Speed shop about 35 miles away from me made my brothers front lines for a 72-1210 4x4. T'lette
I am assuming this was possibly meant for another thread? I don't think I have messed with any U-bolts but you had me second guessing for a minute haha.
Yes, wrong thread. Fixed now.
I talked with Scout connection and he could reproduce these for $45 each plus shipping. So about $100. I went over to a local shop called PBS Brake and Supply and the guys there reproduced my originals for $79:
Thinking about total replacement of my MC and booster. Assuming IH calls this booster a "Mastervac", per my manual? Looks like per the web Cardone 50-3114 was a viable replacement however is VERY hard to get a hold of now. Reason being is my MC is very pitted and IMO would need a sleeve, in addition to a rebuild kit from Napa at $50 (RockAuto doesn't have one for a boosted unit). There was a tiny amount of brake fluid at the seal of the booster. Has anyone obtained a combo set recently? Should I just clean up my booster and reuse? I had literally no brakes during my lot drive of this truck but the culprit looked to be mostly leaky WC's.
THis number is off the MC:
If the bore is damaged you need a new mc. Check the parts manual . I think it's the same with and without power brakes,and the same as the 1210. That master cylinder is readily available. If the booster works you can probably reuse or rebuild it.
Edit: I just checked. 391176c92 is listed as the master cylinder for all 1310 and 1210 pickups, both with and without power brakes. You can get one from any parts place as they cross to one that is also used on a Jeep. Get a new one. I've had a lot of junk rebuilt ones.
The only check I know for the booster is to make sure it holds a vacuum. I’ve never rebuilt one so don’t know the process.

Thank you for confirming the part number, thats what I got out of my book. AFAIK and from looking on YouTube boosters are not re-buildable, or at least not meant to be. Thinking for now I will dust off the booster, paint it and get a new MC. A "new" MC is about $100 from what I have seen. Just for reference the part number for the MC and booster combo per the book is 357 545 C92.
I need to get one of those hand vacuum pump things for the brakes and to test the booster. Added to my list.
Not a "new," master cylinder. A NEW master cylinder.
I think I'm going to get the Raybestos not-reman unit. I have had good luck with their junk so far.
Power Brake Booster Exchange,
Located on the internet.
If something has been built, then it can be rebuilt.
Interesting. Does anyone know what the IH4 or IH6 rode code acronym is or where I can find mine? I think these codes are associated with disc brakes and I'm obviously drum
After reading through all of this, I’m not looking forward to doing the same work to my truck.

It's not too awful, I just want to make sure I am interpreting the manual correctly and obtaining the correct parts the first time. Time and money are not on my side. This is a learning curve coming from "popular" or "abundant" types of vehicles. I wanted to get away from mainstream.
The work itself isn't too intimidating, and I actually look forward to it. It's the procurement process you've outlined that seems like a real PITA.
Actually, in bringing up "mainstream", you've reminded me of one of the reasons I started building up a 1310 for a camper: after rehabbing a '67 Jeep M715, parts for IH's in comparison grow on trees. My IH is way more mainstream than that Jeep, and just enough less than a Big-Three truck of the same vintage.
Anyway, thanks for posting up all that footwork you've already done.
Just noticed (FWIW) that Super Scout Specialists has 1300-1310 front brake hoses for $59 each. I don't remember if this was already mentioned-- apologies if so.
SSS was going to be my final option if I couldn't get replacements for cheaper. Luckily I did but may be a viable option for others.
Still trying to source my MC, for now I am going to clean up my booster and reuse. If it turned out issues arise its and easy swap.
Napa has a non-reman MC as well as RockAuto. Hope to order in the next week or two.
