First time posting, hope this is the right place.
Are the brake shoes on a 1946 1.5 ton the same size as a half ton? If not does anyone know where to get them?

Thanks in advance

No they are not the same size.

If you can't get them from NAPA or your local big truck parts store than you can have your existing shoes re-lined by your local big truck brake center (or NAPA?).

Try the guys at Lincoln Clutch and Brake in Lincoln NE. They pride themselves in the old and hard to find. Had all the wheel cylinders, master cylinder, wheel bearings etc on the shelf for my 1946 2 ton.

I took the trashed original rear brake shoes for my 1950 4100 to a local truck/driveline business and they sent them off to one of their shops, and 3 days $250 later I had them back, and they looked great! But, 50 miles later one of the original bearing seals leaked gear oil on one, so after cleaning it didn't work out, I'll have to send that side back out, and hope I get the same lining material. I saved the other side by replacing both seals, which I should have done in the first place. Another expensive experience.
