I’m attempting my second-ever ground-up restoration, this one’s on a ’72 ’Cuda 340. One thing I’d really like to do right is the rear drum (11˝) brakes. I’ve seen guys display their rear brakes at shows with the wheel and drum off, and, frankly, I think a lot of what’s shown is wrong. For instance, was the backing plate painted? I’ve never seen any evidence of that at junkyards. I guess what I’d really like from you is some kind of reference material. I’ve seen your factory assembly drawings, but they only show how the stuff was assembled, not color markings, etc.
No problem. Through the magic of time- warp photography, I’m able to show you, in living color, a complete NOS 11˝ rear drum brake assembly, ripped off right from the assembly lines in the 1970s! Who loves ya, baby?
