Call or contact Kevin Lockwood. He goes by col.halftrack here. He carries all the brake parts you need. His prices are better than Napa also.

I was just at Napa to order the UP45 wheel cylinder repair kit and it is for a 1 5/8 cylinder NOT a 1 3/8. The photo online has it as 1 3/8 and perhaps that's where the confusion is.

Has anyone recently purchased Front wheel cylinder repair kits?

Thanks,

Paul

what's on your mind? / Re: Who is Bob Gillard?

Yes, Bob Gillard is from Oregon. He's the one that created the CAD files. He used to sell halftrack and scout car repo armor and other misilanious parts. I bought him out of what he had left then he moved to California I think. I got his CAD files and a bunch of other stuff which is gone now. As for the CAD files there are many and all mixed together between scoutcar, M2 and M3 halftrack. I personally do not know CAD. I did sit down with someone and helped me go through the files briefly. The big thing I ran into is there are many duplicate files of everything, at least 3 or 4 copies of each. Some files are a mystery while others  that were promised are not there. Is it all what Bob Gillard told me is included, no. I was a bit disappointed. I have at my own cost had CAD files made of the track armor for the M2. Some pieces are the same for the M3. I would like to do more but it all cost money. My ultimate goal is to have a folder for each armor panel. Within each folder is a photo of the panel, CAD file, PDF line drawings and any other special instructions. All this takes time, money and someone that knows CAD.

Most of the drawings out there were done by him and the armor on my M2 (bought 3rd hand) was made by/for him.
