1972 dodge 375 chassis rear wheel brake cylinders
« on: April 15, 2019, 09:23 AM »
I'm trying to match up some rear wheel cylinders for my D24C winnebago. The ones on there work but leak really bad so I need a rebuild kit, refurbished or new cylinders. Anyone know where I can buy some or a company that will rebuild the ones I have?

Back when I had a 72 with a 413 engine, I found all my brake parts at Alretta Truck Parts.  They are listed in the members area, but the link doesn't work.

This link in the members area does work though...they can rebuild your wheel cylinders.

I found the link for Alretta Truck Parts.  They have everything you could possibly need for any hydrolic brake system.

Then he better order his wheel cylinders right away...lol!  I also suggest that if you have one of these old Dodge eyebrow Winnies and you think you might need a master cylinder some day...order one while you can.

I just replaced both of mine a few weeks ago. Ours is a 74 Brave.


I found them on Rock Auto. Can't image they are much different from what I needed.


Went there and looked around under 1972 D300 pickup and they have them. You may need to look under W300 or B300


Usually it takes some internet detective work to find the part numbers.


One of the wheel cylinders on ours was leaking and the other one looked ok but I replaced it anyway.


The Brave brakes like new now.


BTW have you ever torn into the rear hub before?
