30 Durant 614 hydraulic brake setup.

My last purchase had been converted to hydraulic brakes and I converted it back to original. I have the following parts.

Original front backing plates and shoes that have been converted to hydraulic.

Modern rear end drilled for 6 bolt wheels. I believe it is Rambler. This was probably used to get the brakes and a better gear ratio. It is slightly wider than original Durant.

Driveshaft mounted parking brake.


Front u-joint and transmission flange.

Master cylinder bracket.

The good news......it's free.
The bad news....you have to pick it up in Iowa.

Hi Dave. I sure would like all your backing plates with cylinders. I am willing to pay you a bunch to wrap them up and mail them to me. Also I am getting ready to have Mike Butters make up a bunch of the proper stock 614 crank covers. Would you like me to add one for your 614 Roadster? Thank you much. Lance

Re: 30 Durant 614 hydraulic brake setup.

I only have the front plates. The rear plates are Rambler (I think). I think I'll give the guys a little more time and see if someone wants the whole set up. If no one wants it all I'll get back to you.
