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:

Looking for simple, look no further. If you can remove the original 1971 Chevrolet Nova drum brake assembly from the spindle, you can install our 1971 Nova disc brake conversion kit. Once the drum assembly is removed, everything assembles on the spindle without removing it from the vehicle. Assemble and bleed, that is all that is necessary.

Precision:

To maximize strength and keep things compact, we have chosen to manufacture the caliper mounting brackets from two different materials. The primary bracket is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and hardcoat anodized black. The secondary bracket is laser cut from 3/8" steel and finished in an attractive gold finish.

Includes:

When you receive a Legend Series '71 Nova brake kit, you get everything necessary to install the kit on your vehicle. Everything from the dust caps to the flexible brake 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.

New:

You have decided to upgrade your '71 Chevrolet Nova to disc brakes, don’t cut corners with kits that use remanufactured components. Everything in our kits is all brand new. We only use the best available, new components when assembling our kits.

Serviceable:

We engineer our brake systems with serviceability and routine maintenance 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.

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.
