Rear Disc Brake Conversion

After all these years of building cars, I am converting my 69 to rear disc brakes. Using the Right Stuff kit on my 12 bolt. The SS has stock front power disc brake with a 9" booster with matching chrome MC, the chrome adds more HP!!! Will I have to change the MC and distribution block is the question. Any tips on the install. . . looks fairly simple, right.

Yes. A disc/drum MC will not work with Disc/disc

Thanks I will replace the MC. How about the proportioning valve.

Re: Rear Disc Brake Conversion

I've not done the drum to disc conversion so I can't offer you an answer based on direct experience. Notwithstanding that fact, I'd put in an adjustable prop valve and remove or disable the prop valve on the subframe under the driver seat area. Also, I don't think you need the metering valve located under the distribution block by the MC either since you're removing the read drums.
