Looking for 1972 Winnebago M400 Rear Brake Adjusting screw
« on: October 05, 2017, 04:00 PM »
Anyone have a parts winnie laying around, and interested in scrapping out some old brake components? I'm looking for an adjuster screw on one of the rear brake cylinders. I unfortunately misplaced one, and before making a new component, I thought I'd see if there are any salvaged parts out there. 

Thanks in advance
Mike

Not sure if he'll see this so, I suggest you send a PM to:

RANGERRICK

He gets a menagerie of parts and can often times help out with some of these types of rare critters.  He's on the site frequently, even earlier today.

I'm puzzled that the M400 book I got for these years showed different braking system??

While in 1972 Dodge used the "M4" designation, it is mapped to the M375 chassis which is what uses that Rear Brake Adjuster for 14.21"x3" brake systems.  The M400 you thought it was is actually the RM400 chassis which was not produced until late 1973.
