i would definitely be down for a set if you can figure out an ebrake solution.
I have three sets sitting in boxes if anyone is interested.
thought i should copy and paste for others that may be interested.
Just checking to make sure I am getting the correct rotors to work with your brackets. Information I am finding shows that the front Mustang rotors are 10.865 and the rear rotors are 10.51. Should I keep looking?
I stuck a bit at this point Caliper is behind the axle in 3 or 9 o clock position and is hitting the leave spring with the spring of the emergency brake.
Here's the picture he sent me. Looks like when I install my rear end I will have the same issue. Taking mine setup all apart to re-examine everything
I will have to double check mine but I believe that caliper is on the wrong side
I went with Intrepid front rotors, metric GM calipers and Speedway brackets with popular GM front hoses....
The calipers are marked left and right so the way they are orientated with the mounting bracket, the spring will be in contact with the rear springs. Buschi sent me a couple of pics on how he had to redrill mounting holes. I'll post them shortly
Here's the pics Buschi sent me after he re-drilled one of the brackets so there would be no interference with the leaf springs and calipers
I have been using the same template since the beginning. This is the first time I have run into this problem after over 100 sets. Yes the calipers are on correct like mine. I am confused why it is not right on his setup. Something has to be different
When assembled, mine would have the same problem as he did with the caliper spring hitting the leaf spring. If calipers were swapped from side to side, then the bleeder would be on the bottom. If the springs were relocated, then there would be no problem. However, looks like he did not relocate his springs and neither will I be doing it. Maybe you can post a close-up pic of how yours are orientated for both brackets and caliper.
I looked closer at mine today and since I relocated the springs I can see that they could hit the spring. My setup would not but it was close. I will now modify the jig so it is corrected for future buyers. Thanks for bringing this up as nobody has said anything was wrong or had any issues.
Yes, they would have hit the springs on his and will on mine unless I re-drill mine. I assume we're talking about the bracket that is bolted to the axle studs? What's the chance of getting a pair of the corrected brackets as I am not ready to install the rear end?
hm, a nice new pair of brackets.. well, I have another Point while we are here. The bracket A which is the one bolted on the axle. It is Plasma cutted and I assume you drilled the holes first and cutted later? I am asking because the bracket is a little bent I saw as i was drilling new holes. Guess the heat from the Plasma cutter made that. And I also had to open a bit the holes for the screws to Mount the other bracket for the caliper.
I pm'd you about the brackets. it is cut out with a torch now to ease some of the cost. There is possible warpage. I used to machine every single piece but it was starting to drive up the cost too much so i changed gears many many brackets ago. If the torch is set perfectly i can get a hacksaw looking cut.
Are you still selling these?
Yes i still sell these. Now with a few extra modifications for the problem that was just brought to my attention.
Will this kit fit an 8&1/4 rear ? The backing plates for an 8&1/4 drum brake setup are the same bolt pattern as an 8&3/4.
I just looked at my 8.25 to compare it to my 8.75. i don't believe it will fit the 8.25; I'd probably go with the Hrand Cherokee disc conversion on the 8.25 (which is what I'm doing with this axle.
The 8 1/4 has 4 bolt backing plates and 8 3/4 and up have 5
My 10" drum backing plates off a 7&1/4 bolted right up to an 8&3/4" no problem. It looks like the 8&1/4 is the same pattern and spacing though it only uses 4 bolts instead of 5. If so this kit may be able to be used on an 8&1/4. Anybody have a set of 7&1/4 BBP or 8&3/4 backing plates they can test fit on an 8&1/4 ? I am prob gonna go with an 8&1/4 for now as i dont have all the pieces for an 8&3/4. But if its something thats swappable.
Matt - I've got some 8.75 plates I can check on the 8.25. I will also check the fit of this disc brake set up and see what happens. I am waiting on a set of revised brackets for my 8.75 so the calipers won't be touching the springs
Ok cool. Thanks Don.
can i get a revised set as well ? to a US address where i am the first 2 weeks in may.
