I could not find the adjuster. Is it the largest nut on the top of the drum?

Disregard my previous question it was at the bottom that had a cover on it. I have taken the entire assembly for the front passenger drum brake off. How do I take part the wheel cylinder that is activated by the hydraulic brakes. Thanks

I would just buy new wheel cylinders do not worry about taking them apart. Best to replace all of that. Here is all the part numbers you will need.

Brake Part Numbers.

Front Brake Hose: Wagner F24070, Raybestos BH19015, NAPA UP 36794
This hose is 14.1 inches long.

Master Cylinder: Wagner 3081, Raybestos MC3081, NAPA UP 3081
Master Cylinder Repair Kit: NAPA UP 138

Right Front Wheel Cylinder(1 1/8 inch bore): Wagner 18291, Coni-Seal WC13221, Bendix 33221, NAPA UP 18291

Left Front Wheel Cylinder(1 1/8 inch bore): Wagner 18290, Coni-Seal WC13220, Bendix 33220, NAPA UP 18290

Right Rear Wheel Cylinder(11/16 inch bore): Wagner 59241, Coni-Seal WC13601, Bendix 33601, NAPA UP 17509

Left Rear Wheel Cylinder(1 1/8 inch bore): Wagner 59240, Coni-Seal WC13600, Bendix 33220, NAPA UP 17510

Front Axle Seal: Chicago Rawhide CR15960, National 482253, NAPA NOS 15960

Outer Rear Axle Seal: Chicago Rawhide CR17310, NAPA NOS 17310, Victor 62010

Rear Brake Shoes NAPA TS TS55

Front Brake Shoes NAPA UP AE338

Front Inner Bearing race Timken 15123 NAPA BRG BR15123
Front Inner Bearing cup Timken 15245 NAPA PGB PBR15245
Front Outer Bearing race Timken 09067 NAPA BRG BR09067
Front Outer Bearing cup Timken 09195 NAPA BRG BR09195
Front Seal National 42364S NAPA NOS 15649

I would suggest if you do not want to go to NAPA you give Russ Maas at call at 21st century Hudsons as they now stock all the brake parts for reasonable price.

For mine I took my old brake shoes and had them religned and arc's to the drums as my guy skimmed the drums. Best fit best function after this.

I am one of those people who support Napa because they have a good parts supply and return time. I will order the parts tomorrow morning.

The part numbers you gave me for Napa for the left and right rear cylinders are not found on the website

Use the Wagner and cross ref the part numbers to your area. Sometimes they change they will always have cross ref # for bendix and Wagner.

Yes I meant the generator, sorry my fault. I had it professionally rebuilt, I was just trying to find out which terminals where labeled what so that I can hook it up to the voltage regulator. Also I will be rebuilding the front end shortly. I was wondering if you knew anyone who made a complete rebuild kit. I would hate to give my business to Kanter, but they one of the better complete kits. Thanks

On the generator you will have a Armature (A) and Field (F) if its the stock generator in the installed position the A terminal will be on the top and the F terminal will be on the block side angled in. Caveat being I have not seen this generator so I cannot tell. But stock Hudson gen will have one terminal up and one around from it on the side.

Call Randy Maas for frontend parts as he has sourced these parts plus has updated parts for the center steering. He has spring sources and is very knowledgeable and good prices. Kanter is over priced. You can source the shocks at NAPA

Yes I have one terminal on the direct top which is a 1/4 inch bolt the other is a 5/9 inch at a 45 degree angle to the inner fender.

Yes they are a bit over priced at Kanter $395.00 for a normal kit.

Also good call for me to just by the wheel cylinders, I spent $24 for all four and saved me a few hours of time.

One thing you never do is mess with brake parts. You replace everything you can and make sure everything is working to 100% spec. This is not a shade tree mechanic thing. Stopping your car is a priority in my books. I see people nickle and dime this and I scratch my head.

Tell me what front end parts you want to replace and I will post part numbers.

Also on your gen the larger bolt is the A terminal the smaller one is F on a stock gen. Do not know about this rebuild but I would think its big one A smaller one F

I contacted the guy who rebuilt the generator he said he just replaced the brushes and bearing and did not alter anything else. So I believe it would be in the stock set-up.

For the front end I am just looking for the rubber bushings that go on the bottom and top of the steering bar. I'm talking about the joint that connects the front wheel and hub to the steering bar that runs under the car, which moves when you steer. Thanks

So you need:

Tie rods
Stabilizer bar bushings
Center steering kit

Those are minimum for safety and tight steering
