Hi, new here. I have a 1976 Mikado. Had it since 78 or 79. Where can I find brake calipers? Seems no one can get right side.
Thanks,
Dan

Lately many have been unable to buy calipers from Rock Auto, NAPA and all the other chain stores. Looks like they are not rebuilding them now. You might be able to get a rebuild kit and do it yourself.

If you look at my build on this forum, you will see how to adapt trooper brakes to the truck. You have to cut part of the bracket to get clearance, and on the passenger side every thing bolts up if you use the drivers side caliper and bracket. You do have to remove the caliper an hold it in with a c clamp on the piston to get the bleeder nipple in the correct position to bleed the breaks. Goofy, but I have about a thousand miles on the truck and it works. Just a Paine to bleed the passenger side.
