Backing plate assembly for 57 Flying Cloud

Can anyone tell me where to buy the complete backing plate brake assembly for my 57 Flying Cloud. It has the original axels and I would like to up date the electric brakes on it.

Any place that has trailer parts should be able to fix you up. I would take my old one with you just to make sure. Don't forget to get new mounting bolts for the plate and new wheel seals. I would also get new bearings if it was mine.

Take the old drum and bearings with you also. The new backing plates may not fit in an old drum. If the backing plates fit the old drum you can also get new bearings, if not you will know the spindle size for new bearings.
