Dave I have a little bearing trouble.My seal came out of the back of the hub and snow,dirt and water got in and ruined the roller bearing.Fortunately classicparts sells just one bearing.no one else would sell anything but the whole kit for $175.I am just waiting on UPS to deliver the new bearing.On a different subject I also did the power brake conversion.I will post a couple pictures of mine from under the truck to give you an idea of the clearance issues.I used the kit from brothers trucks.It comes completely assembled, you just have to mount it and run the brake lines.It mounted in the same bolt holes the stock master came out of and uses the stock pedal assembly.I run a stock parking brake so I had to move the pulley for the cable back but it was a simple thing to do.While I was at it I put in a line lock and a pressure activated brake light switch too.
