71 mach 1 drum to disc conversion
#1
Any help would be great we got aftermarket booster and master from npd went to install and it would not go through firewall boot was to big they say it is missing a bracket but it seems as though it will all be out to far over valve covers once installed any suggestions. Part #2005-22ab booster conversion seems to big any suggestions as to an alternative? Installed 1102-15sb disk brake conversion kit on front end. Thanks in advance Marc

No experience converting front drum to disk, but can you post some pictures of what you got so we can see where your problem might be?

Hello Marc,

I have converted two mustangs from drum to disc. I checked out the master booster kit from NPD, http://www.npdlink.com/store/products/bo...499-0.html and wow, that is a nice setup. I believe your issue lies in the part with number 2B180. I would check the hole size diameter of the 2B180 plate.

I SWAPPED DRUMS FOR DISC ON A 70 AND 72 . DIDNT USE POWER BOOSTER ON EITHER JUST PUT THE SPINDLES AND ROTORS NEW MASTER CYL AND PORP VALVE. NO POWER BUT THEY STOP 100 TIMES BETTER THAN DRUMS. HAVE THE ORGINAL POWER BOOSTERS FOR BOTH IN BOXES WITH PEDALS. I WAS TOLD THAT TO USE BOOSTER YOU HAVE TO CHANGE PEDAL BECAUSE OF ROD. TOO MUCH WORK UNDER DASH.

Marc,

What product did you go with? Maybe need to look into the Power Brake pedal.

Do you still have the drum brake parts? I'm looking for spindles and hubs.
