I am going to have to go through the brakes on my fathers 1937 812 Custom Beverly with the object of making it roadworthy again. I seem to remember someone saying that they are the same brakes as a Studebaker of the same year. Is that true? I have a friend in the Studebaker parts business. Barring the parts interchange information does anyone have current part numbers for master and wheel cylinders? I would prefer to use new or rebuilt units as I have not looked inside the ones on the car to see what condition they are in. I do have a leaking wheel cylinder. If I can't get the cylinders I would be interested in rebuild kits.

You can probably hone out or have re-sleeved whatever your father has in the car and the interior parts are available by size at any good auto parts store (ex. NAPA)

And, if not worn to the rivets I would avoid changing the brake linings - seen more problems than solutions and doubt you are going to put many miles on the car
