Here is an update on my JL8 project, it's not all correct/original but more to my preferences.
My curret "JL8" setup consists of:
new delco calipers with stainless sleeves from VetteBrakeProd,
Bought the caliper brackets from ebay(same guy as www.crossram.com)
Will be using my original backing plates with slight massaging of the outer lip,
bought a set of drum hubs (needed to be turned in a lathe, way too much runout),
original disc spindles,
manufactured a set of caliper/bracket support plates(the simple flat iron from the steering arm bolt to the caliper bolt, these would have cost 100$ by the way
thought about using my original hose frame brackets but not sure if the brake line fits to these,
need to get (or manufacture) a set of caliper side line brackets, originals are a bit too short for the corvette caliper,
New raybestos brutestop rotors (I still got some runout 0.001maybe, I think it's the new rotors?!?)
Original booster (maybe hydrobost in the future),
Original (-style) mastercylinder + all disc/drum valves.
Have not looked at brake hoses yet, Probably going to go with any of the stainless hoses on the market, but still not sure what to do with the caliper side: here's the problem, there is no nipple in the caliper inlet port ( it has the 7/16 treads but the small brass nippple in the bottom that the line flares against is missing) the port seems to be for the regular banjo / hollow bolt type setup.
I'll be using probably drums in the rear?. I'm also rebuilding my ford9" and have not looked at any brakes for that rear. They sell a fairly cheap disc kit for the ford 9" but I'm not sure how the piston bores size / e-brake lines will work with my original booster/e-brake cables?
Please give me your opinnions/thought about this setup. Especially if you have experience with the brake hose problem and ford rear brakes.
