    I have done a search for this part number on a few websites..
    Some say it's compatible with a '67 Dodge Dart, others say it's not.
    I've verified with my mechanic that it's a 10" drum, but other than that, can anyone verify that it fits a '67 Dart Convertible?
    Need brakes soon. :)

    Yes if you have original small bolt then these are the correct ones for you.

    I talked to the technical group at Centric to verify this number, 123.63044, was correct for the 10" x 1 3/4" drum with 4" bolt circle. The guy said yes and the specs on the web page were incorrect. So I ordered a set from the local parts place after telling him I checked. I just went to pick them up and check the size on them. NOPE 2 1/8" wide drums. They have that exact number stamped on the drum. I will be calling Centric again.

    I've got good news for you. You have the right drums.

    I went out to check my drums just to verify. The "friction surface" on my drum is 2-1/8" wide. The friction surface on the drum has to be a little wider than the brake shoe width of 1-3/4". In this case, you have 3/16" clear on each side.

    You're good to go -- or stop, as the case may be.

      I just started to find all of the parts for my 8 3/4 build. Tried to locate the rear 10 inch drums, but could not find them anywhere including Rock Auto. Finally, asked the parts guy at O 'Reillys. The web site I checked did not show 10 SBP drums, but he located them easily and had them shipped in the next day. They look good, but won't know for sure on the fit until I go to the shop on Saturday. The measurements look good.
      He told me to pass the word along about the availabilty of these drums. So if anyone is interested, they can get them for $ 49.00 each under Best Brake Select brand , part # BBR 2932d6s. Larry

      OK, as of today, I've checked out availability of the C-Tek drums and the Best Brakes drums....no go on both, so where can I get new brake drums for my 8 3/4 rear, 10 x 1.75" brakes now?

      It is still interesting that many parts houses don't clearly list this drum. First of all remember that the C-Tek number is for a SBP. So if you have SBP drums, call Centric directly and ask them for a retailer in your area that they ship to. Centric's phone number is in the original post.

      I just noticed you're from Canada, I'd still call Centric directly. However, many people have got these drums from RockAuto. You could call RockAuto and insist on that number, regardless of what is posted on their Website.

      If you still have trouble, contact me and I'll do some checking on my end. Good luck.

      I called Centric today and the lady confirmed that they do NOT have any in inventory at this time. She did say that more of these drums have been ordered, but there is no firm shipping date. Try again at the end of June.

      Got them in from RockAuto this afternoon. Should work fine when I add some holes.

      New is about .060" thinner than the old.
      Inside casting surface is rough.
      Register is tight on an old driver side axle.

      Just received 2 drums from RockAuto yesterday 12/24. The drums were $30/ea with $8 for shipping. Dang things were scheduled to come in 12/28, but showed up 4 days earlier.
      Amazing during the Christmas season. Now to get the 4.5" hole pattern drilled. I have a pair of the the factory 10" "Darth Vader" looking drums. Wanted to get them turned to clean them up. After going to 5 shops including Sun Devil Auto, Greulichs, O'reillys, no one could turn them with the the current shop equipment, or their equipment was broken. Buy new for $30 each, or pay $20 each to turn them.....Hmmm

      I have a 10" drum with the 4.5" pattern from a B body. Invert the B body drum over the 4" pattern drum, center the middle hole. The 4.5" B body drum with a larger center hole, easy to have the center holes concentric, and have the new stud holes 1/2 way between the 4" holes. Hole pattern will look like this.
