Couple more shots, tires are great thank God, little surface rust underneath. I'll take a brush to it, then I think sone rubberized undercoating.

So after realizing the hub and drum is one assembly, I'm taking them apart. Here's a few pics. In need of diff service, the fluid looks like coffee.

While most of this information is from the Service manual it may help you through this.

Dave's Place - M300 (Late) 1972-73

There are links to Master Cylinder, booster, and wheel assembly information at the top left.

Just bought basically all new brakes from Alretta truck in Boston, MA (thank God im on Cape Cod). His name is Geoffrey Rosenberg, he is probably one of the most knowledgeable guys I ever spoke with. He ran through everything and anything with my brakes, while he was out at lunch!!!! (i told him id call back, but he insisted on helping me) . He could describe every piece and part and their location. explained how to do things etc. etc. ... Just putting it out there that if you need vintage brake parts, or even info. Hes the man!

Sweet rig, Johnnyd. I had a 72, tad bigger, but same only different. Ran it about 30k miles before had to park it at 70k miles. Only problem ever had was intermittent coil. Would drive fine, then just quit dead. 318 just like yours. Got about 11 mpg from what I can remember. Also, had split rims which some say are pita. Can't wait til you post the done-pics!
allegroman

ps you said tires 'looked' great... but ck the date codes, do g-search on mh tire date codes... lots very important info to be read about it.... maybe life-saving.

Dodge, Fargo and DeSota are all brand names of vehicles made by Chrylser. It is unlikely that it was the name of the MH that you have.

Good luck on your rebuild, I wish I had the health and opportunity to tackle a project like that.
