You will need to replace the whole brake system, MC and wheel cylinders,maybe your brake lines as they rust through. Brake fluid is hydroscopic and absorbs water. That is why you should have your brake system flushed every 3 years. A shop can put a special strip into the fluid and tell you if it is good.

Yeah, I know. I've done the brakes on the waggy. Same reason you only use an unopened thing of brake fluid.

We'll see if i get around to checking it.

Marn, what's the bolt pattern on the trailer wheels?

I've got a set of 4 aluminum wheels (with tires) that I think came off a 1st generation Escort or Toyota (4x133mm I think). They've got (I think) 155R13's on them. If you want more info I'll take a pic or two tomorrow.

I could probably figure a way to get them to you (maybe).

Well, let me take a look at what they are. Maybe if they fit you can use them as beater spares. They're actually pretty funky looking, which translates to "pretty cool" when coupled to vehicles as old as both of yours.

I'm going to need to notch the bumper though to keep it from putting pressure on the tire and damaging it.

Are you going to paint the wheels black to match the Jeep?
