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.

65 Mustang Drum to Disc Brake Conversion - 4 Lug
Conversion of 4 lug drum brakes to 4 lug disc brakes on our 1965 Mustang Coupe. Costs can be as low as $190 if you use existing hubs or as high as $385 if you opt for new hubs from the kit maker. We sourced parts on RockAuto.com and got our special kit from www.scarebird.com ScareBird makes the backing plate which allows you to use off shelf parts and can provide the hub specially made for this conversion. ScareBird provides all the instructions and more importantly the list of off shelf parts you'll need to complete your conversion. They are extremely friendly and were helpful through my entire conversion.

1968 Pontiac Catalina Drum To Disc Brake Conversion Part 01
I am going to convert my classic car's drum brakes to disc brakes. I have a shop manual, and advice from the Internet, and a willingness to try. Wish me luck! This is just a preliminary. Getting the car jacked up and the wheels off.

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...

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.
