Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: I need to know what company this is ,,so I can

[QUOTE=Andy4639;8285164]Speedway motors may can help you.

Yes Andy..this is the almost the same exact Caliper I have ,,the difference is mine has a capitol letter H just before the Airheart symbol ..the working parts are the same...I am rebuilding it with new O-rings,piston and that funny crooked washer that goes over the pilot pin

The master cylinder is coming today or tomorrow,,I had to buy that new ,,but the Calipers brake is worth rebuilding

I got my parts from Tolomatic in Minnesota

Here is some history of the Airheart brakes systems

Bell autoparts introduced a brake system in the late 60ies
Bob Airheart started making the brake system around 1962
Bob sold out to Hurst and he went to work with Crager
So it was Hurst/Airheart brakes in 1966 and into 1967

Now it is others who sell the brake system with the Airheart name on it ..

It is good to know about other places to get parts as Tolomatic tells me that they have no new caliper housings ,,only parts.

They sold a lot of these master cylinders and calipers for Go-Carts back in the day ..
