Hey guys, No, I have not bought a big truck but a good friend has a 1956 6500 truck and says he can't find wheel cylinders.
Can you guys give me some help.....place, part number ect.

...he's signed up as a bolter but just hasn't mastered the site yet. I'm trying to help....... Mike, 3B, Billy, somebody help.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I was able to purchace re-build kits for all 6 wheel cylinders and the master cylinder, the kits were based on casting numbers on each cylinder. I don't have any of those cylinder numbers available but I could look for the re-build kit numbers. I am lucky enough to have a FLAPS where the guys aren't afraid to get out the old books. They used a Raybestos book.

Generic rebuild kits with rubbers and springs are available on line if you know the bore size of the cylinder. They can be used if the cylinder is not pitted beyond reuse. If the cylinders are really bad and unavailable, they can be sleeved with brass or stainless steel by your local brake warehouse, in Minneapolis that would be Brake and Equipment Warehouse, https://brakeandequipment.com/

Hy Achipmunk, Happy New Year, okay from RockAuto rear wheel cylinders Raybestos p/ns WC18196 and WC18197 both $28.79 USD. The front wheel cylinders are a little trickier, the original design is no longer available, quite some years ago I suggested to a member here that he order and try Raybestos p/ns WC19090 $18.66 USD and WC19091 $19.70 USD. These are wheel cylinders that were designed for the 1960 through 1965, the only difference is the way the flexible brake hose attaches, on the originals the hoses went straight into the wheel cylinders the new wheel cylinders have the hose attachment at an angle, other than that the wheel cylinders are the same in all aspects. Hope that helps.
