    brakes-49 chrysler -wheel cylinder

    solved the problem the lower wheel cylinder piston was stuck in the outward position pushing the right brake out at the bottom --after I pushed it in (and it released brake fluid in my eye) hub and brake linings were ok - and new top wheel cylinder was closer to the brake shoe and didn t leak (so far) thanks rusty and keiser u r a lifesaver

    49 chrysler rear brake adjustment

    Hello again how do you adjust rear brakes on 49 Chysler royal? They work but hub is getting hot and I think they are grabbing and not letting go, restricting wheel free turning.. I don't see a hole in the back that turns the spindle to adjust them with the brake tool Thank you

    1949 chrysler royal woodie for sale only $59,000

    I'm just on aaca to get help on rebuilding and selling my 49 Chrysler Royal Woodie I've had the utmost pleasure of dealing with Rusty o toole. bob Harwood and many other that have helped me immensely. I ve learned so much here and actually bought parts from some members with great response. Most people have been very nice -some hatefully degrading and offering no solution most very helpful I know I need criticism but that makes me better Thanks to everybody on this forum that makes it better and a learning tool not a condemnation of the hard work we do
