1963 Mercury Comet Front Disc Brake Conversion Kit - Rallye Series

1963 Mercury Comet Front Disc Brake Conversion Kit - Rallye Series

Rallye Series: Performance braking with 15” wheels and OE looks - The Master Power Brakes Rallye Series is a brake system converting original drum brakes to disc brakes using a late model OE style caliper. The system uses an OE style cast aluminum 2-piston caliper along with slotted rotors. This upgrade gives great modern braking capability while still keeping an OE style of appearance. All of this gives increased performance over the Legend Series but still allows the use of stock 15” wheels.

Price: $1,145.00

Available Options

Desired Front Brake Type and Application: (required)

Modern:

For the Rallye Series, we have developed a completely new caliper. The caliper is CNC machined from billet aluminum. It uses four stainless steel pistons that are double sealed for both pressure and weather meeting D.O.T. specifications. The caliper is finished in an attractive clear anodized finish giving your 1963 Mercury Comet a sharp look. We even go as far as using stainless steel abutments keeping the pads from wearing the aluminum body while keeping the pad movement and noise to a minimum.

Precision:

All of the brackets are machined from T-6061 billet aluminum and then finished with a black hardcoat finish. This gives your 1963 Comet a brake upgrade with not only good looks, but a bracket that can be held to exacting tolerances making the installation that much easier on your existing OEM spindles.

Quality:

Our Rallye Series brake conversion kit for the '63 Comet uses nothing but the highest quality components. Our unicast rotors are cast with a thick rotor surface and vented for proper brake cooling. For the rotors, we provide high quality Timken bearings that will provide years of trouble free driving.

Capability:

The systems we have developed under the Rallye Series brand are a high performing kit for use inside stock and aftermarket 15” wheels. That means your '63 Mercury Comet will get the performance of a larger rotor brakes system inside a smaller package. This is a great option for many RestoMods and restorations.

Includes:

When you receive a Rallye Series brake kit, you get everything necessary to install the system on your 1963 Mercury Comet. Every part from the dust caps to the stainless steel braided hoses and everything in between. If you purchase a power kit, you get the booster/master combination and a combination valve. Go with a manual kit and get the master cylinder and push rod along with the combination valve.

Please Note: The contents of your conversion kit are tied to your car's specific application type as selected above.

    Why are disc brakes better than drum brakes?
    Disc brakes are not subject to fade from heat or water. Disc brakes do not drift out of adjustment.

    What kind of brake fluid should I use?
    DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid is recommended. DOT 5 or silicone brake fluid should not be used.

    Does my new master cylinder need to be bench bled?
    Yes, any time a new master cylinder is being installed it will have to be bench bled.

    How much vacuum do I need for a power brake system?
    You will need to have 18" Hg with the car at idle.

    I just purchased a power disc brake conversion kit. Is the booster pin already set for my master cylinder?
    All of the power disc brake conversion kits and booster / master cylinder kits we sell have the booster pin correctly set for the master cylinder.

    What is a combination valve?
    A combination valve incorporates metering and proportioning into one valve providing all necessary valving for disc/drum systems.

    What are residual valves?
    Residual valves maintain pressure on the brake lines. These are used for under-the-floor master cylinder brake systems. They are available in two versions, 2 lb. for disc brakes and 10 lb. for drum brakes.
