New Product: Hard Line Kit For 1964-1966 Ford Mustangs

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on May 31, 2019 3:58:28 PM

Not everyone has proper brake line tools. As a result this can make doing an installation of a disc brake conversion kit a bit frustrating. It can lead to challenges in getting the lines routed properly to valve locations and connection ports. The lack of the proper tools can also lead to a look that's less than desirable.

Many of you have mentioned that having a hard line set would make life a lot easier when doing a disc brake conversion. So we listened and we are very proud to introduce our very first hard line kit. What makes our hard lines unique is that they are not a reproduction. These lines are specifically made for 1964-1966 ford mustangs using Master Power Brakes products.

Tech Tip: Don't Forget The Tools For The Brake Lines!

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on May 31, 2019 3:37:35 PM

Much of what we like about a well-built street rod or muscle car can be considered art. From the exterior paint to a custom leather interior or even the high-performance engine, everything takes a skilled craftsman and an ability to make things happen at a high level. Many of these people should rightfully be considered artists.

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

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on May 1, 2019 11:27:00 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 receive this question all of the time. The good news is we have a tool that can be used to answer these questions. 

So what is this tool? It is a very simple wheel fitment template that our R&D department has created that is application specific and available for our most popular kits. 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.

How To: Video Demonstration of a Rear Drum to Disc Brake Conversion

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on Apr 29, 2019 5:07:54 PM

On every vehicle, you should find brakes on the both the front and rear axles. Early on, that consisted of drums on the front and drums on the rear. Over time, that changed to disc brakes on the front and some vehicles going to disc on the rear while others stayed with the drum brake option. The reasons for continuing with rear drums can be quite vast but usually involved an engineering reason over most of our heads or a cost reason at the OEM level. In our world, we can usually throw out the cost reason and look at it strictly from an engineering or performance level. Disc brakes are simply going to perform better on your classic car.
