Another UFP conversion

I bought 2RLake's X14 and the trailer had been setting for a long time. I tried to flush the brake fluid but the actuator was filled with rusty sludge. So, UFP conversion it was.

Ordered from Waymires for about $450 shipped. Here is the new inner and outer member.



Here is the old and new side by side. New one is a few inches longer.



And here it is painted up and ready to go.



Bled the brakes and it is good to go. I did need to file the hole a little too get the pin to go in, but otherwise just plug and play.

Would you be willing to part with the reservoir cap from the old Reliable unit? Mine is kind of chewed up on the hex and the diaphragm is caved in.

How hard is it to connect all of the hydraulic lines to the new unit? Just a simple flare nut?

do you have to change the brake calipers or anything? I towed mine today and it jammed forward and has always done this. How do i tell if its working?
