Re: [Chrysler300] Brake replairs

Rich and all,
I have this puller assembly and have used it many times - it works great

Check this out for an effective wheel puller.  Regardless of which puller you use, be sure to leave the castellated nut on the end of the axle to prevent it from converting you to a soprano when the drum breaks loose from the tapered axle-with a hell of a bang..     .

Hi Jerry,
I have rebuilt the brakes on my H and 62 Sport.
My suggestions are;
1. Turn the drums
2. If you can't find correct shoes, have your old ones re-lined.
3. Get the new shoes "arched" to match the individual drum I.D.'s.
4. Try NAPA, Auto Zone, or?? for new or re-built wheel cylinders and master cylinder.
5. Recommend new return springs if you can find them.
6. "Booster Dewey" can re-build your power brake booster.
7. Purge existing fluid from the system and replace with DOT 5.
Hope this helps,

Gentlemen and Ladies,


It’s come to repair the brakes in my 1962 300 Sport Coupe that’s been sitting for a spell. I’m losing brake fluid, but at this time have not found out where, but suspect a wheel cylinder as there are telltale signs on one of the wheels that I pulled to put new tires on it.


I also want to rebuilt the master cylinder and power brake booster. I’ve looked at Rock auto and they only list 330H shoes. Also the wheel cylinders do not look like the ones I have on now. I’m looking for a phone number for them to speak to a service rep if possible.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It’s also scheduled to go into the body shop to get repainted. With a little help it started right up, but it is not idling smoothly. 413 w/4 barrel and 3 speed manual trans.  Will do complete tune up after it’s painted.


Thanks in advance,
