|Brakes for 1972 Superior Mortorhome||Patrick||7-28-14|
|Hello, I am new to the forum. I have a 1972 Dodge Superior which was classified as a class C motor home. V8 318 engine. It's 20 feet and the 2000 series.|
This motorhome needs brakes. Does anyone know where I can get parts for this motorhome??

|Its an old Dodge Van, ignore that it is also a motor home.|
Your local parts store should be able to provide parts, as it is so old expect everything to be special order.

|I just happen to have a 1972 motorhome (Superior). When I did work on the brakes, I just took the old part to the Napa store and they were able to sell, or order a new part for me. Usually there is a part number on the part you're working on. There used to be an organization called Superior People I believe which was a small community of Superior owners. I have not heard from them for years and they may have disbanded. A internet search may be of help. |
When ever you buy a new part, do not give them the old part (Core) until the new part is installed and fully functional. Period.... Little things like the correct length brake rod or a small part that is not available may be lost with the core. I was even able to have rubber brake lines easily manufactured at a truck brake parts store. The brake booster also was re manufactured locally. Again make sure nothing is thrown away for a month or two till the item is fully functional to your satisfaction. These units are old, but easily worked on from a mechanical point of view. Good luck
