Brake System Release Charts

All -

Found these during our recent house move; These are the actual charts that were used by the design engineers to release the various brake components to the many different variants of pickup and utility vehicles.

They can answer questions about which rotor, caliper, wheel cylinder, etc were used, right down to the part number level as well as bore sizes, dimensions and description of friction material.

I am hoping these will be a handy reference as we have brake system questions. These documents would have been the "gold source" for all brake information, and any production, service or marketing info would have flowed out from these.

I am attaching the chart for the 1974 C/K trucks, and the 1987 R/V trucks.

Re: Brake System Release Charts

I had need to access the '77 chart (K20 specifically).

Posting them here for future reference.
