Continued work on the rear suspension, differential and brakes.



  • Replaced all the brake lines.  Everything is new back to the master cylinder.


  • Greased the axle bearings.

  • Filled the differential with oil.

  • I used spray paint to touch up the areas I couldn't get to with a brush when I painted the undercarriage and differential.   The pink spots in the pictures are primer not rust.

  • Replaced the brake cylinders.

  • The Ammco 1750 tool made easy work out of getting the brake shoes setup and aligned properly to the brake drum.  Definitely worth the investment.
