  1. Fargo FM2-16 Brake Drums

    Thanks very much for the info
  2. Studs for rear drums?

    I'm looking for front and rear drums for a 1949 B 1D 1 ton (6 stud). Do you have any such things
  3. Fargo FM2-16 Brake Drums

    Got it. Thanks for the info.

    That would be for the 5 stud B2B series with sold rims right? Mine is a 6 stud B1D series with split rings.

    Thanks for the comments. I'm trying to keep the truck as original as possible. Also, my research to date agrees with Young Ed - converting to discs would entail significant effort and expense for a 1 ton. Also I would need to abandon the originality aspect. If my effort to source the correct drums is unsuccessful, one option I'm looking at is to bolt B 1 B axles under it. Seems those parts are much easier to find. At least that would keep it somewhat original. Anyone out there done that?
  7. Fargo FM2-16 Brake Drums

    I'm new to the forum so I hope I'm doing this right. I have a Fargo FM2 1 ton, same as a Dodge B 1 D, I believe. All four brake drums are worn beyond limits. I have not yet been able to source serviceable replacements. They are hard to find! I haven't been able to find anything on the subject in the forums about welding or inserts or some other method, then turning them to spec (which I don't have). I've looked at recasting using the existing drums to build moulds, but cannot be assured they will conform to specs after cooling. And the cost would be $400.00 to$500.00 each. Ouch! Can anyone help?
