I'm in the same boat. I have an early '64 model. (0306132) I found this rebuild kit on ISP's website. I've never rebuilt cylinders before...I guess this is what you need, maybe the spring, too?

As far as the drums and shoes I lucked out and got a set of like-new drums on TheSamba from a guy that decided to go with discs after he bought them. I paid $50 for the pair. B) I also got a new pair of shoes on TheSamba from another guy for less than half the price of ISP.

Cool - Thanks! Funny they don't have the spring as part of the rebuild kit.

HI,I have a 1963 type 34 Ghia, and must replace my front brake cylinders as well as the shoes. Can you tell me where I can acquire a set for both front wheels?
Thanks,
Olen Sturgeon

The best bet is to search the Samba classifieds. There are usually some NOS ones for sale there but they're usually not cheap. You could also check with ISP West to see if they have any in stock. As a last resort you could have your old cylinders sleeved.

Sleeving can save badly pitted cylinder if the body is OK.

Same problem with my -61 bus, pre-64 front brake cylinders are N/A (as Bobnotch noted earlier). Not only bad availability, you'll need 4 of them as there's one for each brake shoe.

Fortunately I've quite good ones now and I change brake fluid every other year to keep them in good shape.
