Mule brake fluid leak

Recommended Posts

It's been leaking VERY slowly over the past couple years, just  had to add a minute amount of brake fluid every few months. Now i have to i add about 3/4 of a cup every 5 days.

i took the rear tire off, where it is leaking from, cleaned up the outside of the drum and it looks like the fluid is leaking from where the   "outer" drum meats the inner drum, #41038. guessing its the brake cylinder inside..... any other thoughts. I made sure the brake line is tight too.

That's what i was thinking too. A new one is 90 dang bucks though! no rebuild kits available.

after having it 18 years, this is the only problem, than besides  putting new rings on the pistons and gaskets.

although i would buy the new one as rebuild does not always work well, have you tried taking the slave cylinder to car quest and see if they have a kit that will fit. i have done this with the alternator and other parts that they did have them for other vehicles [ same part] at alot cheaper prices. i have also found parts on ebay and amazon at much cheaper prices.

Took the wheel apart today. The seals on the end of the cylinder where cracking and leaking. went to O'rielly auto, Autozone and Advance auto, no  cylinder or repair kits.

 Called the  Pro powersports, $85.00 and it i can i pick it up friday.  I found some on Ebay, but they were rebuilt units.

      I need help locating a rear cv style driveline for my early 2008 t4 trooper. I have broken 2 ujoints now and almost put a hole in the oil pan! I found one place but they wont return my calls. The mud season started and i got a big paper weight. Any help is greatly appreciated by me and my family.

      Does anybody know where to get one of these bulbs? 
      It is the one that lights up when the park brake is applied. Same as the one that lights up when the engine is over temperature.
      I have checked several places locally without success.
      Thanks, Mike

      Hi All,
      Have a stock 2017 Stampede 4 door XTR.  Looking for a spare tire, such as a front stock setup.  Quoted from the dealer at $366.00.  For a thousand bucks I can get a whole after market setup of 4 and use my original front for a spare.   My stockies are 27x9r14 and 27x11r14's.  I was thinking of going to 29's.  Does anyone know if they will fit with no rub?  All the dealers don't know.  If anyone has an extra front wheel/tire they want to get rid of ?
      TIA
