You should be more concerned with the cylinder bore size. Many sold are 7/8". the appropriate & best are 3/4" as they are better from a point of view of the brake bias between front & back.

they are cheap as at the local brake place for a new cylinder ~$25

rear linings $50, machine drums $50

Rockauto might be worth it for outback QLD

my local brake bloke is 5min drive, and a Savant on brakes, been doing it 40+ yrs

I set my rear linings with big outside calipers and they were spot on
