And the next thing you know, you have the entire wheel assemblies ripped off and working on them... When I bought my truck a couple months ago, I just got most of the registration done, but the brakes didn't work and I can't get it to the scale to be weighed or the DMV to get the VIN verified. I am paid in full, so no worries there and not driving the truck on the street... Like everything 72+ years old, bolts and nuts are rusted, everything is covered in clay and mud on the underside, one side I couldn't get the bleeder screw off even using a torch to heat up the plate/cylinder around the valve after I removed the tire and line...no go, but I got it all disassembled. One side had a completely disintegrated shoe and the other fell on the ground when I finally got the cylinder loosened pulled it open. I brought everything home to clean up and refurbish, I stripped one castle nut with my impact, one bleeder valve is still stuck, and I don't have any shoes. Drums don't look too bad, I'll need to measure them. No big lip on them, I think they can be reused. Since it's a '46 it was originally shipped with caged bearings. I'd like to upgrade them to roller bearings, but I can always do that later. and the bearings don't look bad at all. Plenty of grease in them, but one hub cover was missing also... I'd like to upgrade to Bendix, but I can think about that later. I would be more inclined to upgrade to a T-5 trans before that, but I have plenty to do even before I get to that point. Any tips on where to get good shoes? Anyone grind them around the SF Bay area? I need to check that out...I have most of the parts, I have new brake lines, springs (only 1 per side on the fronts), and all hardware. Master cylinder was upgraded by the previous owner, so it has a dual reservoirs for front and rear. Would be nice if I could take my drums to someone that could turn them and grind the shoe arc for them, anyone know a shop that will do that?
