02Speedway Motors is proud to announce another exclusive product in its extensive line of street rod parts: New ’39-’48 Ford Wheel Cylinders with Stainless Steel Sleeves. These ’39-’48 Ford Wheel Cylinders are perfect for traditional-style hot rods, as well as restored original classics. Modern brake fluids have aggressive chemistry that can attack raw cast iron. To avoid this, Speedway Motors starts with all-new castings and installs corrosion-resistant stainless steel sleeves. Each wheel cylinder has two bore sizes, just as the originals did, and features new pistons, cups, seals and bleeders. Available for the left- and right-hand side of both front and rear brakes, the wheel cylinders ensure that your vintage brakes perform even better than ol’ Henry intended. As always, the Speedway Motors price is affordable.
