Before I'd go to disk brakes, I'd change the rear end to a later version without the tapered hub.

You'd probably have to do that with a disc conversion anyway.

Tanner,
What size Rear Brake Drum do you have???
If you have the 11" x 2 1/2", I am pretty sure I have the Brake Drums....
If you have the 11" x 3" Rear Brake Drum --- I have a handful of the old keyway installed
Brand New *** N.O.S. ONLY, of course *** HUB & DRUM ASSEMBLIES!!!! ***

This is going to be a very difficult Hub & Drum Changeover for most machine shops .....
But if you have the 11" x 3" s, you don't need them, thanks to my N.O.S. H & D s !!!

Yours, Craig......

I checked Kanter whom I know make them for a '62. For whatever reason they don't for a '63. Those for a '2 won't work as they are a different size.
