Re: Using Drum Spindle in Disc Conversion from Rick's
Thanks for all the great help everyone. I will be going with the kit from Matt's. I think I will have to save up a bit more and get new 15x7 rally rims and tires for the front (currently have 14"front and 15" rear) and get a vacuum reservoir. Seems like the simplest and best solution.
Dave, what is your vacuum at now?? they recommend 15" to 20" of boost is the Chilton's manual for power brakes. You should buy a vacuum tester from your local parts store, it is a great tool to have in your kit and I don't think they are very costly. Another member on the forum said that some 14" rims do clear the disc brakes but I will let an expert here verify that.
