Hi all I have 1.6 drum brakes on the rear of my zero which are 203mm drums. Cant seem to get them anywhere however there are plenty of other ford drums that are 203mm does anyone know if any of these fit.

Looking at old escort/orion capri etc the all have same bolt pattern. I have found some things online which suggest they will but nothing concreate.


regards

One way may be to check if these cars all use the same part number for brake shoes,

otherwise invest a tenner in a breakers yard & see?


It always takes longer to put it right than do it right.

Whats up with your drums? I have a pair of 1.6 drums and all the links but they have been sat around a while and need cleaning up and maybe a skim. As far as I know they have little wear just surface rust.

they are binding, shoes on that side are unevenly worn so think they may be distorted. Don't seem to be a lot of breakers in Leicester these days

Got new shoes arrive today so will swap them out and see if that solves it alternatively have found a source for new drums at sensible prices.
