Lightningtruck,

You may also check what big brakes you have. Some of the Canadian market brakes where different. I'm not a huge expert, but I believe one of the differences where how many bolts hold the drum to the hub. I make a disc brake conversion kit and one of the kits I shipped did not work on the canadian market truck due to 5 bolts holding the drum on versus the 6 bolts for US market.

Hope that helps a little bit,

R domeck, thanks!
C Pretzer,
You replaced the master and then bleed as per instructions and all is well?
That's awesome!
Your hydro vac is hooked up?
That's a big accomplishment on a big truck.

a lot of the parts for these big trucks (cylinder kits) can be found at either Rock Auto or Napa, as can the flexible brake hoses. Hard lines, make your own, or buy pre-made lengths and bend them yourself.
