Scout D44 Brake drum

The scout 44s I got are minus a brake drum apparently. Are these gonna be easy to find? How much? Is there another easier to find drum that'll work? Thanks for any and all help.

Re: Scout D44 Brake drum

Hey-All you got to do is measure the across-diameter of the other drum and the width of the brake shoe area. That will tell the part store guys what size you need, if they get fumbled up on the year/make/brake size. And just call up the local parts store. Good luck.(OIIIIO)

I don't think they're hard to find, but then I have some spares. You might consider picking up a spare D44 to have for the axle shafts as well.

Re: Scout D44 Brake drum

keep in mind.. the center hole size in the drums.. and get the measurements from above.. then go to the parts store.. look for some ford/dodge rear d44's.. or even the ole jeep ones.. scout parts are pretty expensive.. but most are interchangeable.. you just have to dig.. i know all the front brake parts.. i havent dealt much with a rear d44.. since i know the amc 20 is far better..

but go that route.. you need the diameter.. think 11".. and then you need to know the shoe surface.. probably somewhere around 2".. and then the center hole.. what goes around the piece on the end of the shaft.. somewhere's around 2-3"... then go to any local parts joint.. i head to napa.. they usually are more friendly in my town.. but costly.. so i get the numbers from them.. then head to advanced to buy.. i know.. i suck.. oh well..

Re: Scout D44 Brake drum

Just because it has the right diameter, width, bolt circle, and center hole, dosen't mean it will be right. You also better check the depth of the drum mounting surface. I doubt that there are any other drums that would fit right other then Scout drums. Come on guys, these are your brakes. IMHO, you would have to be nuts to start mixing and matching parts, with something that can take your life, or even worse the life of an innocent bystander.

Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.
