Hi there folks,

I was changing a failed Rear Brake Cylinder and discovered that the Raybestos Replacement Bleeder Screw is too long !
It faces the rear suspension so the longer screw means no room for the bleeder hose.

There is very little documented about the screw itself and even the Cylinder Kit is no longer spared by Chrysler !

Has anyone figured out a replacement part number ?

I think it's an M10 x 1.0 however it doesn't fit cleaning in my M10 x 1.0 Die.
The Raybestos Bleeder is 33 MM long.

We had a selection of bleeder screws at the parts department for times like this.
See if your local auto/hardware store has a selection?
The Wagner cylinders look closer to OEM than the Raybestos.

Thanks so much !
I am taking the new Cyl down to Napa tomorrow to see if they have a fit.
I'll post the dimensions once I get them

Hi there folks,
I did manage to obtain a close approximation from the AutoZone people.

Here is a picture of the original
You can see that the threaded part is really short as it the pin on the end.
I measured the threads which were 1.0 Metric and the Screw I believe is an M10

Update today.
I was putting the car back together for testing and noticed that there was a problem with the parking brake.
The driver side cable is frozen.

I am now wondering if this is where it all started.
When I removed the console I could see that the passenger cable was retracted back while the driver cable was sticking out, leaving the bar that pulls the two at an angle.

This means that the parking brake was still on, heating up the drum?
Would that in turn destroy the seals on the Cylinder ?

Hunting for a new cable now.
Anyone have recommendations on parking cable replacement ?

Wow, I found it hard to actually find parking brake cables for this year of car !
Seems that the spares inventory is starting to dry up.

Thank goodness I bought two cables, I had to install the second because the spring tension was now different between them.
They are now installed and ready to adjust. Looking forward to putting the old gal back together.
