    I really want the motor - Real good price - Some stuff has come up with the wife that requires me to move all her crap out of my house in the next 2 months - The way I been ordered to do this will not allow me to even think about getting up there before then - If you find a buyer take it - If not we'll discuss it again.
    Thanks

    john, joblot in queens ny should have the spring, maybe rebuild kits. raybestos has these kits. they are: front cyl kit-wk103 rear cyl kit-wk104 master cyl kit-mk1 it took a bit of time to get these, direct from manufacturer. napa may be able to help with this. i have good used kits if you run into problems. ( this would be last resort) i myself do not trust hardware springs, usually too weak, but i don't know what you found.

    Hi Pete, Well I got into that right rear brake Sat. and found what I thought was the problem. the spring connecting the two shoes was spent. When I stretched it to remove, it didn't spring back to its original length. My spring was sprung. But unfortunately thats not the problem. I replaced the spring (with a makeshift spring from hdwr store) but the shoes are still not retracting when you let off the pedal. So you are quite right about those wheel cylinders. I need to replace/rebuild them. Do you have any leads on these parts that you could recommend? I will definitely be doing both sides in the rear. Thanks, John

    Hi Petey shoes, yes the brakes are working now except that right rear locks up when I apply the pedal. If I'm gentle on the pedal she may not lock up, if I lean on it she'll lock up solid. I throw it in reverse and move the truck just a couple inches she'll unlock instantly. No pedal sticking and no fluid leaks that I can detect any where. Hope to attack this tomorrow, (Sat.) if it warms up enough. The tires are "Hercules HDTL" 8.25x20, Unfortunately two of the six are on 'widow makers' which I will have to deal with at some point. Thanks for the help, I'll keep you posted. John

    Hi Petey shoes, Thanks for checking in. I'm going to do that rear brake this weekend. You mentioned making a new gasket, where is this? Do you mean right under the 8 nuts and cones at the end of the axle? Not sure what i'll find thats causing the wheel to lock up when I apply the brake pedal. Seems to me something in there is shifting. We'll see soon enough. talk to you later, John
