I have a 1964 Loadstar with Hydovac brakes. Does anyone have the procedure to bleed the brakes. I've tried everything but can't get it to build any pressure on the pedal. Any help would be apprecitated.

Being the owner of a 1968 1800 and a 1969 1600 IH Loadstars I will tell you that these brakes are nearly impossible to bleed even when you use a power bleeder.

First off adjust all the brakes up on the truck . Then it is best if ya POWER BLEED . Juice brakes on trucks are a pain and most of the brake problems are from brakes out of adjustment as they are all manual adjust and people think that when ya start having to pump the brakes to get pedal it is something in the hydra vac or master cyl. When 99% of the time it is just in need of a brake adjustment . Now ya can try vac. bleeding and this sometimes works or gravity bleeding . The biuggest problem with most truck brakes is that there are a lot of ups and downs in the line and just tryen to move enough fluid with the pedal will not get the air up and over . These are the best i have to offer ya.

Wish I knew guys, I still use a 59 model B 160 farm truck(grand dad of a 1600). Had a wheel cylinder leak a few years ago. I replaced the parts and tried regular two man pedal pumping to bleed it, no luck. vacuum bled it several times with no better luck, still had a two pumper. I just gave up and carefully lived with it as a two pumper for about 6 months when it slowly dissolved the air in the brake fluid and bled itself. This year I replaced all wheel, master and booster cylinders and had the same bleeding problems. Even tried bleeding it with the truck nose up/nose down in a steep ditch to help move the air out. Still had a two pumper. Now after 6 months, it has self bled itself again,and hopefully with all new parts,it will last a long long time.
