Well, looking to see what it might cost me to fix up the brakes on my recently acquired 64 FJ45. I've worked on drum brakes on older cruisers in the past and never enjoyed it very much. The brake pedal on the truck goes right to the floor, I don't see any leaks anywhere (of course the master was empty). If I keep drum brakes I'd like to replace all the wheel cylinders with new ones so I don't have to worry about trying to free up adjusters that are frozen. Can I still buy new or reman wheel cylinders anywhere? And is there an easy upgrade to replacing the master cylinder? Any input is appreciated. Thanks, Gary

I have serviced these without removing them from the truck. Simply disassemble, clean, hone with brake fluid, and source some new cups and boots. Its the easiest and cheapest way to get back on the road.
Post up as a new owner ya lazy bastard!
Gary, I replied in your classifieds thread.
