320 Brake Parts List

Postby deerio » Sun Nov 16, 2014 12:26 am

So the brakes on my '63 320 has been on my checklist since I bought the truck and I had a hard time finding a lead online that had a parts list to replace all the worn parts. Now that I'm all finished with it, I thought it'd be a good idea to create this post for others starting out as myself.

Now please be aware that these are just the parts/numbers I personally used. There were numerous others from other manufacturers available on RockAuto.

Here are the wheel cylinders:
REAR: Beck/Arnley 072-2561

FRONT: Beck/Arnley 072-1936
Image


The brake shoes for the rear (I'll take a picture of the front set when I can):
REAR: Centric 111.05110
Image


The brake hoses (the single rear hose is longer than the ones for the front):
REAR: Centric 150.42320
Image

FRONT: Raybestos BH36737
Image


The drums are the same for both front and rear.
These Centric drums have the two screw holes like the OEM ones but they do NOT line up with the holes in hub:
Front and Rear: Centric 123.42005
Image

Here is the replacement brake hardware for the rear (I'll take a picture of the front set when I can):
REAR: Wagner 17111

derrio,

This is some good stuff. Thanks for the pics and parts numbers, especially brand spanking new the Centric Drums!

I have found that I have had to file/ground off that outer tab (at least that's what I call it) on the front wheel cylinder for the drum to fit properly. However, I went with the 11/16 front wheel cylinder, so that may be the reason, that 1/16inch difference.

I'll find the part numbers for new front springs set and the brake/clutch line to frame mounting points clips.

Also if you are looking for the OE 3/4inch nut over the attaching clip, then brake lines from a MGA will work. However, yhis option will more than double your expense of replacing the brake lines.

Again, great info.

Andy

Well I tried to edit my first post to consolidate the info but I guess I can't, so here are the numbers for the front brake hardware:

CARLSON 17200
DORMAN HW17200
CENTRIC 11842001 (This is what I personally ended up getting since it's what was available at the time)



I'll also get the part number for the retention clip that holds the brake hose in place, I just went to NAPA and the guy at the counter knew what I needed, it was something like 50cents each.
