Re: '50 chevy 3100

I got to thinking... my master cylinder hasn't had any fluid in it for 18 months. What are the chances it isn't good? And the booster should be good though right?

Thinking I might get a new MC just to have all new brake stuff. The donor one from c10 should be just fine or is there a better option? Donor had same rear end and disc brakes too.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Parking brake cable in! I had to get another cable, pretty cheap though, because swaging a new end didn't work. After some remeasuring I got another 84 c10 cable and this time made a bracket and put it in the right spot. Unfortunately measuring twice and cut once didn't work me lol and I had to cutvit and reweld the bracket.

Parts used.

Parts from donor, 1984 c10 long bed.

Parking brake cable assembly. Mounted just like it was in c10.

Cable for same c10, overall length 89.5 inches.

Rear axle from 84 along with the parking brake cables that came with it.

Rear cable bracket from c10 used. On c10 the bracket was mounted under frame but I moved it to inside of frame due to difference in leaf springs.

Lastly the ugly bracket I made. It works, now I will paintbit when I get some more black paint.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

I wouldnt worry about the master cylinder after 18 months, but make sure you bench bleed it before putting it in.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

I called nearest oriellys and a reman with a warranty was 32 bucks. Figured why not, and I have a all new brake system except for the rear shoes.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

haha probably a good call to replace, i always float between the thought that the ONE Part I DONT replace will be bad, and the thought that replacing ALL the parts increases the odds of getting a defective part. its maddening to be me sometimes.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Me and my wife have been pretty busy lately with all the inservice days. New procedures, refreshers, sexual harassment, ethics, new testing... on and on.

Decided to get in some time today. Jacked up the truck and got the wheels off, put on the reman MC, and got the new flexible brake line on the rear. I'm hoping tomorrow to get the brakes bleed. I bought the little screw in piece for the proportioning valve. Does this mean I can bleed the brakes until it feels right and then pop off the little screw in piece and go?
