Yes. I remember now that the 1 1/4 are no longer available. I got the 1 3/8 from Chuck as direct replacements. My brakes work well (now that they're adjusted correctly).

If there is any chance of the size not matching, I would certainly replace both so as equal force on each wheel.

Edit: I don't remember what size cylinder I had vs what size I now have but I've driven the truck at road speed and it has good braking power, no power assist.
Yes, I bought mine in June 2013. They fit perfect and made a huge difference, even with the booster disconnected. Sure did a fine job when I drove it to Truckstock 13. Just wish the flathead had done as good as the brakes.

.Not perfect but at least they are clean

.
.No smart burgler would come into the barn ifn they saw my burgler trap
.
.
.
.

Wore out two wire brushes in the cleaning process and this time none has found their way into my eye
3 of the rear duel lugs found their way off together thus creating a new challenge,,,used my knife forging kiln to heat and then separate the two pieces it worked quite well,,,progress is slooooow but continuous,,prob won't make it to truckstock like I had wanted but in a relatively short time I am happy with the progress.
Got a meeting with the body-man scheduled for next week and we will formulate a game plan..... told him I want it nice but, it is going to be a truck that will be used and no trailer queen for me!!!!!.
Keep on truckin...
..................Roger

Brake system total overhaul is almost complete,,, I rebuilt the master, all slaves, new hoses, new steel lines,,,but one of the front 1 1/4 slaves bleeder was really buggered up and in the process of drilling it out I went a little too deep and it wond seal. Couldn't locate another sooo I'm gonna order the 1 3/8 tomorrow. Brakes are feeling good though.
Progress,,,slow,,, but still progress.......

Roger, they don't sell the rubber pads separately so you have to buy the rubber bonded to the metal base, they screw on. 7RT2454 for F5 and above, it's 3-1/2" dia.
Almost all the suppliers have then

Mac's #48-18200-1 $9.95
Carpenter #7RT2454- $20.00 PR

resurrection of my build thread.
truck and body parts are back home from body shop.
My computer is fried so I am currently using my daughters laptop to post some new photos of progress.
Progress is real sloooow since I separated my clavicle from my sternum trying to push the bed back on the frame Dr. said 6 to 8 weeks of healing time.
.
.
.
























At this point I had to quit taking pictures and concentrate on finishing the job at hand as this is where I lifted the bed and pushed, resulting in the separated clavicle. Sad thing is ,, the hoist was there and ready to go, but I didn't want to scratch the paint. Yep I'm a *******.

Hey Roger,
What did the docs say on how long you will be out of commission
with your shoulder? There are a couple of pics of the inside of your garage with huge hooks hanging from the ceiling & ropes with nooses, etc. Looks like a set from Texas Chainsaw Massacre!

Hang in there.

Doc said 6 to 8 weeks to heal.
As far as being out of commission, , I am just slowed down. Because I won't stop it will probably take longer to heal. He put me off of work for a week and I cannot sit around any longer. Just doing little things with one arm.
Ifn I had used those hooks and nooses I wouldn't be in this shape.

Roger
