1976 model year switched to discs, so something is fishy if you have drums.

You wouldn't think that Izusu would continue to use drums well after the discs were introduced here. Still seems unusual. Does the vin number match an 80?

Sorry that none of this answers your question about other vehicles parts fit the Luv. From what I've seen here, there is lots of emphasis on finding and using original parts even though it is highly unlikely that the factory only used proprietary parts made just for this relatively small production truck. My valve cover says Izusu,not McClaren.lol
