Drum to Disc Brake Conversion - 1968 Cougar / Mustang
A majority of these classic 60's cars came with manual drum brakes from the factory, which was fine when most of the other cars on the road also had manual drums. But in today's world, stopping distances are much shorter, and antiquated drum brakes are a real safety hazard when driving alongside modern cars. That's why converting to power disc brakes is a no-brainer to us. In this video, Andrew uses the factory power disc brake components from a 1970 Cougar to convert his 1968. The important thing to remember when doing this is to take the whole system in its entirety, and not to mix-and-match parts from different years. The 1970 brake pedal needs to be used with the 1970 Booster, and so on. The conversion shown in this video is just one of the possible routes you can take. We like using factory Ford parts when possible, rather than aftermarket kits, but that's our opinion.
