Re: POWDER COATING in Connecticut

Re: Vibration - rumble

Could be wrong but do I see bare metal where the drum safety bracket wraps around the drum? Possibly rubbing? Or even broken axle?...

Re: leaking brake fittings 47 1 ton pickup

If you can't get new (soft) copper washers then heat the old ones up to cherry red and immediately quench in cold water.
