Title: Wheel Cylinders
Post by: Rob Molloy on June 16, 2009, 06:58:01 PM
As I am researching parts for my 59 Saratoga until it gets here, I do know that it needs a new rear wheel cylinder. I'm planning on just replacing both rears at the same time. I want to make sure it's the right part though. Is this the one I'm looking for guys? http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=966535 (http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=966535)

They look a lot like the ones from Rock Auto...(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)
 
Try shopping around and see what you can get for pricing.

The front wheel cylinders wont work on mine. The previous owner put disk brakes on it :) Thank you for finding the rears! It looks like the ones I found will work, just need to find them for a lower price. The ebay one might be the one I get. Fathers day!!! HAHAHAHA!!!!

I agree. Go Raysbestos. The offshore junk will leak after a while and soak your shoes.Especially if the car is not driven often.

Will do guys! Thanks for the info. Yeah, I don't need another leak. I only have one leaking right now, and non of the brakes work...well, the parking brake does. Does anyone have input on shoes to get? Haven't done too much research on this one YET, but I figure if I have the brakes apart, might as well do everything at once.

You haven't many options on the shoes.  I am not sure you can even buy them anymore, but you can look around or have someone local reline them.
 
I found the Rayobestis wheel cylinders on Rockauto.com, but no brake shoes.  If Rock doesn't have them. . .
 
You can try Andy Burnbaum  http://www.oldmoparts.com/ (http://www.oldmoparts.com/)
 
I found his page with the brakes  http://www.oldmoparts.com/g.htm (http://www.oldmoparts.com/g.htm)  but you will need to talk to him.  It doesn't specify front or rears.  A bit pricey, but he has them.
 
Just a note about Andy. . . He is one Arrogant SOB.  But he is reliable and delivers.  If there is something wrong, he will take care of it.  You should be prepared with the drum and shoe demensions when you call.  Not sure if the fronts and rears are the same.
 
By the way, you need a special puller for the rear drums.  If you can't rent one locally, let me know.  I can loan you mine.  Just pay the shipping.
 
When you call them, Tell them Steve Hobby from Jorsey sent you and you heard about him on MoparFins.
