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.

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.
