I have been reading and just want to confirm this before I order new wheel cylinders. I have a 53 with 4 bolt wheel cylinders on all 4 corner. From what I understand I can put on 2 bolt wheel cylinders with no modification. These are the ones I am looking at buying.

This swap is easy and direct and very common. 4-bolt wheel cylinder rebuild kits cost about $4 per wheel, it is a very simple process if you have core wheel cylinders

Cool. Just looking for a quick fix to get it running and driving for now. Its a big project and I won't be throwing away the 4 bolt stuff or anything original for that matter

I use Brake Material and Parts to rebuild stuff that is not common or unobtainium.

Thanks for the tip on Brake Material and Parts. Some local places here that do hoses will not do DOT brake lines.
