    Wheel cylinder link

    Anyone know where to acquire front wheel cylinder links for a 69 90? Mine are pitted quite a bit.

    When you say "link" ....do you mean the short cylindrical rod(s) that come out of the wheel cylinder and push against the shoes?

    Yep, thatís the thingy I need. Mine sat with water I guess. I think the pitting will tear the rubber on the cylinder.

    Thanks for the replies. Iíll try and match the #ís off another vehicle before refinishing the old ones. Thanks again for the advice.
