1961-71 Dodge Truck Disc Brake Conversion, All MOPAR! : Exline Shop Projects

1961-71 Dodge Truck Disc Brake Conversion, All MOPAR!

by kenny exline on 04/20/14

  I finally was able to take my 68 D100 for a test drive with the new disc brake conversion and it was great! I had a load of drywall in the bed  and the brakes stopped it with no problem. When I still had the factory drum brakes on the front they would get hot and not work very well but the disc brakes I didn't have any problem at all. I used a manual master cylinder for a 77 new Yorker and it bolted up to my original firewall holes and even the original brake lines. I was also able to use the original front brake hoses, so you don't even need to change that. If you wanted power brakes you could upgrade to a power brake booster with no problem. I used 11.75" rotors but if you wanted to use 14" wheels you could use the smaller 11" rotor instead. 


 Here are a couple pictures of the install on my work truck..

I think your kits and parts are awesome! I just acquired a 1969 D100 Sweptline Custom and needed some of the parts and brake conversion just as you have created! Now to get the project started and make the 2015 Hot August Nights show in Reno,NV

This kit will be available through wayne at www.theramman.com . This was the first kit that we made. I know he has made a couple kits now and is working on some of the details to mass produce them. I will be able to sell the kits when they become available but I do not have a date right now. I have ran mine since spring and they work very well.
