Thanks Chet . Looks like my pan is same . It does not have extra hole where exhaust goes threw . That pic of tie piece is enough for me to fab a piece between . Did not know about it going under motor mount .

Thanks, I find it very ironic that it's the same issue as before it was rebuilt...I'm going to wait for my new outer axle seal to arrive, reinstall everything and bleed the brakes.  One more chance and then send back if needed.  I also have a couple other wheel cylinders that I may send to have rebuilt as well for future use if needed.

Tom,

Here is a shot of the driver's side.  Sorry I currently don't have access to get under the car.



Here is a view from the passenger side with flash.



The metal panel seems to be held in place by the front motor mount.

The boots only keep dust and dirt out to minimize wear .The cup inside holds fluid back . You may have a corroded piston . These are aluminum and sometimes the cups do not seal around good enough if bad . I would send back , piston are not ready available , although heard maybe cross to some Chevy 1-1/4" stuff .

General Discussion / Leaking Wheel Cylinder Question
« Last post by racertb on November 21, 2017, 04:24:49 PM »
All:

I had my wheel cylinders re-sleeved and brake shoes relined last year and things have been good.  I decided to mainly do this at the time since my right rear cylinder would occasionally leak and I would just put a new rebuild kit to fix it.  I did this a couple times over the years before having all wheel cylinders re-done last year.

I've taken the car to a few shows over the past few weeks and have driven it a lot.  When I looked in the garage the other day, I noticed some brake fluid on the floor and it was the right rear!  Coincidental?  Ironic?  I don't know...I replaced the rear boot/cap (where it would always leak) since it looked "swollen".  The new boot is more snug, but I think there could be another issue.

I find it strange that it's the same wheel as before I had all this done...is there anything else I should be looking at?  Rear brake shoe position?

For what it's worth, the company who did the work (Brake and Equipment Warehouse in Minnesota) said they would take care of it no problem if I wanted them to re-do it.

Thoughts?

Hey, thanks Chet for clearing that up.  Now I have to find the passenger side pan somewhere.  KMc

You have the Driver's side splash pan.  The passenger side pan has the exhaust pipe running through it.  See mine below.

I have what I think is the passenger side "splash pan" that goes alongside the engine at the oil pan level in my '29 coupe (picture attached).  However, I just have the one and I have no idea what the piece on the other side looks like or even if there is one on the driver's side.  If one of you could send me a picture of the driver's side splash pan, I would appreciate it.  Then I can start looking for a replacement.  Thanks for the help.  Kim Mc
