    Will a brake cylinder from the front of a drum brake setup fit a rear drum brake setup? Getting ready to do a FDB conversion, & now I have a leaking rear cylinder. TIA.

    As I recall, on my 73, the front drum cyls were double side actuated where as the rear only is actuated on one side.

    Don't think it'll work right. ;)
