Hy Dixon, could you tell us the diameter of your front brake drums and the width of your front brake shoes. The inside diameter of your wheel cylinders will also tell you what you have and what to purchase to replace them, good luck.

Hy Dixon, it appears your truck has the 7000 lb. front axle and your wheel cylinder bore is actually 1.125". the wheel cylinders are Raybestos part numbers WC8852 and WC8853 both are $18.75 United States dollars at Rockauto, hope that helps.

great, thank you very much for your help.
Just ordered them, so the truck will soon be running again and I can soon drive around again.
Thank you.

Greetings Brian

Rock auto.
They did not list them as an application for my son’s 46 2 ton.
Though the bore size listed was the same as was on my truck.
So I ordered them and they were a perfect match in every way.

Perhaps you could post the Rock Auto part numbers you purchased and maybe post a picture or two of the new wheel cylinders???

the parts have arrived. Attached are the pictures for the passenger side and driver side.
The cylinders look good. Maybe I will get around to installing them soon. Thanks to all

Greetings Brian
