Fixing a Power Brake Problem Using An Electric Vacuum Pump

Posted by mpbrakes1 on Feb 16, 2017 10:32:50 AM

One of the greater luxuries for classic musclecars with nose-heavy big blocks is power brakes. While some would rather have the full feedback of a manual brake pedal, the soft touch of a power booster-assisted master cylinder is sometimes more of a blessing than a luxury.

Will a Disc Brake System Fit My Car's Wheels?

Posted by mpbrakes1 on Jan 24, 2017 11:38:19 AM

Wheel fitment is a huge concern when doing a disc brake conversion. Will my stock wheels fit? What wheels do fit and what wheels don’t fit? These are all very good questions. In fact, we received an email just the other day from a potential customer and he was asking these very questions. Well, we have a tool that can be used to provide these answers but unfortunately people don’t seem to know about it or are not sure on how to use it.

So what is this tool? It is a very simple wheel fitment template. Our R&D department has created a template that is application specific and available for our most popular kits with more and more coming down the road. The template gives a cross section of the disc brake system that can be placed within the wheel to determine if adequate clearance is available. The use of it is very simple and if you’ll read a little further, we’ll walk you through it and give some pointers.

MP Brakes Puts the Binders On This Gorgeous 1969 Hemi Road Runner

Posted by mpbrakes1 on Jan 12, 2017 3:49:14 PM

When this 1969 Road Runner came into the shop in 1990, little did Tony Gemza know that it would come with a story. The man above is Johnny Janzyk, and he acquired the Road Runner from Tony’s father. The elder Gemza was doing restorations as a part-time business, and this car was part of a pair of Mopars that were towed back to New York from California. It had a blown engine, but was a solid car with lots of potential.
