Questions: My master cylinder is a Wagner FD-4564, which overhaul kit do i need?
Question By: JT Donovan on Dec 21 2020 12:13 AM
The best way to tell is by checking your old master cylinder to see if the front mounting hole is threaded (if so, early) or if both mounting holes are threaded (late). Thanks

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
Question By: Steve Phalen on Oct 14 2018 12:43 PM
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.
