Default New brakes drums 1953 F250

I am looking for new drums for a 1953 F250. Front and rear. I can find the rest of everything I need front LMC and or Mid Fifty. But the drums seem to be eluding me. They are 8 bolt. I canít find any specific numbers either to help in my research.

Thank you

The Ford parts book shows Front B5D-1125-A and the rear TBAA-1126-A.

I think Chuck's has a drum that will work but the shoes have to match the drum as well.

As I remember the 1953-55 drums are 12 inch but the '56 on up fronts which are more readily available (they ran that size for years) are 12 1/8. I solved that by finding front 1956 F250 backing plates from a junkyard. This was some years ago. On the rear, I swapped axles from a later truck which had 4.10 gears as the original 1956 was 4.86 and too low of ratio for modern roads.
