The Perils of Hunting!

2011 Toyota Tacoma brake line

The owner of this 2011 Toyota Tacoma was out in the back-country elk hunting and had a nasty run in with a snow bank. The right rear brake line was ripped apart. Luckily the owner was able to come up with a temporary solution to complete his hunt and make it home safely.

The owner requested our certified car care technicians replace all of his flex hoses with steel braided hoses. They are stronger, but we do not guarantee they will survive the back-country. The photo above to the right shows the old flex hoses on the left side of the truck.

AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment Works on Classic Cars AND Trucks!

This 1948 Diamond T truck was brought in for brake service. The owner pulled it out for Hot August Nights and hit the brakes and the pedal went straight to the floor.

The problem was the left rear wheel cylinder was leaking. The owner decided to have us go ahead and replace all of them while we were at it. The front cylinders were more traditional cylinders and easy to replace. The rear cylinders, on the other hand, were much more unique. After some pretty extensive searching on the internet, we were able to locate two and get this customer back out on the road.

Here is a photo of the unique rear cylinder.
