Replacement Master Cylinder, Shock and Push Rod Assembly for Dico Model 60 Drum Brake Actuator  


The dico model 60 on my boat trailer just bought doesnt work. Bought a new Demco 8605001 from you and went to install tonight and learned that not only was in bolt to the frame but it was welded also. I am afraid if I cut the welds I will weaken the trailer. SO What parts do I need to rebuild the model 60. I know it needs the master cylinder, is it this one? T4395100 It needs the shock. is it this one? T2336200 The latch is OK but do I need that rod that touches the master cylinder. Sadly the 2 parts I mention cost more than the Demco one I bought from you and that is complete! Now that I think of it can I just take the parts off the one I bought from you? It will save me return shipping and time


Expert Reply:

Definitely sorry to hear the actuator you got didn't work out, but at least you are able to get the replacement parts you need (I realize that's little consolation but better than having to chop off a welded actuator). You will need specific replacement parts as opposed to using the parts from the Demco actuator you have as actuators don't have universally fitting parts.

You were right on with the part numbers you need for your Dico Model 60 actuator:

- Replacement Master Cylinder Assembly - Drum # T4395100
- Replacement Shock Absorber # T2336200

As for the the rod that touches the master cylinder, I believe you are referring to the push rod assembly, and if yours is in good shape then you can continue to use it; otherwise you will need a new one, which is the Replacement Push Rod Assembly # T2346300.

I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.
