Ordered 10" X 2.5" drums and shoes for my 8.75 A body and the backing plates on the car wont work. The wheel cylinder don't stick out enough to line up with the wide shoes. The pivot pin at top doesn't look to be far enough out either. Had the 2" shoes and drums on before. What do i get the correct backing plates off of. Orielly's said they can't get the backing plates. What and where? Thanks guys

Backing plates and drums are a matched pair. I believe the 10x2.5 drums came on Diplomats, Fifth Ave., etc. Do you already have axles with the big bolt offset and bolt pattern?

Jim: I had the axles welded up and redrilled for the BBP. Doin the BB in the duster and thought i'd do the big brakes in the back along with the disc in front. I can use the 2" drums in the back and just drill the drums for the BBP.
