    If I remember correctly we had a member that was selling them on here already made up. Peashooter I think? Been awhile so I might be mistaken.

    Also yes on the master cylinder. They are cheap. Air pack is the expensive one and I already bit the bullet on that.

    Default Deuce brakes locking up.

    I went through a similar problem on my truck, though mine was not related to freezing temperatures. It turned out to be particulate debris in the master cylinder, randomly plugging the two small holes.

    At times, the brakes worked very well, good pedal and good stopping power, then suddenly it would have a hard pedal and the brakes would be locked.

    I sent it over to Clinto for the fix. He flushed the system and put a new MC on it and all was good again.

When the brakes locked open on me, I couldn't stop a couple of years ago and ran right out onto the highway. God was with me that day. No cross traffic. I haven't driven the Deuce below freezing since then for that very reason. Not going to take a chance on a rusted brake line. I'll just run all new stainless.
    Stainless steel is great, but you can buy "cuprinal" lines for half the price and they are guaranteed to never rust also. I went with the cuprinal lines myself years ago.
