This would be an opportunity for someone with a ton of air-pak experience to jump in and give us some feedback. It's only a big deal if what we add melts rubber and gums up the seals.....like the time I put motor oil into a chevy brake reservoir. lol.What oil are you going to use in the airpak? Some people suggest hydraulic jack oil and some say air tool oil.
I ended up using the hydraulic jack oil,l but would like to see what your thoughts were.
I am wondering what you mean by "lock up". We have someone in our club with an upgraded Deuce where the brakes were converted to a dual master cylinder. After a couple of stops, his brakes lock up and he can't get them to release unless he bleeds off a brake line. If by lock up you mean the brakes are very sensitive and grabby, we find that is common to many M211/M135 series including our M220.As I have posted on here numerous times, we have had a continuing problem with the brakes on my Dad's M135 contually locking up.
I have re-done eveything, and paid to have the airpack rebuilt by a supposed expert, twice.
Still am about ready to give up. Almost.
Would you consider rebuilding ours. We would of course pay whatever the fair cost?
The truck, nice as it is is worthless if we cant drive it.
