Closing the loop on this repair

Cut the existing Reliable swing tongue and mounted a bolt-on outer with an A-60 inner. Brakes are good now.

Yes, very much so.... Had a bad actuator, thus no brakes. Now I have brakes!

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I wanted to ask if you had to do any welding with this option, or were you able to bolt it directly to where you cut it off?

There are Reliable conversion kits available that reuse the existing mount. You don't have to cut anything off or bolt anything on. Simply remove the old swing actuator with the new one, install the new actuator and bleed the brakes. The installation can be a bit of a handful threading the brake line on but it'll be the same with both options.

Thank you for the replies, but I’m in the same boat, pun intended. I have a pickle fork front end and these direct replacements are too short by about 10”.
