(heavy equipment)... they thought they had some that would fit but didnt... they offered to put in a snap in high pressure stem but everything ive heard of for these trucks is they need the bolt on ones...
Oh man!

And to add to the new list. Found out during closer inspection of the truck And its brakes i found that both front hub unit bearings are leaking grease again. So now those have to be replaced. If i was still running around town with it i wouldnt care. But just over thousand mile round trip while pulling trailer im going to play on the side of caution and just replace them. But least i got the rear brakes finally adjusted to hold the truck on a hill.

Also picked up some gear lube for both the front and rear diffs. Rear just needs topped off from having the half shafts out. Front i plan to change it out since i dont know when it was last done. And looks little milky. But the front will wait for another day.

changed out the hub assemblies on the truck. The spiney freey anti metal rubbie juice came out. pass side not to bad. But driver side was totally covered. Along with the inside of the rotor hat. 

pass side


driver side one


got them changed out Then went to try and refill what came out when i had the halfshalfs out to adjust the drum brakes. Apparently between the times ive had them out i lost 1-1/2 bottles of fluid. Had only bought one the day before.  So had to get another to finish topping it off.  So now the rears full again.

 got the lines swapped out and the brakes bled on the truck tonight. The first pic is just comparison from the old line to the new one. The second pic is of the hole where the brake fluid was escaping.




had the line changed out in about 30 mins. Finished the bleeding after the sun had completely set. Will work on replacing the rest of the hard lines shortly. Safe enough for right now. But want to work on replacing the rest for peace of mind.

Glad you found that while it was sitting still!

I've had 3 different brake line failures and a caliper failure while moving and it's not fun.
