Questions: The master cylinder with this kit - which brake line kit for a '48 CJ2A do I order? One says early with threaded master v. none threaded? From the image, I am guessing it is the none threaded brake line kit?
Question By: Don on Jun 23 2020 11:39 AM
If you are the early A556 threaded master cylinder you need MS00001 if you are the later 805223 master cylinder you need part number MS00002

Questions: I have ‘48 CJ2A with original drum brakes. What steps are required to separate the old drums from the hubs and install the new drums onto the hubs? Do I need to purchase new hubs also if I use this Brake#3 overhaul kit? Thanks Steve

For the rear, the best thing to have is a hub puller (HP600). For the front, you will need a socket (A692) and a front hub puller (HP700). Thanks

Questions: Do you carry brake backing plates (full set of four) for a CJ3A or an M38? Not sure if the 3A and M38's backing plates are interchangeable or not??? I have a CJ3A chassis with an M38 tub that I am putting together, but when I pulled the wheels to do new brake systems, but the backing plates don't match either CJ3A or M38. I have new cylinders, pads, springs, lines and hoses that came with the project. Thanks.

That is unoriginal. They always were 9 front and rear. We probabaly have the 10 parts on the shelf too.
