Hi everybody,I have a question about the rear brakes.I am using a HJ61 FF rear axle on my 40,when I installed this I replaced the original brakes with a disc brake conversion.However I am in need of a mechanical E-brake now and need to put a original set of drum brakes on again.It's realy hard to find the complete set from a FF axle so I was wondering if I can use everything from a SF and put that on my FF?

Maybe anybody has the 2 available and can compare them?

x2, identical. FWIW, bearings are the same as 80 series front and rear axles ( FF rear of course ) as well as 40 series front axles.

Thanks guys I already found out about the bearings when I overhauled them completely about 2 years ago.

My only fear was that the backing plate could be different and maybe even the whole in the drum was smaller/bigger?

The original drums on the FF were a bit thicker material and therefore a bit heavier. But the inner dimensions are identical and the SF drums fit fine on the FF.

This has been covered countless times but The Streetrod Manufacturing Co has a tcase ebrake that's far more effective than perfectly-operating drums: FJ 60 Land Cruiser

You could keep your rear discs.

This won't work for me I have the H151 installed from a 80 series on my 40 and my driveshaft is already on the short side,I wish do I could use it:frown:
