Legend Series Disc Brake Conversion Kit For Ford Mustangs

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on May 1, 2018 10:46:01 AM

In 1964, the Ford Motor Company introduced arguably one of the most popular cars ever in the Ford Mustang. Over the years, these cars have been everything from a simple cruiser to a full-on race car. They are timeless and seem to fit everyone’s requirements for what a cool car should be. While they may look good and are loved because of that, they suffer from the same thing that many cars suffered from back then and that was what we know of today as quality disc brakes. There were some exceptions to the rule during this time but for the most part, the vast majority of the Mustangs produced up through 1973 came as a drum brake equipped vehicle.

The Silent Drive Vacuum Pump

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on Apr 2, 2018 5:57:00 AM

Big cams can wreak havoc in a vehicle with a power brake booster. The bigger the cam, the lower the vacuum number. Inherently, the lower the vacuum number the harder the brake pedal is to press. This doesn’t have to be the case. With our Silent Drive Vacuum Pump, you can remove the engine from the equation and use our stand alone pump to provide the vacuum necessary to properly run a vacuum brake booster. The drawback to a vacuum pump has always been the noise. With the use of our OEM quality rotary style motor, noise is a thing of the past.

What is a Bellcrank Assembly?

How a power brake conversion mounts to the firewall can be more than what you might think. We recently had a customer that wanted to mount his booster directly to the firewall and didn’t understand why he couldn’t do that and why the bracket assembly we use is necessary. We take it for granted but in thinking further about it, we thought we might need to explain. On a lot of our applications, we use a bracket assembly between the booster and the firewall that we commonly refer to as a bellcrank assembly. At first glance, it looks like a simple method of locating the booster on the firewall however there is much more to it than that.
