I did a search under this topic and saw a recent post (July 06) that cautioned removal and disassembly of the hill holder for rebuild. I want to restore the hill holder in my 47 M5. I found it disconnected with the brake lines going around the unit. I imagine it has been out of service and likely rusted or cruddy inside. My intent was to remove, disassemble, clean, reassemble, install and adjust. Is this ill advised, should I follow the alcohol shake and dump method?

I think that would be the prudent approach. Do the clean and flush and see what - if anything comes out.
With the lever in the release position, you should be able to hear and feel the ball moving in it's cage. If that's not the case, then it might be rusted BEYOND redemption either way.[}:)]

I happen to know where a hill holder for probably the same truck is.Mr biggs I can't remember what year the truck at the wrecking yard was. I have the master cylinder with hill holder attached.

It was a '52 Anne. Wonder if it's still sitting there?

Not knowing any better, I took my NoRol apart, cleaned it in isopropyl alcohol, and re-assembled it. I did have to use a big pipe wrench on the big end cap to get it loose, so it did make marks in the knurled edge. I managed to get it to seal up and work OK. Studebaker International has rebuild kits under part #526633 without the ballcage assy and 526633X1 with the complete ball cage. This should be the same as the M5 part number 525335 for the repair kit, but you can check with them if it has the parts you want.
Here are the M5 installation instructions:
