    Rear Brake Drums

    have to drill the drums. big bolt brakes don't fit re-drilled small bolt alxles. better off just getting the right axles in my opinion.

    Heads up to those that install a 2 bolt aluminum master cylinder.

    i had trouble finding an alum master cyl that wasn't beat to hell at the tim that i needed it. i ended up calling RMS and just getting a wilwood one that looks just like the mopar one. been working great for over a decade.

    Heads up to those that install a 2 bolt aluminum master cylinder.

    certian master cyl do not need the new push rod. they are drilled shallower then the original master cyl. the adapter plate makes up for the difference so you can use the stock push rod.

    Help me decide - Big or small bolt pattern?

    i prefer large bolt pattern. change the front and rear over. at the very least i prefer the larger rear drums over the tiny small bolt stuff. i'm running 11" drums in the rear.. plus its easy to go to rear disc if you ever wanted.. not sure if there is a small bolt rear disc kit out there...

    Can I use DOT 5 in this MC?

    if someone is worried about that then just bleed the brakes every spring and be done with it. i have been running dot 5 in our dart for close to 10 years now and haven't bled them or had any issues with them.

    HELP...Self Adjuster Lever Does Not Ride on Star Wheel Teeth

    when i have this issue its usually the new leaver. i dig out the original leaver (if i have it) and use that. seems to fix the issue. it seems the new ones don't have the correct bends to them.

    Check flares on preformed lines!

    that blows. one fitting though. im sure if you called them they would have made things right. i did my entire red express truck with inline tube and man did it fit nice. had maybe one or two small leaks at first but a partial turn on the fitting with a good line wrench did the trick. on...

    Thoughts on Drum to Disc Conversions…

    for something that doesn't have many options maybe. i had a 65 d100 that i bought scared bird stuff for because it was the best option for it at the time.. but with a big bolt abody mopar the factory 73-up stuff is a much better option and plentiful...

    Thoughts on Drum to Disc Conversions…

    go with the stock 73-up style.. give dr diff a call and get the brake kit, master cyl and proportioning valve all in one shot.. no need for power brakes.. 10.95" Front Disc Brake Kit (Stage 1) Contact i've called and ordered even though this says its online only..

    my manual brake experience

    I used a alum master from a 85 diplomat, AR engineering adapter plate and stock abody brake rod. The alumni master cyl has a shallower bore , the adapter plate makes up for it so the stock rod fits perfect.

    my manual brake experience

    I don't know. Our dart Has manual brakes (disc in front and 11" drum rear) and that thing stops awesome. Maybe you have something mismatched. With lower vacuum maybe you should go hydro boost.

    stock replacement type? what kind of price range? how much dust do they generate?

    73+ Caliper install

    correct... use F-body hoses.. or call bill at RMS or drdiff and get a pair of braided hoses.

    73+ Caliper install

    73-up cars use a different k-frame and sway bar all together so no the calipers on those are fine in front.. and no there are no geometry issues swapping spindles side to side.

    What kind of brakes do we have? Confused...

    Nice. That's a 73-up up. Order your brake stuff for something like a 74 duster with a 318 or 360.

    What kind of brakes do we have? Confused...

    Front is a 73-up abody disc set up. Rear is also big bolt pattern. Any idea what rear is in it? 7 1/4, 8 1/4 or 8 3/4???

    Pirate Jacks disc brake conversion kits

    Are they long because the calipers are rear mounted? When I decided to rear mount my calipers I needed a non-abody hose to make it work properly.

    Calipers to the front or rear?

    This a big bolt kit? If so they can go in any location. Most will put them to the rear in order to clear a sway bar.

    NEW BRAKES....DOT 5?

    been running DOT 5 in our dart for close to 10 years now.. no issues.. rusty is correct that it does not absorb moisture.. this usually means that the moisture will collect at the ends (wheel cyl and calipers) if that worries you too much just bleed them in the spring and fall and it will...
