Well designed

June 05, 2016
I have 37 Ford I beam axel with 47-59 1/2 ton Chevy truck spindles On my 55 Chevy gasser. The steering arm was relocated to the top spindle mount. Problem: caliper hit steering arm. Solution: flip flop left and right mounting calipers in front rather than rear. Even though it's not what we are used to seeing it's a race car and it was a bolt on solution with no other modifications which would come along with other undesirable complications and expense. This worked out great couldn't be happier .
Yes, I recommend this product.

Depth of new bearing race We Purchased you disc brake kit when you replace the bearing race do you install it at the same depth as the old one or pressed in all the way down. Also the spindle bearing adapter is only a slip fit is that ok? Thanks

You must always seat bearing races completely to the stop machined into a hub/rotor. If the inner bearing adapter is a slip fit then we recommend using sleeve retainer to keep it in place.

Answers

The bolt pattern on the rotors is for the passenger car pattern of 5 on 4 ¾ and will not accept the pickup wheels. The stock master cylinder may supply the needed fluid but a proportioning valve such as 91031353 would be needed to the rear to limit the brake pressure. We always recommend a dual reservoir master cylinder for the safety factor over a single reservoir.

Will this kit work on Chevrolet 1946 1/2 ton Pickup? Hi! And if it does, i wonder, is dual diaphragm better than single, on disc/drum application? Will item 9106002 or 9106005 master cylinder and 7" diaphragm work well with the brake kit? I understand that I probably have to modified the brackets to make it fit on my truck. Kind regards, Janne

No it will not work on 1946 body style trucks. It is for the 1947 to1954 AD (Advanced Design) body style trucks and 1955 to 1959 trucks.

Kit number 91031916 will work on your half ton Chevy pickup without problems. Master cylinder and booster kits 9106001 or 9106005 with 1” bore master cylinders would be a great match up for your application and to get full power assist you will need 18-20 inches of vacuum at the booster. Large reservoir plumbs to the front disc brakes and if under the floor residual valves in both the front and rear lines are required. In the line to the rear an adjustable proportioning valve will be needed for correct braking and control.

Kit number 91031916 works on 1941-59 Chevy half ton pickups with out modification to the spindles. It comes with a bearing and seal adapter that is either heated and slid on or pressed onto the spindle for the necessary change in O.D. to the spindle for the seal and inner bearing. This kit will NOT work on a 53 passenger car spindle as there will be no place to bolt the steering arms.

Brake kit #91031916 does not require machining or modification to your original 1941-59 Chevy half ton spindles. The kit comes with a bearing and seal adapter that can be pressed on the spindles or simply heated to expand and then slid on the spindle.

Disc brake conversion kit number 91031916 will work on 41-59 Chevy and GMC half ton pickup spindles only. It will not work on the ¾ or 1 ton pickup spindles. The kit does NOT require modification to the spindles and comes with a bearing and seal adapter to increase the O.D. of the inner spindle to use readily available bearings and seals.

I built and sold a 57 Chevy gasser frame using a 52 Chevy 1/2 ton front axle and this Speedway disc brake kit. I also used an 8" Chevy firewall mount dual reservior from Speedway to go with the disc brake kit. Everything bolted right up and worked perfectly.

Part number 91031916 On a 4 wheel disc set up a 1” bore is recommended for standard hydraulic brakes and a pedal ratio of 7 to 1 or greater. If you have the option of power brakes then a 1 1/8” bore master could be used to help limit pedal travel. Attempting to use the larger bore master without power assist would require more pedal pressure to stop the car than is normally available.
