1928 Chrysler brake problems

Recommended Posts

Have 1928 4-dr sedan Chrysler that has been sitting for about 8 years. None of the brakes worked at first. After bleeding each of the lines, we got fluid to all four wheels, but only the two back brake-pistons expand when we press the brake pedal. Have the front two cylinders locked up permanently or is there something else we can check? Dad and I are strictly amateurs at this!

Had same problem on my '37 Chrysler. My front cylinders are a step bore and after removing them, I eventually got them apart using penetrating oil and a brass punch. The cylinders cleaned up nicely with a hone so I installed rebuild kits. Unfortunately, over a period of time, fluid would seep out and my pedal was gone. Had to end up buying new cylinders after all.
