Happy New Year 2019!

About 8 months ago I received my IH Metro AM150 van from the state of Washington! A lil elbow grease and after work sweat, the hubbie and I got the straight six up and running. We would like to take the whole break system ourselves this upcoming year however some of the comments regarding brakes are making me second guess. We think one company in particular has all the parts we need according to our model (Rock Auto). We are working with all the original glory of the van and have not made any body off type restorations (could not afford). I really want to be able to drive her, just even in my neighborhood to show off her peculiar ways ha.... If we can nail this brake sytem, I'd be one happy camper. All the other cosmetic dressings would follow slowly. If anyone has any new listing on parts or cool websites to visit, please share. Be safe and Have a Happy New Year.

Looks like a nice project! What are your plans for it?

I'm a little surprised that a 150 has a semi-floating rear axle.

Happy New Year to you, also. Do a good job on those brakes.
