Moose ,I have left a request about stuck rear brakes a few days ago. I solved that problem by grinding off the backside of the locator pins so i could wiggle the drum around enough to get it loose. I need correct imfo. ( year & model used on all the brake stuff ) I took my grease seal in to the parts store thinking it was for a dodge heavy truck .( all my imfo. got the best i could from the website) The listing they had for the dodge was no where near the right size and what they thought would be was for a heavy chevy. I got a hardware kit for the chevy. and was not right, nor are the wheel cylinders. No one could find a cylinder in 7/8 cup size that had the same size as mine in the outside rubber ends. Are these things put together with what ever they had at the time.(some dodge’s some chevy.) Cold weather is about ready to bust loose anytime so i need to get’r dun . Please,Please HELP Anyone!!! 1967 yr.

Hey Lonnie! Sorry I missed your last post. Yes, all the parts on the Cortez come from whatever off the shelf items they found that would fit the purpose. And yes, the brake parts are Chevy, Ford and Dodge. I upgraded the wheel cylinders to 1″ based on one of the articles. The right wheel cylinder is Raybestos wc7564, and the left is Raybestos wc7563. They fit a 71 Dodge W300 or 71 GMC G3500 Van. The Brake Spring Kit is AcDelco # 18K571 and fits 76-80 Dodge D200. The brake shoe “C” washer is Bendix H1177 and fits a 99 Dodge durango. Anything else you need?
Moose… I found new cups,the old cylinder didn’t look bad,just did some reaming & reassembled. Doesn’t seem to be leaking! I moved it back & forth, everything seems good. I just found a hardware kit that had 2 in. pins & used all my old hardware. That’s why i bought this relic i like the idea of being able to repair it myself. Although i don’t know what I’m going to do about working on the front end. Looks like a real nightmare. Not only working on any of it but all the special tools required!!! It was odd that most things i found that would work (chevy/dodge) were all for the new years then what i needed . The years i thought i needed didn’t work . Myself and several parts guys were very confused on how parts from 70’s&80’s is what i needed. Multiple applications is what i heard alot. Thanks i have it for the future. Can you share anything on the front brakes. They’ll probably be next. I don’t seem to be able to run an ad. I’m still having a problem , when I’m all done and try to submit, it always comes up to enter the price. I’ve tried in block form and numeral form. The tech. guy here at library says it’s not a problem on this end. I guess i need your e mail again. I didn’t write it down last fall when you offered to run it for me. Thanks again!!!
