Info

Replace those old drum brakes with modern rear disc brakes. Mounts .81" x 11-3/4" Pro-lite vented iron rotors and calipers to 3" tube rear end. Complete with rotors, hats, metric calipers (7/16"-20 inlets), brackets, brake pads, caliper brackets and slider bolts.

Hat fits 5 lug hubs with 4-1/2", 4-3/4", or 5" bolt circle.

Notes

Brake pad and caliper installation note:  

This bracket features a 90 degree bend in the bracket at the slider bolt threaded area for additional caliper support.  This part of the bracket may or may not interfere with the corner of the inner brake pad backing plate due to differences in brake pad manufacturers.  When this occurs, it will be necessary to simply remove a minimal amount of backing plate material at each corner of the inner brake pad to allow for the necessary clearance between the bracket and brake pad when the caliper and pads are fully installed.

  • When it comes to a traditional style build on an early hot rod it just has to be rolling on a solid front axle of some sort. In this buyer's guide we take you through I-beam and round tube solid axles, spindle choices, radius rod needs, and more.
  • Follow along as Speedway Tech Kevin W. updates the brakes on his Bel Air with a modern disc brake conversion kit.
  • In this Tech Tip, a customer asked about finding a set of disc brakes for his 1949 Ford F1 pickup, with one caveat. He wants to use the factory wheels.
