Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: Actually, I was always tought that you should replace wheel cylinders like tires, the two on the same axle at the same time. Chances are the new one is going to 'overpower' the one you had to grease up and it will eventually go. It would just be easier to fix it one time, brakes are aggrevating enough as it is....just my opinion.

Greese in the brake fluid!!!! NO NO NO!!!!! It is important nothing is mixed with brake fluid. I will not even mix different DOT types. What you did tels me the rubber seals in the wheel cyls are dryrotted or just gone. The greese will act as a seal for a short time only. Re-build the cyls or get new ones. Yes I agree one should do boath on the same axle at the same time unless they were done a very short time ago. The way you described the greese'y thing'y sounded British. Shipping a Triumph Herald from Southampton to Baltimore cost about $750.00 last year. Not in cantainer but drive on/off. I know as I am looking for anouther Herald in England and will be in England in July. I hope to find one to bring home by then. A CJ2A is about 2 feet shorter, weighs about the same. I would think shipping should be close. I also think it cost more to ship from here to there. The Jeep is about the same with and with the windshield down the same hight. Size and wheight matter for cost. Bill
