Tech Talk with Master Power Brakes

New Caliper Mounting Bracket Design Improves Brake System Performance for GM A, F, and X Body Models

Posted by toby on Aug 16, 2014 4:41:51 PM

For many years, Master Power Brakes (and every other company offering disc brake conversions) has simply used the General Motors thought process for converting drum brakes to disc brakes on the 64-72 GM A-body, 67-69 GM F-body and the 64-74 GM X-body vehicles. We aren’t saying what General Motors did was wrong, but we felt it was time to re-visit this system and approach it with a new line of thinking for our Legend Series.

Upgrading the Ford Galaxie With Disc Brake Technology

The conversion is designed much like the original Mustang disc brake option using low profile 4-piston calipers that bolt to an original V-8 spindle.
