    Does anyone know where I can get a set of 4 wheel cylinders? Ive found some rebuild kits, but mine are badly stuck and Im afraid I might destroy them in disassembly. Any possible alternatives, like Buick regal/S10 or something? I also want to switch to a duel res master cylinder, any advice on a 4wheel drum compatible unit that has right hand outputs. Ive heard that an early 70s mustang/comet/maverick master might work. Trying to keep the budget down, at least at this stage, its a true barn find that hasn't been started since the early 80s, till last weekend lol. So as of now Im looking at cheap fixes of what I got and worry about upgrades later.

    There is N O Inexpensive alternative unfortunately, for the front wheel cylinders... I have found something that works just beautifully for the naturally high priced rears...
    I also have N.O.S. ++ Asbestos ++ Front & Rear Brake Shoes ...
    And a whoooooole lot more!!!!

    A) Sleeving them in stainless steel would be far more expensive than the NEW wheel cylinders -- particularly on the Rears......
    B) white post DOES NOT do stainless, they are ONLY equipped to do brass sleeving, which is cheaper, but so is the quality.
    C) Always best to go NEW, if you can.....
    And with these, with me, you CAN......
    But D)
    ( I haven't heard from him, yet......)
    Yours, Craig.
