Why Classic Car Enthusiasts Trust
Engineered to Fit:

Each brake conversion kit we sell is designed and engineered to fit a specific vehicle and application. Every step is taken to make your conversion as much of a bolt-on as possible.

Support:

Individual hobbyist customers and dealer/installers praise our ability to listen and determine the best solution for each project. Have an issue or question? Or simply want to review an installation guide? Just call. We'd love to help.

Installation:

Making your installation easy really matters to us. We supply components that match the application, pre-assemble as much as possible and package everything carefully and in an organized manner while providing you with clear, concise instructions.

Pride:

Every part we use is carefully chosen as if we were going to install it on our own cars. Since we started in 1983 we've said, "If we can't be proud of it, we won't sell it."

"If we can't be proud of it, we won't sell it."

Fitment:

We use OEM style calipers which allow for a much easier wheel fitment and installation. These are the same calipers Ford originally used as an upgrade on the early Shelby Mustangs. In most instances, your original 14” wheels can be retained.

Precision:

Caliper mounting is now faster and easier with the addition of our precision CNC machined billet aluminum bracket. This part is stronger and more consistent in fit and finish than traditional steel brackets.

Protection:

Master Power Brakes kit helps keep you safer with the latest in modern braking components. This level of protection just wasn't available originally on your 1964 Ford Mustang.

Simplicity:

Our kit is a complete bolt-on system. Your original V8 5-lug spindles are retained and all of the components bolt directly to the spindles with zero modifications.

Serviceable:

We engineer our brake systems with serviceability and routine maintenance of your 1965 Mustang in mind. From a simple brake pad replacement to a complete overhaul, you’ll are able to find the parts you need at your local auto parts store. This way you can keep your car where it belongs, on the road.

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.
