Why Master Power?
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."

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.

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.

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.

Simple:

Perhaps this is the perfect weekend project to tackle on your 1968 Chevrolet Camaro in just a few simple steps - break apart the ball joints from the spindles, remove the spindle and drum brake assembly from your 1968 Camaro, and you’re ready to install our disc brake conversion kit . Bolt on our Legend kit, bleed the brakes… reattach the ball joints and you are done.

Serviceable:

We engineer our brake systems with serviceability and routine maintenance of your '68 Camaro 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.

Factory:

When putting together a disc brake conversion kit for the A-body, F-body and X-body GM vehicles, we followed what the factory did. That means your '68 Chevrolet Camaro gets the same large single piston GM calipers, brackets stamped like the originals, thick vented rotors and even the backing plates.

Steer Arms:

To make your life as headache-free as possible, we have taken a step that will make brake installation on your '68 Camaro much easier. To install the steer arms on the spindles, you traditionally have to remove the rotor for access to the bolts. Not with our system. We use a high quality stud that we press into the spindle before we assemble anything. What does that mean for you? After you have removed your factory steer arm from your original drum spindle, simply slide it over the studs and install two nuts. Done!

New:

You have decided to upgrade your classic 1968 Chevrolet Camaro to disc brakes. Don’t cut corners with kits that use remanufactured brake components. Everything in our kits is all brand new. We only use the best available, new components when assembling our kits.

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.
