Default Rear Brake Drum 63-K1000

Was a member years ago on Jolly’s original site, just rejoined, great to be back and back into
my old GMC! Have a brake drum question, ordered a set of rear brake drums 63 K1000 Danas, original drum slightly dished so sits tight into the brake plate groove, my local Napa guys sent flat type drums like 2WD type that dont contact back
plate, anyone else had this issue and know what drums I should be looking for? Thanks

Here is my original post on this issue.

Hope this helps.

I have two part numbers you can try for rear 6 lug brake drums. The first is a Wagner BD 60089. The second is Allsafe 2067 DGS.

I used the Allsafe from Autozone. It is for a later model (I think 67-72) truck with 4 wheel drive. It has fins on the outside unlike the original that is smooth. The only modification that I had to make was to drill the 6 lug holes from 1/2" to 9/16" so that the drum would fit on the shoulders on the rear lugs like the original. This drum had the right offset unlike the Chivy drums.

The Wagner was a number that I got from another member of the 6066gmcguy.org site. I haven't used that one, but was told it was a direct match to the original (a bit pricey, though is what I remember).

I hope this helps with those looking for rear 6 lug drums.

Regards,
