If you measure the drum, it will be either 9 or 10" in diameter on the inside. Also get a measure of the width of the shoe. Or better yet, bring a shoe in and match it up. Not sure about cylinder, probably best to match that up too.

Go to one of the websites for Mustang parts. There should be some detail for the party's to help you. I believe you will have 10" drums. 6 cylinders had 9" Are you sure the car is originally a V8? At least, does it have 5 lug wheels? If originally V8 drums will be 10 x 1.75". According to the catalogs the wheel cylinder will depend on build date. Built after 4/15/66 takes the smaller bore. You should look it up yourself to confirm though.

Thanks both. Finally got the pads and cylinders. . got it all off except for the nut around the break fluid pipe into the back of the wheel cylinder is stuck solid! . tried a 10 then a 1/8 then a 3/16. The 10 is too big.. 1/8 too small and the 3/6 too big. eh? what other size is there in between haha
