    Those are rear brake cam shafts. Pretty sure the left one is early 28. Could not find mine to compare to the later, but if memory serves me correctly there were 2 sizes used in very early cars with smooth backing plates, then another used in the ribbed backing plates.

        Very Early Front Backing Plate
        by Gary Karr
        I thought some might find this interesting. Attached are a couple of pictures of a front backing plate from a very early '28 that does not have the roller tracks for the brake shoe pins to ride on. These were used on only the first 200 vehicles. When you think about it, you can see why they were later added....

        Is the part circled in red the same on both the front and rear backing plates?...

        Rear Backing plates
        by Steve Plucker
        I am trying to determine just why I can not get the rear hubs on my fully assembled rear backing plates.

        When the backing plates are assembled to the rear axle and the brake wedges are fully bottomed out...the hubs will not go on.

        I do not want to force them as I probably will not get them off.

        Every part was looked at for quality, length, what ever.

        39-42 Lockeed rear brake issues
        by Denis4x4
        In September, I replaced all of the wheel cylinders and cleaned up the backing plates etc. This is a photo of the left rear brake on a Model A rear end. Had the original Ford logo brake shoes relined. The ebrake cables are Locar and work with the A ebrake handle. The ebrake arms are in a bind and the only things I can identify as issues are the guides on the backing plates where the ebrake arms....

        Distributor Upper Plates
        by conaway2
        I recently acquired a mixed-bag lot of 30 upper plates - most are in good condition, and include A, B and Nu-Rex plates.
        What plates were typically on cars made in 29, 30 and 31 ? I have Autolite, Specialty Products and what I think may be Motorcraft plates. The lot also included 2 copper-plated plates, which the judging standards say were from 1928 - who made these plates ? I can;t see a clear...

        This is gonna sound very elemental (Stupid) I kick myself for not knowing. Here goes, In putting the backing plates on the front wheels, what size (Length) 3/8 X 24 bolts are used and are these locked with a castle nut and a cotter pin? T.I.A.

        Early 28 rear end
        by Manager
        I bought complete front and rear ends not needed by a hot rodder. It's all in good condition and I have pulled the front end apart, got the bits I needed and went to start on the rear end. My shackle holes are very worn in my bells. Plan was as the car this all came out off was that good and everything looked in that good shape to just put the complete rear in and keep the current one for spares....

        1931 License plate question
        by Curly
        I have a nice set of 1931 Arizona plates that I’m going to send in for restoration. You’ll notice in the picture these plates have small holes in the top corners of the plates. I thought they were nail holes until I noticed other Az plates from this era have the same holes placed in the same location. Are they suppose to be there? What’s their purpose? ...

        Vintage license plates option
        by Curly
        Period correct plates are a nice touch on a vintage car. In some states finding a set of restorable plates is cost prohibitive. I recently had a set of correct plates made for my closed cab truck. The company that made them ( is out of Florida. The cost is $125 per plate and the quality is the same as state issued plates.
        Whether or not your state will certify them as original...
