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 Remove a STUCK Drum Brake
How to remove a stubborn brake drum, Stuck Brake Drums Removal, Removing Brake Drums, The "Easy" Way, STUCK DRUM BRAKE? how to get it off!, How to Remove Stubborn Drums Watch how to remove a brake drum that is stuck on. I go through the steps so anyone can remove their drum brake. First try to get it off by wiggling back and forth. Then spray penetrating oil to remove rust between the drum and the seat. Then hit it with a hammer hard. This should free the drum if it is just rusted on. If the drum doesn't come off, then your brakes are probably stuck open preventing the drum from coming off. If this is the case, cut or drill out the holding pins from the back (that hold the shoes in place) and remove the screws to the brake cylinder and then pull the drum off. **If the video was helpful, please give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing.
