I can't be sure from your photos, is that backing plate offset about 3/4" deep? If so they are '42-'48 Lincoln and will fit '37-'48 spindles. If deeper than that then the mounting holes should be 3/8" and they will be a direct bolt on to the early '32-'36 spindles, and just to confuse things there was also a flatter recess backing plate from the 1941 Lincoln.
Also keep in mind that Lincoln king pins are a larger diameter and have a different KPI, so even if you sleeved them for Ford k/p bushings you have to bend the axle for correct camber.

I believe the question was, can we help ID the years of the brakes on the Lincoln axles shown in the photo so he can locate parts for the brakes. "Fordors" is correct, the deep set backing plates are likely '42-48, as the earlier ones were similar to the Ford setback, and why they are the preferred brake for conversion to Ford axles & spindles.

Thanks to Jason, somehow I omitted the years when I described the deepest backing plates.
