5 lug front manual drum to disc brake conversion kit with the Flex-Connect under hood plumbing kit for 5 lug 65-66 Mustang, 8 CYL SPINDLES REQUIRED manual or power steering, manual or auto transmission.
This kit is compatible with 65-73 Mustang, 63-69 Falcon/Comet (60-62 as well with 63-65 upper control arm replacement), 62-69 Fairlane, 67-73 Cougar, 69-77 Maverick/Comet, 75-80 Granada/Monarch, and some Torino. This kit installs onto existing V8 drum brake type spindles. The spindles are not included. Users with pre 66 Falcon or pre 67 Mustang 6 cylinder cars will need to install 8 cylinder type spindles (our P/N 7365).
The kit includes everything needed to swap out your front drum brakes for OE Kelsey-Hayes type 4 piston caliper front disc brakes originally found on 1965-1967 V8 Mustang and other 60’s Ford cars. All new easy to install parts including dust shields, caliper brackets, corrosion protected calipers, brake pads, braided stainless steel brake hoses, hose brackets and attachment hardware, adjustable proportioning valve with convenient mounting bracket, a master cylinder with an integral residual pressure valve, master cylinder outlet adapter(s), an all metal master cylinder bleeding kit, an adjustable pushrod, wheel bearings, wheel seals, caliper attachment hardware, wheel attachment hardware, dust caps, performance slotted rotors with bearing races pre-installed, correct grade 8 attachment bolts, medium and high strength thread lockers, and high temperature wheel bearing grease. Note that you will need to adapt or re-fab your hard brake lines to accommodate the proportioning valve and the master cylinder.
Power brake versions include a correct power spec master cylinder, a booster, mounting brackets and hardware, and an adjustable push rod.
Most original V8 type14″ wheels will fit this conversion. This is the easiest kit to install, and the kit that you should choose if you desire to use your original wheels and/or maintain “originality”.
Texas orders will require Texas sales tax added to the total. We will contact any Texas orders for the additional tax.
