At Master Power Brakes, we’ve always offered a front disc brake conversion kit for the 1953-1962 Chevrolet Corvette but haven’t been able to offer a rear kit due to packaging reasons. With the recent change to all of our disc brake conversion kits for the car and truck applications, we decided to take a second look at the C1 Corvette and see if there was anything we could now do. What we found made us very happy.
Let’s be clear up front – if your brake fluid has not been changed in over a year, you are past-due to replace it. Brake fluid is hygroscopic- it naturally absorbs water from humidity present in the air. Therefore, it requires regular maintenance

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.

If you are a person that enjoys bleeding a master cylinder, you are a rarity!! The traditional method of bleeding a master cylinder involves a pair of rubber hoses that have to go from the ports on the master cylinder up and into the reservoir. Invariably, as soon as you start the process, one of the hoses pops out and slings brake fluid all over the shop and that is when you wish there was another way.
