1962 300. 12" rear drums. Previous owner redid the brakes. One rear side the cylinders look over extended and are pulling the outer rubber covers off. Other rear side the cylinder came apart but it could be from a botched installation.

My question is are the 11" and 12" wheel cylinders the same? I can find listings for 11" cylinders but the suppliers say those are no good for the 12" on my '62 300. I can find 12" shoes easily though. For example Rock Auto lists the 12"shoes but not the cylinders for 300, yet it lists both cylinders and shoes for the 11" rear on my Newport. Same story all the other places.

Thanks for your help.

Sean

Thank you! Napa shows the 32555 cylinders as not a fitting part for the 300, which is so odd. I think I'll just order them and take a look. In my imagination it seems an 11" cylinder would be different part from a 12" cylinder. But certainly willing to admit I could be wrong. Thanks again!
