    they are suppose to be, drops in system pressure like braking is suppose to trigger a vent, thinking maybe the deuce doesn't have a brake pressure impulse that triggers em, or they are garbage at $30 a piece and the $60 bendix ones would've been better, when i first installed em i tried opening the ball valve for the gladhand and still didn't hear a spit, gonna try some tape over the nipple and see if they are purging and just are quiet

    Default M50 Water Tender

    Finally got around to fixing the brakes on the 63 Studebaker .

    This brake is the reason I own this truck, it failed on previous owner and rolled backwards off the road, down an embankment and crashed into some trees, he didn't want to repair the truck so I bought it .

    The bolts backed off (or were never tightened) that hold the drum to the hub, they fell out and destroyed everything inside of the drum and the drum itself .

    Got the water tank back on it as well and setting up a different pump system for this year, should be operable in a few more days hopefully .

    You fixed it up real fine, nice clean work!

    What's with all the valves lying around, do you maybe do utility work?

    Valley Rock...then you had to find new brake parts and a drum?

    I had in my mind that the studs went through the drum when in the position yours are in. I guess they don't. Mine are "flipped", so they will just need reversed (and not go through the brake drum) to put the hub in the same position as yours.

    I have those same drains... I think they purge so little that you wont really hear them, but its enough to let out a drop of moisture.

    Best bet would be to have soldier B pump the brakes while you poke your head underneath and see if they are purging.

    ordered a Sherpa winch yesterday. I'll post pics when it arrives and I install it. Im not going to do the bumper extension. I will install it under the bumper which suits my use better, as there will be a snow plow up front that is tall, 8 1/2 foot wide path, fixed V blade. BTW their website doesn't give specific specs on the extended battery cables guage, so when it gets here I'll order some on line. it does give the 24vdc amp draw (210) and I'll also buy my own circuit breaker to match it. Im sure they match the cables to the draw, but the options are 6 foot or 10 foot. Im guessing I'll need 8 foot including sliding the tray out for servicing. after I mount it, I can get a accurate measurement.

    A welding shop can you supply some good, flexible cables. Stay away from CCA cables! Often used for car hifi, the are only aluminium wires....but looking like copper cables!
