  • Hill holder

    Will a hill holder off of a 56 car fit a 55 pickup or a 51 . I have a hill holder off a 56 and trying to figure out my options.

    The lines, brackets and linkage rods are all wrong, the No-Rol hydraulic unit itself may work.

    You would need a complete set of the model specific hardware to copy, in order to make it work.

      I'd say, if you can fashion a bracket to mount the HH to - plumb the line outta the MC to the HH and then onto the brake system - rig a rod (made from all-thread) from the clucth arm hole (there should be a hole already) to the HH lever, it'll work. The critical thing is that the HH unit is level with the frame and the rod is adjusted to work the HH lever as needed.
      Some HH units attach right to the end of the master cylinder and other's mount remotely. One that mounts to the rear of the MC saves making a bracket and a connecting line. Of course, it has to sit to where there's reasonable reach to the clutch pedal arm so the rod can work freely.

        Some hill holders, including the hawks, mounted using the same two mounting bolts used for the master cylinder. The hill holder on these was parallel to the master cylinder on the other side of the frame rail.

          Thank you very much! I have a 51 commander that has a hill holder but it unmoveable . I am afraid to try and take it apart because it is so rusted. The brakes work fine it is just that the hill holder does not and it will not move at all
