You can get wheel cylinders and master cylinder pretty easily. The booster you're going to have to put in the mail or buy a rebuild kit off the internet.

There is a bunch of factory documentation for changing tires on factory wheels. Logging chain wrapped around it is a good safety precaution. Initial inflation is the more dangerous part. There is only certain advice regarding those wheels allowed here - but I was able to confidently put new tires on my truck.

Struck out multiple times today. Called two Schrader locations, Saginaw Truck parts (a medium/heavy truck salvage yard), a couple local yards, tire shops... no one had any 6 lug 22.5 wheels or even any suggestions of where I could call. No one even knew any yards that deal in medium duty buses, box trucks, etc, either. I haven't called the bus garages yet but most buses that are in operation around here are the newer 10 lug stuff from what I see on the roads. There aren't any older buses in operation around here and most garages don't have room to store any obsolete parts that they can't use, they usually scrap that stuff for beer money. I know people have found these wheels but what I am reading online all seems to be 10-15 year old posts about how plentiful these are (or were). My guess is when scrap steel was way up 10-12 years ago a lot of these got turned into cash.

I will keep looking but sounds like I am going to be kind of forced into learning how to deal with these widowmakers for now and keep my eyes and ears open for some wheels or swap out the I beam and rear end for some more modern 10 lug stuff.

Read the factory documentation for your wheels. Rust at the mating/locking surfaces is a problem that significantly increases the danger. You won't know how badly they are deteriorated until you break them down. If they are badly corroded, they wont lock back together the way they were designed. You can PM me for other questions.

are the military style split ring 20" wheels any better? I am finding those for pretty reasonable prices (shipping will probably hurt but oh well)

If the military rims are a multi piece lock ring type they are still serviceable...there are millions of them still on the road. The RH-5's are the only one's that I know of that are no longer legal, they have the 2" wide raised band running around the center of the rim...if they have a lock ring out at the tire bead they are NOT RH-5's and are OK to use.

Remember ALL multi piece rims need to be inflated in a safety cage...be safe! If you aren't comfortable mounting this type of tire get professional help...

I haven't started looking for master or wheel cylinders yet, or bearings for that matter. Probably be best to start a new post asking that, or maybe a search of all posts.

Hy hippydave, the Napa part number for a re-manufactured master cylinder for your 58 Viking 60 is NMC P21698 $46.49, their part number for a new master cylinder is NMC M21698 $154.49, there was no mention of core costs. It is not the best idea to tag onto someone elses post and ask questions, please start your own posts, there is a better chance your questions will be noticed and answered, hope that helps.
