Hey all, I'm wanting to join the legions of people doing the drum to disk swap. Amazing how a little horsepower and crummy brakes can scare a guy.
Anyhow, my question pertains to the CBB swap in particular. I was checking with my local parts yards, and was able to locate plenty of 70's 1-1/4" truck calipers. Corvette rotors, however are entirely scarse and I've only been able to locate new pairs for $200 - 400 or so. Using these larger diameter rotors requires larger rims and tires. I think I'd like to use a smaller disk with this setup, like say, the 11" rotor that was on the truck where I found the calipers. Anyone know if that is possible?
Can I use a 70's truck rotor on my drum spindle or is there a reason you all are using the Corvette rotors? I know I won't get the same braking power that comes from a larger rotor, but am hoping you can tell me why the truck rotor / caliper swap may or may not be possible. Thanks in advance,
