Clark C500 Y55:
No brakes, leaking behind left side front wheel

I have a pneumatic tire Clark forklift with no brakes. Both the brake and inching pedal go to the floor. I opened the bleeders on the front of the forklift, power bled the system and got nothing to come out. The small tank in the front/middle has a bleeder, that opened and bled nice, then there was a heavy leak behind the left tire. I assume there is some sort of wheel cylinder behind the tire, drum, etc. What on earth do they look like? Part numbers? Anything? I don't want to tear into it without having the part to swap in. I figure I would do both sides while I'm in there. I have an operators manual, which is about 200 pages, but does NOT show a wheel cylinder in the brake system diagrams.

Just call the local Clark dealer with the model and serial #. Tell them that you want to do a complete brake job. They will price up all of the parts that you will need. make sure they include the oil seals. The prices should be relatively cheap.

I have lots of heavy machinery experience, I just can't find a part number to order. The job doesn't scare me, but I need to know what to order so that I can get this all done in one shot.
