Re: Rear Disk brake conversion
The way to do this is to take the time to create a cardboard template of the disc installation and see if it will spin inside the rear of your rims.
And I've done this.
I figure that a 1980 Cad. Seville 10.5" dia. e-brake system should fit dia-wise, but b/s-wise, I don't know??
I say this b/c if you look at the new rims, they all have their "spokes" or whatever out to the outside so the wider calipers can fit behind them. Look at some rear disc brake cars and you will see what I mean.
I can say all this b/c my car that was an all drum car now has my "pdqCBB" 13" rotor w/ big single piston calipers on homemade brackets on the front and 11.75" rotor w/ '80 Cad. Seville e-brake calipers on homemade brackets on the rear. It took me quite a while to figure out how to mount everything...
And thanks to Brian and Doug10 for their bracketry help too!!
