brake issue on 1972 270

Unread post by tom70 » Mon Aug 17, 2020 11:44 am

I am working on a 1972 270 for a customer king pins, brake shoes, wheel cylinders, adjusters and springs need replaced on front axle. brake shoes, wheel seals, adjusters and springs need replaced on rear axle. from what I've researched not all parts are available. is there any where I can get parts? can I change backing plate assemblies with newer axles? can I just put newer dana 70hd under rear?

I found the rear wheel cylinders (upper and lower brake) from napa for my '70 were actually international truck parts from the mid 60's. all front brake parts were listed under dodge m375-400 chassis
