Our searches have been fruitless...

Hit & miss, at best...

Perchance does anyone know of a business that might deal in said parts?

[Some?] brackets are missing...

Shoe is missing...

Drum is intact...

Thanks for your consideration.

The NAPCO conversion shouldn't have anything to do with it, because this type of parking brake was standard equipment on F350's.

All the parts are obsolete, the only hope you have is NOS parts if they can be found. Are both of the shoes missing? If one is still there, is it 9 x 2 or 9 x 3?

See lower pic:

Bill,

All of the shoes are missing...
However, is it possible that neither of those you provided are correct?
We will go back & take photo's, but are sure that both brake assemblies are of the type where the shoe[s] encircle the drum.
One brake assembly is at the rear of the transmission...
The other assembly is actually located on the rear driveshaft...

Thank you so much for your ever-helpful knowledge.

One brake assembly is at the rear of the transmission (as pictured).

The other assembly is actually located on the rear driveshaft.
The lower pic is for the drum type parking brake of F350/850 and etc. The upper pic is similar, but it's for C Series Tilt Cabs & F750/1100's with tandem rear axles.

I'm not familiar with a driveshaft mounted brake.

So, we were wrong...

Both of the Parking Brake assemblies are NOT located on the Driveshaft, but actually at the rear of the Transmission AND at the rear of the Transfer Case.
We believe we came across a picture of the actual brake assembly, in a '1966 Ford Truck Shop Manual';

Volume One [Form 7099-66-1]
Part 2-3 - Parking Brakes
Page 2-37
Fig. 8
Typical External Band Type Parking Brake
H1183-A

Missing Parts:
Brake Bands [top & bottom/ both halves]
Anchor Adjusting Screw
Adjusting Nuts [Upper/ Lower]
Bracket Retaining Screws

We suspect the screws & nuts can easily be replaced, but does anyone believe there is any availability for the Bands [brake shoes]?

All help/ advice is greatly appreciated...

Wm.

My truck has the brake band surrounding the drum. T98 You should have the same tranny. You might try Search Tempest. You can search for a T98. It searches for you on Craigslist and ebay also. You can also search how far away you want to look. You may find the parts still attached to a tranny. But you'll end up with a spare tranny

Parking brake

I have that complete parking brake set-up on a transmission that I know I am not going to use. I will try and post some pictures for you soon to see if its what you are looking for. The weather here is terrible right now with rain preventing me from taking some pictures and posting them now. I'm in located in WV. I will post some pictures soon. Lewis

1960fordf350, Thank you for your advice... will continue searching.
Highboy4x4, If you have it, we are likely a buyer...if you wish, please contact us @ [email protected], or 310.418.9749 [anytime]. Greatly appreciated.

As an aside, we looked closer at both setups, and realize they are basically identical, but the drum at the rear of the transfer case seems to have the most intact hardware...
we may see some light at the end of the tunnel, after all.

Your help is much appreciated!

I have found that there's companies that reline the drum brakes for these. You can find them on ebay and such. Most require cores so there's a core charge. I remember the day when ALL brake pads and shoes required a core. Now days it's simpler to just manufacture the metal to spec than to clean up an old set. But since ND mentioned they are obsolete, your only option most likely is relined or OEM.
I am running one of these setups on my wrecker. I wouldn't trust it on a big hill but it does fine on semi level ground. And I'm in the same boat for my dump truck as you like missing everything to even begin. I've seen complete transmissions on ebay in the 2wd version for around 350-400 with the e brake parts intact.
Another modern option is an inline brake line lock. There's several variations out there. They work about as good as each other. Again, wouldn't trust it on a big hill but does work on semi level ground.

gittinwidit,

Agreed... trying to find these parts may be an uphill battle.
As well, the primary reason is for parking, and parking this truck on a hill should require wheel chocks anyways.
We like the idea of a "line lock", and that likely sounds like an excellent choice.
But, my brother has come across the Disc Brake setup, and is also considering that.
We want to keep it original, and we're hoping the missing parts find their way to us, sooner than later.
Thanks for your input!

Lewis,

Again, thank you for the complete assembly...
It's all cleaned up, and the band is now at the brake shop [$72.00 to re-shoe the band].
Oddly enough, this company has these drum bands on-hand [Brake-Co, 3638 Fruitland Ave, Vernon, CA, 90058/ 323.587.4766]...
These guys can rebuild anything...
Dropped off on Saturday, ready to pick up on Monday...
The fun continues...
