Adam, you should be able to get new cylinders at NAPA, if not try a BIG
Truck Parts House. I had my drums turned for about $15 each. I also needed
to get new shoes, but couldn't find any, so, I had mine relined. Most
large cities have a brake shop that does this kind of work. I even found a
rebuilt Hydrovac sitting on a shelf waiting for me locally! You really
shouldn't have any trouble getting the brake parts.
