One thing you run into on these old camelbacks--not enough room to fit a standard chamber. The rotochambers are a lot smaller diameter.

Correct, Even the Maxi design chamber is a close fit,(3/16 inch between the chamber and backing plate). The one plus with this design brake chamber is they can be re-sealed for about $40 as long as the internal metal parts are serviceable.

I installed the new chamber today, adjusted all the brakes, and took it out for it's first test drive.

The guess on the top speed was correct, 47-48 mph at 2000 rpm in 5th/Hi split, Everything seems to be operating as it should, next will be replacing the bed floor, it's pretty well shot.
