Mac's and Dennis Carpenter have them but cost a few bucks more plus shipping.

Where did you look, wiki wiki? If so, I wouldn't trust anything wiki says.

Parts catalog pic shows 2 pistons in each cylinder (double ender), only light truck I can recall with single piston cylinders (single ender) are 1962/63 F100/250's.

ID-2061 & ID-2062: Antique Auto Supply in Arlington TX has both of these cylinders, call 'em and ask: 817-275-2381.

Fit: 1948/52 F2/F3 & 1953/56 F250/350.

Yeah its an 8 lug and I'm going to keep it that way. Gives it more of a heavy duty look, plus its going to be holding up a 460

Hey Phil,
Good to meet you the other day! Sweet Bronco's btw.

hope you find what you need with that axle, sorry, I'm of no help with the F2 F3 Brake stuff, Are those drums any good after you got them off?
I have an almost new set of rear brake drums from an 51 F3 (yes they are 8 lugs on a 51 F3. Bill, you mentioned above that f3's were 6 lug??? are you sure?)
I am not sure if they are the same as the rear or if they would work on the front you have or not?? these guys would definitly know.


Cheers

Josh

No, because I goofed.
You are correct, my eyes wandered to the next parts catalog listing.

1948/52 F3: 8 lug wheels on a 6.50" bolt circle, same as 1948/52 F2, 1953/56 F250.

1953/56 F350 (1957/66 F350): 6 lug wheels on a 7.25" bolt circle.

We all make mistakes, I just never thought that it happened to you!
, I guess we will let it slide this time, but don't let it happen again. hahaha

Do you know if the rear drums from a 51 f3 (12" drums) would fit on the front axle? I can't remember visually if the front drums look different from the rears?

Thanks

Thats Funny Right there ! I was thinking it but didn't go that far...


speaking of dual and single piston wheel cylinders, I thought the fronts had dual pistons and rears were single piston cylinders?? or the other way around? or is that what he said and I just missed it?
