Howdy - '72 270 on early 71 M375 chassis

Unread postby rjsdotorg on Sun Dec 24, 2017 3:11 pm

Picked it up recently, and currently working at "no brake pedal" problem.

Then fuel pump and electric frame pump for good measure.
Then maybe HEI conversion and a 160A alternator.

Had a 71 Chinook with the 318 years ago.

Welcome to the Forum. No brake pedal can be a few things from a leak to bad boosters to misadjusted drum brakes.

Thanks, first order I think is a power bleed and manual adjustment if needed.
I had added a pint of fluid and the "feel" improved, but still went to the floor, so I'll ask for a full bleed and we'll see.
I'd read that the booster can leak after sitting, and it sat for a year apparently.

Welcome!
Wheel cylinder seals are another culprit. See if there is any brake fluid leaking down the inside of a tire.
