Rear Brake Rebuild Kit

I am going to pick up a rear brake cylinder rebuild kit. The part
number in the universal listing is WAGNER F33271 JB. NAPA appears to
have 3 that match this part #:
UBP1147
UBP861
UBP107

Are these equivalent, or should I get one specifically?

If your cylinders have not been resleeved with
stainless or brass then you really should have this
done. Send them to the place mentioned in other posts
and they will come back better than new with all the
correct rubber bits.

Mike,

Your e-mail came up as I was watching you in the parade (that is if you were the one on the trailer!). It had probably been there for a few minutes while we were waiting for the parade to move; I checked my mail box as soon as the Amphicars had gone by.

I counted 31, was I correct?

Thanks for the advice. I'll peruse the archives.

Did you reply to my plea for help while *in* the parade?!

The prevailing opinion seems to that White Post is the best place to
get the brake cylinders sleeved. Anyone know the cost for getting both
rears done?

Ive also seen it suggested that the master cylinder should be done as
well. At this point, it looks like I am going to replace the entire
brake system (stainless lines, rubber, re sleeving cylinders). Is it
worth the effort, or is the existing master cylinder probably okay?

Re: Re: Rear Brake Rebuild Kit

No, this has been discussed many times and the prevailing opinion for amphi
brake resleeving is to pay about $50 per wheel to these folks which includes all
new rubber.

Hello Peter,

I like the White Post people and their services. My personal belief
is that brass is a better sleeve material than stainless. Granted,
the stainless is tougher than brass but stainless steel can still
rust and brass can't. Just to complicate things a bit, I like the
brass sleeve jobs at White Post for both the master cylinder and the
slave cylinders but the rubber parts they use on the slave cylinders
are not as good as the parts that Hugh supplies. Hugh's rubber parts
for the wheel cylinders are from Germany and they seem to fit better
than the parts that White Post uses.

I don't understand your desire for stainless steel lines though since
I've never heard of the Amphicar lines failing and, at least on my
two cars, the originals were in good shape and I reused them. Of
course, replace the rubber lines.
