1968 Pontiac Catalina Drum To Disc Brake Conversion Part 02

Part 2 of N. I don't have the right kind of jack, and I can't afford one right now, so until payday comes around again I'm working on other parts of this project. Today I took off the drums, took apart one of the donor discs so I could clean it up, and had a close encounter with what I believe to be a black widow spider.

Mustang SSBC Front Disc Brake Conversion Kit Installation 1965-1966
http://www.cjponyparts.com/ssbc-standard-front-disc-brake-conversion-kit-du al-bowl-v8-power-automatic-transmission-1965-1966/p/A12020-V/ We've recently updated the suspension on our Forgotten Fastback project car, and now we're going to upgrade to a set of SSBC disc brakes. This Conversion Kit with Dual Bowl Master Cylinder is for 1965-1966 V8 Mustangs with power brakes and an automatic transmission. It includes a pair of rotors, a pair of calipers, front brake pads, dual bowl master cylinder and 7" single diaphragm Booster, splash shield, brake hoses, rotor retaining hardware, and all brackets. The first two parts Bill installs on the Forgotten Fastback are the splash shield and the caliper bracket. Then, you'll grease the bearings and rotor and install the rotor on your spindle. Install the cotter pin and the dust shield, then you're ready to load the caliper. The last step before mounting the caliper on the car is to install the brake line. Next, place the caliper over the rotor and line up the bracket. After this, prepare the Booster for installation by installing the brackets that mount to the firewall. The Booster is going to mount where your factory master cylinder was. Bill then demonstrates how to bench bleed the master cylinder and install it on your car.

ScareBird provides all the instructions and more importantly the list of off shelf parts you'll need to complete your conversion.

GBody 10/12 Bolt Chevy Rear End Big Disc brake upgrade, DO IT YOURSELF (PART 1)
READ DESCRIPTION- This rear end came out of and is going in a GBody Doing this video, first of all, because I can. Second to provide a more descriptive how to on doing a rear disc upgrade for your Chevy 10/12 Bolt rear end. With slight modification to your housing ends, you can put 98-2002 Camaro rear disc brakes on the car, changing the drums. You can also save a ton of money, if you pull decent used parts from a donor car (at the junk yard) and if you catch them on a half off day, you will save even more money. I usually have a setup laying around, but instead of buying them from someone, I encourage you to pull them yourself. You can pull them off the donor vehicle, by taking the rear wheels off (if they are on), removing the rear caliper and pabs (retaining the bolts/hardware). the you will need to pull the axles (which is done the same way I show you in the video). then pull the ebrake/backing plate assembly and all bolts... if you want, pull the ebrake cable too, this may help you modify your vehicle so that the ebrake works properly. I do not know everything, but if you ask any questions, I will share what I do know. What you will need: - donor rear brakes (either new or) from a 09-02 Camaro - longer studs, 10 (at least 2.5" long) and for your vehicles proper knurl diameter - gear oil (and additive, if you have a posi unit) - 3/8 inch drill bit and smaller bit for pilot holes (must be able to drill through steel) - sawzaw, hand saw, grinder, torch, or whatever you can use to cut thick metal - should replace the seals and bearings while you are at it - I normally get new rotors and pads (brake motive has them for crazy cheap) - disc/disc prop valve, or modify your stock, or add adj prop valve to rear line - shock relocation brackets, which can be made from angle iron, misc bolts/nuts Last but not least, you need COMMON SENSE! I may have missed a thing or to in the list but it will be explained in the video. Certain aftermarket 15" wheels may work with this upgrade, but you will more than likely need 16" or larger wheels. Do your research...





Drum Brakes vs Disc Brakes - Summit Racing Quick Flicks
On this comparison video of drum brake vs disc brake systems, Dave will discuss the differences between the two systems. While drum brakes are more cost effective, disc brakes offer many performance advantages, including shorter stopping distances, reduced brake fade, and more attractive appearance.

How To Rebuild a Front Brake Caliper -EricTheCarGuy
In the past few videos I've been getting my Fairmont ready to take to the drag strip. Since I discovered some brake issues I thought it best to address those. In this video I rebuild the right front caliper. Turns out after I replaced the brake hoses that it was sticking and not releasing. Not wanting to spend the money on a new caliper, I decided to go for a rebuild. Now may of you may question the logic of doing this, especially when you see the caliper piston, but keep in mind my intention is to replace the entire brake system when I upgrade the engine and suspension on this car so it doesn't make sense to make a huge investment in this car as it is now. So for the naysayers, it's temporary, chill out. Either way I hope you enjoy this video and that it helps you if you find yourself needing to rebuild a front brake caliper. It is a cheap alternative IF your piston isn't all corroded. BTW it's not likely your piston isn't going to be all corroded. Good luck.

How To Quickly Flush & Bleed Brakes By Yourself
This video covers how to flush and/or bleed your brakes by yourself in a matter of minutes with a hand vacuum pump. There is no need for a buddy to pump the brakes for you with this method. While I'm working on a 2003 Ford Escort ZX2, this technique works for all hydraulic systems with a bleeder valve. This video is an in-depth guide on how to do this job without the need for power or air tools. The vacuum pump kit I used is: Mityvac MV8000 "Automotive Test and Bleeding Kit" This kit is available at most auto parts stores, and is fairly inexpensive considering how useful and versatile this tool is. The hand pump and accessories are available in different kits as well as individually from various sources.
