    3/16" brake lines will be just fine. We use 3/16" lines for nearly all of our brake kits, both front and rear.

    We typically recommend a 1" bore dual outlet master cylinder when using this disc brake kit but you could probably use the 7/8" bore as well. We haven't tried that particular combination but I believe is would work out fine.

    This disc brake bracket kit works with 1971-87 GM ½ Ton truck or equivalent calipers (not included). Speedway offers part number 91031044 that is a 1971-76 Impala caliper that will also work.

    You inquired about our basic bracket kit for the 57-64 half ton pickup number 91631985. This will utilize a two wheel drive rotor from 73-93 Ford pickups. The bearings are listed below and by deleting the three digit prefix the number can be cross referenced by your local supplier or jobber. 912TLM11949 CONE-OUTER WHL BEARING 912TLM11910 BRG "CUP" TAPERED OUTER 912TL68149 BRG CONE-INNER (TAPERED 8352300542 SLIDE BOLT, GM CALIPER 912S18580 SEAL 1.875"x 2.625in The same applies to the seal as far as getting locally. These rotors are a 5 on 5 ½ bolt pattern and utilize calipers from 71-76 Chevy Impala’s.

    1971-1976 Impala Calipers
    (Part #91031044)
                            These 1971-1976 Impala calipers are available individually. Choose left or right.
                        
    Wilwood 120-10936 D52 Dual Piston Floater Caliper, 2 Piston/1.28 Disc
    (Part #83512010936)
                            The D52 caliper is a direct bolt-on 2 piston replacement for the factory original single calipers on many 1968-96 GM Passenger Vehicles and Trucks. Forged billet aluminum bodies, stainless steel pistons, and competition style high-temperature seals put and end to the rust, bore pitting, and seal failures that plague the OE caliper design. D52 calipers provide low-maintenance performance and a huge weight savings with high temperature reliability for the street and track. D52 calipers mount in the stock location over stock rotors, use the original style OE D52 brake pads and an OE 7/16-20 banjo bolt brake line. Calipers can be used with most wheels that clear the OE calipers. The front calipers with 2.00 piston provide 6.28 cubic inches of piston area per caliper, to maintain the original front to rear brake bias and use of the OE master cylinder. D52 Calipers come hardened slide pins.
