Power Disc Brakes DVD




DVD: Power Disc Brakes

Front disc brake conversions have become commonplace for many classic car enthusiasts. The added safety, performance and reliability make this conversion an essential upgrade for those enthusiasts who plan to enjoy their cars on the road. Mark Simpson takes you step-by-step through the process of installing a conversion kit. From removing all of the factory hardware to installing new brackets, rotors and calipers, you’ll see first hand how you too can improve the safety of your car, with just a few hours in the shop.

Next, Simpson takes you through the process to upgrade rear brakes, including the use of a drum puller. Then starting with a clean slate he takes you through the process of installing new caliper brackets, dust shields, rotors and calipers. While rear brakes only account for 30% of the stopping power of your car, Mark reminds us that should the front brakes fail the rear brakes become 100% of the ability of you to stop your car safely.

Having safely routed and cut to the correct length brake line is key to restoring a classic car properly. Even seasoned car restorers sometime struggle with bending and creating inverted flares in brake tubing. Simpson takes you through the process of bending brake line without kinks, properly cutting brake line and how to create a leak-free inverted flare.

Total Run Time: 63 minutes.
