    Yeah, it was.

    Wait....
    I may have misunderstood the question.
    The Jeep was an 8 1/4" axle but the brakes I pulled were from a 7 1/4" axle in a Fifth Avenue. A check at FCBO showed what I have seen myself....Every Fifth Avenue either had a slant six *(Early years) or a 318 2 barrel. Several members over there recall all of them having 7 1/4" axles.

    Good find at the yard. I have a box of extra springs and hard parts for rear/front drum brakes if you are still looking for anything.

      I would be glad for any of the hard to find parts. The struts, parking brake levers and self adjuster hardware are either not reproduced as far as I know.

      They are available except for maybe the park brake levers.. If you need them, I might be able to find them again..........................MO
