Does anyone know if the Cobra rear hubs will work on a drum brake rear end? Would it be a simple hub swap and re-drill of the brake drums to convert to the 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern on the rear? Has anyone actually done this conversion on drums?
This hub change is in conjunction with a Cobra 3.73 trac-loc pumpkin, alum drive shaft, new half-shafts, and "D-Chip" installation. I'm not sure if my rim/tire combination is going to work, so I don't want to be too far into the conversion where I can't back out quickly and go back to original and be back on the road. My other transportation is a 69 F100 w/460… 8 – 10 mpg… I drive 120 miles per day roundtrip to work…!!
Couple quick questions: are the rear discs on the T’Bird solid or vented disc, and what are their dimensions (diameter and thickness)
