Re: Hi, I need 4 brake drums.. please

Rear drums fit all 360s
Fronts have one drum for sedan,
different for truck/van

If yours are merely scored, they can be
turned (trued) safely, if you remove
0.015" or more and are going to get
shoes relined use 3/16" bonded material.

Troy - welcome to The Club!

I still drive the same van every day that we bought
in Feb. 1975, excellent condition, no rust ever,
insurance co. says it is worth $8500.

For Justy cyls just use 2 normal copper brake line washers
on one side of the banjo and one on the other. When it
starts to feel tight, wiggle the end of the line and if it
wiggles that means the banjo bolt is bottoming, so
use 2 washers on EACH side of the banjo/
