CCKW Brake Servo

Has anyone out there found a modern replacement for the CCKW brake servo?, the originals and kits to repair them seem more and more difficult to find.

 

The answer is Yes !

 

I did one for a customer about 18 months ago and he is pleased with its performance. It is a British Lockheed, slightly shorter, small amount of pipe alteration, nothing serious, from memory, the bracket at the front end fitted straight on and a simple support bracket was made for the tail end. It is a much simpler unit than the oversized thing that is originally fitted.

 

The important bit......it is the servo fitted to certain models of Ferret scout cars. As it is probably a commercial item, seals would be available from brake specialists.

You have to be carefull when fitting a non GMC servo as it may well not have the fulid displacemant that is nessary to put on six wheel cylinders.

I do have NOS early type GMC servos in stock plus I have the kits to repair them should you get stuck.

I fitted one to a Halftrack that I was told by the customer had been from a CVRW Fox. I have a feeling it may have been from a Ferret, but either way it stopped much better than stock.

 

I also fitted one from a 1970s Dennis fire engine to my old CCKW and you could lock all six wheels on a dry road. Had to have the brakes set up perfectly though!

My old CCKW used to lock all 6 wheels on a dry road with a completely original set up. Even loaded the brakes were better than modern air braked trucks, they are more than adequate if properly set up and maintained.

Fair point, but in my defence the truck was incomplete when bought, and I had the fire engine one sitting on the shelf for free which at the time was an important factor :-).

It was a long while ago now since I posted this, I did look one year at W & P Show, a brake servo which I think was for a Ferret, it was on a dealers stand, NOS, and thought that could fit a CCKW, but after taking advice, was told it probaly would not suitable, although since then I did wonder if this was correct, has anyone out there fitted a Ferret servo to a CCKW?, or even tried and found for whatever reasons it was a no go?
