    I'm restoring a 1981 Ford LTS 8000. Haven't gotten into the front disc brakes yet but will soon. Any insight appreciated: caliper parts, caliper rebuilding. I do have the shop manuals & ultrafische parts veiwer for my truck. My main request is parts (on a budget) new or used.
    Thanks, Dennis......

    I have a 88 L9000 and the air over hydraulic disk brake parts are still avalable through any Ford heavy truck dealer or aftermarket heavy truck parts supplyer.
