Again thanks for all the responce. I pull the first wheel and everything underneath is almost new. Bearings had new grease, shoes where good and the cylinders are also new. I inspected the lines and they are fine too. Lucky me. The master cylinder is a different story. Too far gone to fix.
Now if I can just find someone to help me bleed these lines.

I bought new for my 58 half ton from Auto zone for around $9.00 for the rear and I think the front were $12.00 out of the box ready to go. They were on the shelf no special order.

Don't trash the old master cylinder. It can be bored out and relined with a stainless steel sleeve that will last about three days past forever.

Don, run by your favorite Parts Store and ask the manager (not one of the snot nosed kids) where to get it done. He/she just might have the perfect place. If that fails, reach out to your local cars clubs for recommendations. Good luck. shake

Good idea. Been going to Napa. This day and age it's our best shot.

Don Huffer Speed Bleeders are the easiest way I have found to bleed the brakes. Here is a link to a disscussion on them awhile back.

I wanted my date coded original so I sent mine to White Post, it was back in a little over a week. It is beautiful, they do really good work. I won't have to worry about it in my lifetime. They also did an original Corvette and Camaro m/c for me.
