I am in Michigan in the USA,took the wheel cylinders apart,one side on both of them were froze up,cleaned the cylinder with an old 1 inch wire brusg for cleaning copper fittings,wire wheeled the rust off the pistons,put some axle grease on the pistons and they work fine,the brake shoes after looking at them were hacked up to kinda fit,I had a set for a samurai and set them on top of the ones in there and they may work,I might have to put samurai wheel cylinders because the sam shoes are a little longer. going to work on that today and see how it goes,thanks for the reply,Ill let you know how it works

the shoes were cut a little short at the top, and one of the pistons came out, with some adjustment at the bottom adjusters got it to work, the next set of shoes I am sure I can fab them to fit perfectly. thanks again for the reply. We already had it out in the snow wheeling yesterday, Thanks Doug
