Dell that's a valid option. But currently looking for OTC options on the wheel cylinders. Not knowing the specifics of what is in there currently (aka bore size) and what has already been replaced with other parts, it's just easier to start fresh, for me anyway.

No idea if the rear cylinders with proper size tube ports for the larger Packard tubing are are still made so that will be for someone else to say. For whatever reason Kanter could not supply any for my 47 so they chose to ship adapters along with new cylinders as part of a full rebuild kit. Adapters threaded right in on both sides and only added about 1/2" in length which was easily taken care of with a slight rebend of the tubing ends where it comes up from the top of the rear axle.

Probably because of the way they mount the 47 master was also not available anymore but Kanter had those repro'd some years back and was a perfect fit. I think yours may be the same style if not the same master so probably also NLA.

Kanter shows every being available. Just was trying to see if there was a local option. Perhaps a full kit from them is the easier option. One throat to choke if something doesn't fit.

Original rear wheel cylinders were Wagner FD2863 and FD2864, L/R with 15/16" bore..
These used a brass fitting to adapt to the inverted flare on the steel brake line.
