Does anyone know if the brake cylinders for a 1951 GMC 2 ton truck are available from auto parts stores such as NAPA? Part numbers? As far as I know there are ones for the front wheels and two different ones for the rear wheels.

Thanks,

Hy dsword, please use the series number of your truck rather than the term "2 ton", it makes it easier to pinpoint the parts you are looking for.

To answer 3B, the truck is a 1951 GMC 354-24. I think that is comparable to the Chevrolet 6000 series.

Thanks,

3B,
Thanks for the numbers. I went to Napa and they were able to find the part but they were not readily available. Went to a Carquest outlet and they had the listings but could not get them. I ended up ordering from Chevs of the 40s which is fairly local to me. Their prices are about the same as Napa.

Don't trash the old ones. They can usually be relined with a stainless steel sleeve by a competent machinist.

Would this also be true for a 46 with a two -speed rear end or are they totally different?
Thanks

Norman,
Do you have two cylinders per wheel, or just one? Chevs of the 40s only shows up to 1-1/2 ton for 1936-1950.
