I have the two flex lines for the front. Need the rear. Is the rear the same as the front flex lines? Has anyone crossed these to a more recent application? Thanks in advance. Steve

Bleed those brakes! 53 Clipper

Rebuilt master cylinder plus replaced rear axle seals. Adjusted rear shoes. Brake lines fully open. I benched primed the master cylinder. Squirted 1/2 way across the garage. Had a vacuum brake bleeder that I thought I would try. Worked half way...still no brake pedal. I use to have a helper pump three times and hold. Work from farthest wc from master cylinder to the closest wc. Does that work on Packards? Looking for suggestions. I am using Dot 4 fluid

53 Clipper Brake fluid and anti-seize

Tall Steve
I was going to use dot 3 to service my brake system. Notice that I have synthetic dot 3. Is that ok to use? Or should I find non-synthetic?

Also what is recommended to use on the star adjusters for the brake shoes? Looking for something to use as an anti seize for that.

53 Packard Brake Master Assy

All, I finally got the master cylinder apart. The back washer was corroded in place. Trouble is that I have one rubber washer that I am unsure of where it goes. The repair kit didn’t include a schematic. Please see the pictures below. It’s a flat rubber washer. I think it may go in first and the the spring. What day ye?

I need the front left brake line exiting the master cylinder. As well, I need the brass fitting that connects to the master cylinder and that brake lines attach to. Anyone help me out with those?
