This occured a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just now getting the time to blog about it.

Well, the brake hoses on my deuce and a half were probably original to the truck. The outer covering of the hoses were cracked from age, but they were still fine, except for one. My front drivers brake hose had been apparently rubbing against the rim of the tire for a while, and the hose was worn smooth. So, it had to get changed, especially since the brake system on a deuce is only a single-circuit system. This means that a single brake part failure anywhere in the system means no brakes at all.
