Are you talking leaks from two different areas? Rear drum and somewhere up front? That would sound like a rebuild of a brake system and an opportunity for upgrades ��

Yeah the trailer single axle stopped me. But not in the amount of space I had. If I'd had just a few more feet I wouldn't have hit anybody.

I honestly don't know. It was pretty much dark by the time I got It home. And I left this morning to go back to work off shore . Currently 400 miles from home waiting to catch a boat in the morning. It'll have to wait 6 weeks for me to look at it.

Stay safe out there! That'll give you time to price out all the new parts

Yikes! I hope the brakes work on the tugboat next trip!

Glad to hear no one was hurt.


Looks like you blew out a wheel cylinder. Not too costly, but the shoes will have to be replaced too.


Go over 100% of your brake system. Pads, shoes, calipers, etc. Any questionable steel lines or hoses get replaced! Fresh fluid all the way around.


Back in 2008, my 1984 Chevy K20 had a seeping line to the rear. $500 in parts and a full weekend's work, the brakes never gave me grief again. Sold it this spring with a clear conscience.

Ditto on the wheel cylinder, mike837go.

I had a 63 Impala in college (early 90s, I'm not that old!). That car had drums on all 4 corners and was not fun to stop. I blew a wheel cylinder coming up to a stop light and luckily had an empty grass lot to bail into before getting the car to stop with the emergency brake.

X3 on the wheel cylinder I have actually had them go out on two different vehicles. Also had a brake line blow out on a older F150 while towing a car trailer witha mini excavator. And just a few months ago while my 15 year old daughter was driving my DW truck just as she pulled "luckily" INTO our driveway a brakeline blew out. She almost drove right through my garage before panicking and jamming it into park LOL. Im just so happy that it happened in the driveway and not out on the open rd.
