Q & A

What's in the Box

Easily install 11" rotors and 1978-88 GM Metric calipers to your 1937-48 Ford passenger car style spindles with no machine work needed. This disc brake kit is great for street rods based on 1932-1948 Fords. For lightweight cars like T-buckets or early roadsters, we recommend the Wilwood kits. This front disc brake conversion kit works well with bolt-on steering arms. The 11" diameter rotors have the GM wheel bolt pattern of 5 x 4-3/4". Calipers have 7/16"-20 inlets.

Wilwood 290-0632 570 Brake Fluid, 12 oz Bottle
(Part #8352900632)
                        

Wilwood's specially formulated Hi-Temp 570° Racing Brake Fluid has a minimum 570 degree dry boiling point to withstand the severe heat requirements of automotive racing. Hi-Temp 570's low viscosity allows easy bleeding of your brake system, eliminating aeration of the brake fluid caused by foaming due to excessive pumping of the pedal. 

This high temp brake fluid comes in a convenient 12 ounce container hermetically sealed to guarantee against unwanted absorption of moisture which can drastically lower the fluids boiling point (fluid from larger containers tends to become contaminated with moisture, lowering its boiling point and making it unsuitable for racing applications). 

  • Dry Boiling Point:  573° F
  • Wet Boiling Point:  313° F
