    I see that raybestos part number shared time and time again for 67-72 setups. It'll work, but there is a marked difference in pedal feel between a 1" and 1-1/8" wheel cylinder.

    Did swapping to 1 1/8 wheel cylinder fix your problem with pedal feel on yours? I have a 1" bore wc a 3/4" bore stock Wagner MC with residual valve in it and 3/16 hard line with a 6" rubber line and have a rock hard pedal and the brakes are on par with any rear only single disc I've ever ran. They sucked at first but i had to re-radius and bed the shoes to the drum. But now locking them up is not a problem at all.

    So I'd like to jump in here with a HiJack, since there are a lot of knowledgeable people on this subject. Currently have a Panhead in a late late wishbone frame (early 50s?) with mechanical brakes and wouldn't mind changing over to a juice brake. Is this as "easy" as swapping out the backing plate, adding a master, and running plumbing OR am I just wishing a lot?

    Thanks all,
    -DB

    Doom Buggy, pretty much, you'll need to swap the drum as well and axle spacers, best bet would probably be an axle and spacer kit for a 58 and right side foot controls from a 58 up. You will have to spread the rear legs a little to fit everything in but its maybe a 1/2" if i remember correctly

    Found a few places to help with parts location and identification of Wagner brake parts.

    PDF files of Wagner parts catalogs.

    And Vintage brake repair.
