Scout brakes issue.

Recommended Posts

My wife has a late 70's Scout 2 diesel. When she first bought it, brakes didn't work well and pedal was somewhat hard to push. Now the pedal just goes to the floor with no braking whatsoever. Figuring it needs a new master cylinder at least. Where are you guys getting parts for these at? Any auto parts store or is there somewhere that specializes in parts for them? Need to get the brakes working again and them address a few other issues it has.

Napa can still get parts if you have a decent counter person. Lot of specialty vendors for scout. Super Scout Specialist in Enon Ohio can help also. I live between Springfield and Dayton and have used them for light line parts. If I can help let me know. I am about 30 minutes from Eaton.

The master is a common part, should be able to find anywhere. The odd part is the special alternator with the vacuum pump on the back that powers the booster. They are pretty much not available. There are several work around that have been used, but hopefully you are just working on the brakes. Pads, calipers, and such are also easy to find.

Thanks for the replys, sounds like the master cylinder shouldn't be a big deal. Next step after that is the charging issue, which sounds like might be a problem. Hope to get it in and start going over it here in the next week or so.

Not a cheap fix but all 90's Chevy 2500 have a power steering powered hydraulic brake booster. No vacuum required.

Those alternators were easily re-buildable. Hopefully the rotor is still good which drives the vacuum pump.

Usually brushes and bearings and if a 10SI, a regulator and back in business.

Or could also be a regulator with the 10DN Delco.

Not a Delco alternator, something Japanese. For parts you would probably hav to go through Australia, which is what you have to do now for the engine parts.
