Ok i went to get another brake cylinder and none i have found will work.i tried alot of places and tried npd and they have a different one as well. the cylinder is 2 and 7/8 boot to boot. i was given a 3" and it would not work. the brakes would not close enough to clear the rotor even fully adjusted in. the brakes are hitting the cylinder. i compared the cylinder to the other front brake and it is the same 2 and 7/8. the brakes are also the exact replacements for the shoes so the brakes are not the problem. im thinking ill have to rebuild the cylinder but there is no rebuild kit for the style i have. im going to order the bendix brand and see if it will work. never thought a cylinder could shrink over time and the new replacements grew to big lol
