Drum brake cylinder

We have been doing a full brake rebuild on the Chevy k20 pickup.
We have replaced everything from the master cylinder,steel lines ,hoses,calipers and all the drum brake parts.
The problem is after getting it all back together the driverside drum brake cylinder is leaking and is not from the flare nut or the bleeder.
So,who makes a good quality drum brake cylinders we used Raybestos cylinders

A bad part is a bad part take it back and have them replace it.. What's the problem with that ?

Raybestos cylinders,l I though they only did shoes, I have had luck with advance auto and woud think Napa would be a good choice also ..

I agree return it for another, See where it goes from there probably just a bad part as stated already.

Most likely during assembly someone nicked a seal. I'd take it back. Mostly I use Wagner drum brake parts, but probably all of them are made in China now and in the same factory and by the same people :pain

(let's see, 1 for Wagner, 3 for Raybestos, two for.....)

If this stuff were easy, everybody would be doing it as I have heard. Besides what else do you have to do with your time .... watch TV .

Consider it the ART of automobiles , a few springs, couple of shoes , two bolts and a nut ... granted the brake fluid can be a pain . But it is not all that bad, it is only a PITA if you allow it to be .. Patience my young friend you can solve this.
