1962 - 1974 B & E MOPAR DISC BRAKE
THIS IS A PRETTY SIMPLE CONVERSION, BUT IT WILL MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE TO YOUR MOPARS STOPPING POWER. PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY, AND YOU WILL HAVE A TROUBLE FREE EXPERIENCE. You will have a little expense, purchasing the parts, PLEASE, spend the money, to protect you, your family, friends, and your MOPAR, DO NOT USE A REBUILT MASTER CYLINDER, PURCHASE A BRAND NEW MASTER CYLINDER.....
PLEASE READ............................................ NOTE *** PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY OTHER BODY STYLE DISC BRAKE PARTS, THIS WILL CAUSE WHAT IS KNOWNED AS " BUMP STEER"PARTS NEEDED:
1. You will either need a 1970-74 B- E-BODY Mopar as a Donor Car, ( with Single Piston Calipers or a much easier car to find in the Salvage Yards, is a 1973-1976 A- BODY, either a Dart, Valiant, Duster, or Demon, but these years only.
2. I strongly suggest purchasing New Rotors, most cost about $32.00 ea, and I also strongly suggest purchasing a rebuilt set of Calipers, about $11.00 ea, and you can also get a "Loaded Caliper Set", this comes with the Pads, from Auto-Zone, Pep Boys, Discount Auto Parts, etc.
3. I also recommend that your replace both the Inner and Outer Wheel Bearings, and grease seal.
4. New Disc Brake Hoses. You must know, what year, the donor car is. Order for Disc/Drum
5. A new Master Cylinder Disc/drum ( you must know, what car, and year, that was the donor car ). There is a very important part in your New Master Cylinder, there is a little Black rubber sleeve, about 3/4" in diam. This will go one the Brake Pedel Push-Rod, without this little part, the push rod will not lock into the back of the Master Cylinder, Part Number, Mopar PN 2074960, from you Local CHRYSLER/PLYMOUTH/DODGE DEALER.
6. Off the donor car, be sure to take the Proportioning Valve, you will have to replace your existing valve, with the one, you took off the Donor Car. THIS IS A MUST, or you can purchase a Adjustable Valve. This will prevent the Brakes from Wheel Lock up.
7. Sway Bars, can be used, with no problem, you will need the attaching brackets, from either your own lower control arm, or from the Aftermarket kit, simply weld on the bracket, and you are home free.
Just remove the Steering Knuckle ( Spindel ) from your Drum Brakes, and replace with the Spindels from the Disc Brake, and install. DO NOT REPLACE YOUR UPPER AND LOWER CONTROL ARMS.
Bleed your entire Braking system, after you have replaced the NEW MASTER CYLINDER.
I strongly suggest "Bench Bleeding the New Master Cylinder, prior to installing on your car, see instructions, that come with the NEW MASTER CYLINDER.
Please check the condition of the Rear Braking System, at this time, and replace anything that looks bad, including Wheel Cylinders, Rear Rubber Brake Hose, on top of the rear end, and Brake Shoes and Hardware. Trust me, it's no fun, if you can't stop.
Mopar is a Registered Trade Mark, of the Chrysler Corp.
Please take the time to Read, Understand, and follow these conversion Instructions. This will make your Disc Brake Conversion, Safe, Fun, and trouble-free. I strongly suggest, using New or Rebuilt Calipers, Rotors, and Brake Pads. Let's get there Safe. THIS PROJECT SHOULD TAKE ABOUT 3 HOURS TO COMPLETE. THIS ALSO WILL PROTECT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND YOUR MOPAR.
PLEASE, SUPPORT YOUR CAR WITH THE PROPER JACK STANDS, AND PLACE A BLOCK BEHIND THE REAR WHEELS, THIS WILL HELP STOP YOUR CAR FROM ROLLING DOWN YOUR DRIVEWAY :)
