Disc Brake Conversion Kits for Classic Ford Trucks

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on Dec 18, 2013 2:45:38 PM

In the past year or so, the 1963-1972 Ford trucks have definitely become a hot commodity. Master Power Brakes has always had and provided a disc brake conversion solution for these trucks, but our kits  included a spindle from a later application that required removal of the king pins during installation. This is not the end of the world but it does mean an additional step that nobody enjoys--especially if king pin replacement isn’t necessary. The spindles from our older kits have become very difficult to obtain so we decided it was time for a change. Our new front disc brake conversion kits for older Ford trucks are a huge improvement!

We now offer two different kits for these trucks. The first is our Legend Series. Like other versions of the Legend Series, this system is built using an OE style single piston caliper. The big change is that we have developed a two-piece rotor assembly with an aluminum center hub for this application. Unlike other two-piece systems on the market, this rotor looks and acts just like a conventional rotor.Got Questions?  Speak With A Specialist Now!

The aluminum hub with the rotor allowed us a way to create the space needed to properly locate the caliper and to keep the track width the same as the factory. Bottom line, this is a brake system that works like it should and fits better than anything previous.

The other kit we developed for the Ford truck falls into our Rallye Series. We are using some of the same parts as in the previously mentioned Legend Series like the rotor but for the Rallye Series, we have added a cross-drilled and slotted outer rotor ring with a zinc-wash along with our billet aluminum 4-piston caliper. We even include braided stainless steel hoses for the Rallye Series.

Either the Legend Series or the Rallye Series is available as a complete bolt-in solution for either manual or power brakes giving you a model specific disc brake conversion system. Everything needed to make the installation will be included with whichever kit you should decide. The wheel fitment required for either the Legend or the Rallye Series is a 15” wheel. The bolt pattern is the same as stock therefore allowing stock 15” wheels to work.

If you have questions or would like more information, drop us an email or give us a call. We are extremely excited about these kits and would love to share more information.Master Power Brakes Expert
