I'm just starting a restore on a 3100 apache. Any opinions on master
cylinders. There are a few options, single original, Duals etc. Don't
think I'll go disc brakes as I'm staying original, not rodding this
with other cars and they can stop real fast these days with anitylock
brakes. I had a pick up with 4 wheel drum and it was worst braking
truck I have ever had. If you are going to tow something heavy or hi
speed they don't do a very good gob of stopping as they get hot and
fade away to nothing. First time it happened to me I got it home after
rear ending another truck [no damage bumpers met ] pulled the Dana 44
out and installed a Dana 44 with disk brakes.
It would be a shame to do all that work to a truck and first ride out
write it off do to fast traffic stop in head of you.
Thanks for the info. As a kid I drove a 58 2.5 ton flatbed and 3 1,5
ton flats fully loaded everyday. I never had problems with full loads
(several tons). Those drums seemed cool. However that was in traffic of
30 years ago...
