Who needs brakes ?
So the only thing wrong with the dumptruck i bought was it needed a battery and the brakes didn't hold fluid. I looked at the master cylinder and it was wet so i figured the rubber was worn, so i ordered a rebuild kit. Then i noticed the rear cylinders were leaking too, i figured no problem , i'll rebuild them too. Well after diagnosing the cylinders , i saw the problem. When i bought the truck the guy said they had dual wheels on the back at one time, i guess so they could carry more weight. He tells me that they fell off and they didn't put them back on. What he forgot to tell me was the drums rode on the wheel cylinders and wore a groove in them. So those i have to replace, i still got a great deal. Oh yeh and the last pic is of the area i'm leveling for the now swimming pool the wife has wanted. You know what they say " If the wife isn't happy, nobody's happy" love ya baby !
