1929 REO Speedwagon brakes


Recommended Posts

Not sure if the trucks use the same as the cars but napa has most of the parts for the car brake systems.  I would also recommend joining the REO Club of America and you will have contact with other speedwagon owners for help.  PM me for an application to join. dave

Any idea where I can find brake parts for this truck?

Great looking truck. 

What is the year? Does it have hydraulic brakes?

Great platform for a stakebed. This a 29 Dodge Bros 3/4 ton.

Check on having them resleeved. I had my master cylinder resleeved but was able match wheel cylinders at Napa.

Do you have the reservoir for brake fluid on the fire wall as mine. Here is a pic of my master cylinder.

Thanks for the idea of resleeving. That will work for the wheel cylinders. My master cylinder is not original, a previous owner grafted on a modern one ( I think its called corvette style) but it is not pushing sufficient brake fluid.

I am going to try one with a ( larger) 1 1/4 " bore
