Hey there, Stovebolt gang, this is my first post. I have a 1952 3100 that belonged to my grandpa and was fully restored a few years ago. I noticed some gear oil dripping from the passenger side rear wheel. I removed the drum to find the inside of it and the shoes covered in gear oil. I'm replacing the axle seal and will need new rear brake shoes. I was hoping to source the new shoes locally. I've done some searching, but can't seem to find a part number (other than the original one which wasn't much help) and was hoping someone might be able to help. I found these at O'Reilly's--does anybody know if these are correct for a '52? Many thanks in advance for the help! I'll start a proper "new member" thread in the welcome section once I get this done. Thanks!!

Thank you! I got the ones from O'Reilly's so we'll see how they work out. The replacement axle seal I bought was giving me trouble during installation so waiting on another seal before I can get everything put back together. The only difference between the shoes that were on the truck and the O'Reilly's shoes are that the O'Reilly's linings are the same on both shoes instead of one short lining and one long lining. Other than that, they seem to be identical.

With the wheel off, can you feel up and down movement of the axle? Worn bearings/axle shaft will not allow a new seal do its job very long.

Thanks for the tip, Carl. I did not check this before removing the axle, but I will when I reinstall. Everything was replaced with the restoration a few years ago, but my aunt and uncle didn't drive the truck very much at all since.

The bearings ride on the axle, so it is possible (and common practice) to replace the bearings without checking for wear on the axles. Seals don't like that.
