At Master Power Brakes we are in and among brakes everyday of the week and as a result some things have become second nature to us. We talk about processes and even perform them quite often and sometimes we don’t stop to think that others might not actually realize or understand what we are talking about or doing. The bleeding of brakes is one of those things. We assume that everyone knows what it means to bleed the brakes and how to go about doing. However when we actually speak to someone it can become really obvious that we need to take a step back and explain the process. So with that being said let's discuss what bleeding the brakes truly means, how to do it and why.

Goodguys is returning to Charlotte for the 25th Annual Southeastern Nationals and so are we!
For Master Power Brakes, this is truly a home event. We are located just north of the speedway in Mooresville, NC (also known as Race City USA) and truly look forward to this event every year. But you don't have to come here because we will be with you at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and to make it even easier on you, we will be located just about dead center of the speedway inside the Nascar Cup Series garage building. We will be at our booth every day during show hours from 8am-5pm; Friday October 19th and Saturday 20th. Please note that this years show will only be a 2 day event.
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.
