Sometimes they have used parts. You might have to buy a whole hood in
order to get the emblem.
They do list brake shoes in their t catalog; at least the one I have.
(2002) As well as some misc. brake parts.
According to my parts book, 46-52 rear 3/4T brake drums are the same.
47-52 3/4T Front brake drums are the same.
I can't remember the brake sizes, but it is possible that brake drums
from newer 3/4 trucks might fit your model. Chev. used drum brakes on
the rear of their 3/4T and 2500 and 3500 series trucks well into the
80s. You might find one that will fit your model.
You might have to run around a lot of salvage yards to find something.
You might want to change out the stock rear axle to something more
freeway friendly which would be a later model 3/4 ton drum brake axle
with maybe a 2:73 axle ratio.
As I remember the 3/4T trucks had 2X12 inch brakes. The 8-lug patten
is pretty universal on many trucks so it is possible you could get
something from another brand of truck that would bolt on.
