  • do these brake shoes fit a Studebaker?

    I have a set of relined brake shoes that I think may fit a Studebaker (see link below for photo). They don't fit any of mine. First, I am curious; what do they fit? Second, I'll give them to whomever wants them and will pay for shipping. They are either new or have new lining. There are no identifiying numbers on them that I can see.

    They look to me like Chrysler product brakes of the 50s era. If I recall correctly, there were 9, 10 and 11 inch versions. The eccentric bolt for adjustment went through that large hole. You can't just walk into NAPA or anywhere and buy them anymore. I'm sure some Mopar enthusiast would be happy to have them.

      Prewar Studes used this style as well. As Blue says, there's a cam that fits into that big hole and it's turned (for adjustment) by the anchor pin that goes thru the square hole in the cam.
      Looking at my prewar parts book, these are sorta like the Stude shoes, but are a bit different at the top, where the hydraulic piston works.

      Miscreant at large.

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Thanks guys. I wish I remembered where I got these. I would only have brought them home if I thought they fit a Studebaker, but that doesn't mean they do. The metal part of all 4 shoes is identical, but two have 10-inch lining and two have 9-1/2 inch lining. The color of the 10-inch lining is darker (redder) than that of the 9-1/2 inch lining so the composition may also be different. Not surprising as primary shoe is usually different from the secondary shoe. Maybe someone else will come up with additional information to solve this mystery. Dale

          I've got a set of relined shoes that are similar to this out in the shop. A few years ago I bought a fella out that had owned Studes thru the years and had accumulated Stude stuff even if it didn't happen to fit his Studes. It seems I recall that the box containing the set I'm talking about says something about prewar applications. I'll have to see if I can find that box.
