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.

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.
