wheel cylinders
 
trying to figure out what front wheel cyls are on my coupe. there are casting numbers and delco cast on the cyl. there are adjuster rings on both ends of the wheel cylinders. does anyone know of a site that i could cross these casting numbers over to the application to what they originally came off of

If you go to a REAL parts store (not a "McStore") they will usually be able to run the number and come up with what they are.

Just for grins Google the casting number and the word Delco and see what you get. I have great luck tracking down parts and prices using this simple method. Give it a shot.

Early chevy may be what you have.
48 and earlier chevy fronts were 1 1/4", rears 1 3/16"
49-50 chevy fronts were 1 5/16", rears 1 1/8"
fronts had a right and left side.

maybe you're doesn't because of the attude you start off with before even walking in the place..
and/or expect an answer asap..
When we have a customer walk in or call, we ask them to call back in a hour or so.. and the regulars have no issue with that.. as they know, the meat and potato's of the parts biz. is todays cars and the shops fixing them..

thanks for the photo seltec8 those pictured shure look like the ones on my coupe.i will check at parts store for availability.would you happen to have a part number? Thanks Again

seltec8 10-12-2012 06:32 AM

No p/n just a application. Thats called a huck brake you might also check changing to the later (thru 54) dual servo, they would be a better brake and probably cheaper.

DO NOT DISS MARTINSR noob!! He has been here a long time and has contributed much more than i have. I respect him. I also agree with him, I owned and ran a corvette shop for 30 years in SF before retiring in 2000. In the old days parts guys knew their *******, we had no time to waste. they had a big rack of parts books and could give you an answer on the most obscure parts in one minute.

You kids at the kragens/ mcdonalds parts store have no clue. If you can't look it up on the computer you are lost.

Case in point--What is the starter motor# for a 1973 pantera??

checked parts stores today 49-50 cyls not available.i may try 51 to see if they mount the same.they would be 1/16 smaller bore size. how much braking power would i loose by going to smaller wheel cyl?

seltec8 10-12-2012 12:31 PM

Chevy changed to the dual servo brakes in 51. All those parts (chevy thru 54, corvette thru 62) hubs, drums, backing plates etc. would be a bolt on for the older chevy. Some of those parts i.e. drums & shoes were used on later chevys but not as a complete unit. On a wheel cylinder if area goes up so does the force it exerts and on that huck style you need all the help you can get. Hope that helps.
Try The Filling Station, Ecklers, Chevys of the 40s even Speedway Motors
