Built in America Posted January 30 Report Share Posted January 30 (edited) We’re about to start a break restoration of 2 Dodge 47 steakbeds. A 2 ton and a 1.5 ton. Working through the original mechanical user guide is helpful but we’re looking for more direction. Advice on required specialty tools and any tips on what to look out for. 1. Master cylinder leaks = will find new gasket. 2. break lines are in tact and holding fluid but should be replaced. 3. No pressure at all when pushing down on break peddle. 4. Will pull all 6 wheels (duel on rear) to start them see if bleeder valves can be carefully loosened). Opening question: What is most likely the case why we’re not feeling any back peddle pressure when pushing down on break? **Have yet to inspect drums and pads = likely need full cleaning/restoring.
