'52 Ford F7 Big Job rear brake cylinders

Hi,

I'm working on a '52 Ford F7 Big Job (old fire truck) and I'm looking for the correct partnumbers of the rear wheel brake cylinders.
I found them in the 48-56 Ford Truck Parts Catalog Illustration Section 21, page 8, Illustration P-690 nr 2261.
As it are lockheeds, I presume they also will be used on other vehicles

One thing to keep in mind if nothing pans out, original wheel cylinders can be reamed out and stainless sleeves installed. Most bores that old probably won't clean up well enough to simply install a rebuild kit because pitting is too deep.

NumberDummy Did I overlook something and can I find these partnumbers myself in the caralog?

1948/56 truck catalog contains one bound paper text catalog, one bound paper Illustration catalog. You need both, because the illustration catalog only shows basic part numbers.

I found them in the text, but you have to know what the symbols for the various models 'decode' to.

Notice that 2Q-2261-A is listed for 1951/55 THQ, Q, QW, Z, ZW .. Not all these models were used in 1948/55, so first you have to find out what the symbols refer to, then what years they were used.

Symbols decoded on page XII in General Information Section at the front of the text. Symbols decode only lists 1951/52, but if it fits these years, it also fits 1948/50. All 1953/56 symbols are decoded.
