Technical / Re: Disassembling the Old froze Brake Cylinders
« Last post by Charles Adamson on November 21, 2017, 10:57:16 PM »
I use a C clamp with a 11/16 socket on one end and a larger socket on the other end so the piston can come out.
The prior soaking helps loosen the cylinders.

In my opinion, I would first fill the inside with a penetrating oil and maybe even soak it in penetrating oil over night.
Then I'd use a press to push everything out one side .  I'm not a fan of using a hammer if a press is available.

220 / Re: WTB: 1952 220 Release Bearing
« Last post by Henry Magno on November 20, 2017, 10:21:32 AM »
I have solved this problem by using a later MB release bearing and modifying the housing, using a special seal and some machining of the carrier. The set up gives you a sealed bearing which eliminates central lube oil from the clutch area. Contact me if you are interested in having this done.

I should say, however, that I worked this out because there was no bearing available at the time. I don't know what Niemoeller is currently offering, if anything. They may now have something that works well and is a direct install.

I found my receipt.  I had mine done in 2010 by:

Brake & Equipment Warehouse, Inc.
455 Harrison St, NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413
(612) 378-3141, (800) 233-4053

I was pleased with the quality of the work.
Maybe others reading this have additional experiences or references?

Thanks for the reply. May have to look into the relining option. Honing did not do the trick!

I had all my wheel cylinders and the master cylinder bored and sleeved in stainless steel.  They were very well done!

Looking for a useable fuel tank for my 49' 170v project and a drivers side headlight base. My fuel tank is dented in and rusted out pretty bad. Beyond my skill to repair.
Also looking for two front wheel brake cylinders. Tried to rebuild mine,but they are too far gone with pitting etc.
