center hub bore on rear drums

i know the hub bore changed on 10" drums at some point as i had a set of 94 10" drums that would not fit my 03 rear.

what i need to know is what year the change happened, AND if the 9" drums have the same change.

i need 9" drums with the larger hub bore.

RECRUITS read here:

i need measurments of the center hub of 9" drum rears. if you have a 9" drum rear and meet the other qualifications in my GD thread , please continue.
  • remove a rear wheel from your ranger
  • measure the diameter of the hub protruding from the center of the drum
  • report back in this thread with the year of your truck and the diameter of the hub

i am workin on a 5lug swap for a slightly off beat axle combo. i am hopin ranger drums will fit my application w/o additional machining. i am certain they will fit other than the center bore, jus lookin for some confirmation on hard numbers before i walk into the parts store and buy a pair.

well you didn't post that so i am just as dumb as you.

and if your gonna use a mustang axle why not get one with rear disk brakes? and why downgrade from 10 inch drums to 9?

my head hurts now.

cause its not going on a mustang, its an older thunderbird

and 10inch brakes would be disproportional with the 10inch brakes up front

  1. i didnt originally specify what axles i was using because i didnt want to muddle the situation with questions about what im building. i only needed measurements, then we can talk about it, if it works
  2. i said im using mustang axles, as in shafts, not a complete rear axle
  3. its not a downgrade when the car im adapting currently uses 9" drums
  4. im not using rear discs because the application and intended use dont necessitate the extra work or money involved to properly set up the master cylinder and prop valve for a balanced four wheel disc system
thanks.




anybody got a measuring tape and 5 extra minutes? id measure it myself if i had access to a truck to measure, i know someone here has a 98+ with 9" drums
