1320Fastback It is well worth it for sure. I recently finished my conversion off including bypassing the ABS the truck stops so much better.

sdeeter19555 We replaced the driver's side today. The Advance Auto version is a wca35325 (driver's side) and they are 1-1/8" bore for a 12x3 brake shoe. The one I took off the truck is a 7/8" bore. We measured both...the 1-1/8" fit fine on the 12x2.5" shoes.

As you can see, it was a worthwhile thing to do...one pin was almost seized, and it was rusty. I would recommend this to anyone who does not know the maintenance history of their ride.

Adjusted both sides up, have a solid pedal now...

I've had really good luck with Rock Auto. Used them a lot for my rebuild. Water pump, radiator cap, suspension, brakes, fan clutch, axle seals, steering links, and more have all been right.

Try looking up a water pump...they hand you a big block Chevy pump...

I assumed 12x2 was a gasser, the reason I went with 12x3.

sdeeter19555 See that really threw everyone at Advance Auto, their books show a 12x2 and a 12x3 option, no 12x2-1/2. I chose 12x3 since I was confident it was 12x2, so I may just go buy another one of those for the other side and call it a day.

I still need to replace hoses...

What is the bleeding procedure for that ABS? Is it in the FSM?

No need to modify anything like with the GM cylinders.

Most upgrade to 1 316 cylinders, look for listing of 94 e250 i think.
First gen diesel d/w250 12 drums with 2.5 wide shoes used 7/8 cylinders d/w350 used 1 cylinders and the same 12 drums with 3 shoes. The one ton stuff bolts directly into a 250 using the same drum. The Chevy cylinder is an even larger 1 1/8

The Chevy 1 ton cylinders can be used in a first gen just bend the brake line a bit.
