    Just some info for any 1940-49 International KB 1,2 truck owners. The truck I have only needed " the leaky rear wheel cylinders rebuilt" said the previous owner. Now after 1 new master cylinder,2 good stepped wheel cylinder cores from eBay i rebuilt,and after much research found that 1936-1948 ford cars had very similar wheel cylinders ( only mod was a slight angle for the brake line) and available at the Irish parts chain. $40 each. Hope this helps the next guy.

    Welcome from the great white north..,,now lets see some pics of your binder. I see you had to search out wheel cylinders...there is scant little aftermarket for these old trucks. has a complete library for parts,,even part # to put front disc brakes on your stock spindles if you wish.
