54 Chrysler wheel cylinder kit

Recommended Posts

The car is a 1954 New Yorker with 2 brake wheel cylinders on each front wheel.

It looks like the top cylinder and the bottom cylinder take a different seal kit.

There's 2 kits available and labeled as top and bottom.

Is this correct?  Seems like all 4 would use the same kit.

Thanks for any help.  Joe

They all should use the same kit......although there are three different types of pistons used depending on who made the cylinders. That requires different rubber piston cups....

I'd re-sleeve or buy new. New Chinese cylinders are questionable as for fit and leakage in a year or two.

Done many of these jobs over the years.

Those "halfsie" wheel cylinders are a pain in the neck to rebuild.

Most people just go brand new -- and I have them brand new -- all six of them -- the four (4) Front "halfsies" and the two (2) Rears.

And also -- brake shoes, brake Hoses, and a whoooooooole lot more....

 

Always best to simply call me -- Craig -- 516 - 485 - 1935......

My brand new are USA made -- no issues, no problems. Life is good.
