And try a REAL parts store, you will be amazed at what some regular old parts stores (the REAL ones that serve the repair shops in town not the McParts stores like the Zone) have right there in stock!

I have been blown away over and over at what a good parts store will stock buried back there in their shelves. The drums, forget it, but the wheel and master cyl, shoes and hoses, they will surprise me often.

Just for fun I went to Raybestos (click here) just grabbed my phone and called the local REAL parts store (in my case Allied auto parts) and simply asked for part number for a left front wheel cylinder number WC14493, they have one in stock $18.85.

This is NOT a classic cars part store, this is simply a real parts store that serves the shops in town.

I didn't want to waste the guys time but I am sure I could asked for all the others and they would have had them, along with the master and hoses and probably shoes!

And this same advice goes for all the mechanical parts on your car. Try the parts store first, things like switches and sending units and stuff like that, you will be amazed at how much is still available for these old cars thru your regular outlets for parts for a 2005 Honda or Ford, they are sitting next to one an other on the shelf.
