A truck that old should have the "bolt type" air chambers. You cannot just go to the local parts house and get spring brakes for bolt chambers.

If it is going to be a hobby truck, and has a Tru-stop disk e-brake, I would leave it as is. The Tru-Stop is a damn good brake if restored. All in all, it may be easyer to restore then to update depending on what the truck has now.

If you have deep pockets,spring brake chambers for the multibolt chambers used to be available that would have the clamp style housing on the spring brake section . But the simple fix is to change out the whole chamber assembly on the S cam bracket .

Many of the bolt type mount different the the clamp type, You can not interchange without modification to the mount.

What model is that truck? There should be a tag on the RH side of the dash. It will have the serial number on it as we'll.

I have a website for old KW trucks as well. Check it out. Www.K-WVintageTrucks.com

Thanks

looking at the hood panels, the fenders seem to be original, maybe a Canadian heavy duty truck, a predecessor to the LW 924? Anyway, nice truck seems to be in pretty decent shape, good luck fixing her up!!!.......Doug
