    I found some backing plates for the 14 bolt. I got home and found that they were 14 inch not thwe 13 inch that I need. I can't find any 13 inch ones that I need. Can I use the 14 inchers and just add the 14 inch drums that go with it and still use the 15 inch wheels I have? Would I be better off finding 13 inch backing plates?


    thanks

    I have 4 backing plates and they all measure 12"s as the diameter I also have the drums I could send them your way for the cost of shipping I can send pics 2. If that will help ya there just taking up space in my garage I did the disc conversion.

    I've got a complete set off of a CUCV that had 5000 miles on it. Aside from the surface rust they look new, shoes drums and all. I will sell them for $50 plus shipping. That is a steal if you go price new drums!

    There is no 14" brakes.

    13" is the largest for the 14FF. 11" is the smallest.

    There are 3 different widths, though.

    They are 13's. As Wes said, there were no 14 inch brakes on 14FF's.

    I would imagine that they are about 14 inches since the 13 inch measurement is actually the braking surface. I will measure them tonight and let you know.
