I would bolt it up to your hub and be on your way. Just make sure to tighten it evenly so the gap is the same on both sides.

Actually I looked at mine, it's very worn but it does say "falcon" on it. And that's the 1.506.

Maybe they changed how they were making them at some point, making the outer material thicker so it'd be more durable?

Doesn't matter to me anymore though, I already went ahead and ordered the HD hub (48 teeth are going to suck but whatever) since my bearing ended up breaking, and the LBS's around don't carry the bearing cones (the broken bearing actually took a chunk out of the cone). So they said "yeah, you're going to have to get a whole new hub".

I honestly didn't want to replace it in the first place, because I just learned how to take it apart piece by piece for greasing, and put it back together again. Coaster brakes always stumped me in the past. Oh well.
