 I am trying to upgrade my wagon to FC rear brakes. From what I see it's a bolt on deal. Much binger brakes. I have already installed a 65 front end and converted it to disks. The only draw bakes I can see is no dual master and you must use at least 14" wheels.Paul Fox

Try to find some one with a shoe grinder. Have them grind the shoes to fit the drums. This makes a huge difference. The grinders are hard to find because of "environmental/ health issues"  60-62? backing plates will not let you just put on 64 drums , finned or not. You will end up with a lot of hard work , not returning that much better braking.so focus on the rears.Of course I am assuming all the rest of the system is all carefully  redone.Regards, Tim Colson  C N Y C C.
