Re: 66 drum to disc brakes
Gordon, I believe they retail at about $2 each maybe less. I don't do any of the billing at my shop so I'm just guessing. I do know they do cost a little more than the stock umbrellas. I rarely install umbrella seals anymore, even on the exhaust side. Bill Ballinger just bought some, maybe he can let us know what he paid for them. I'm going into the shop today to work on my new motor (428) for a while, I'll see if I can't find out what they go for. Steve/ FishmasterFred

A lot of FTE'ers have names for their vehicles. I have
finally thought of one for my '53 F100. Because it
contains a lot of parts from other vehicles, such as a
Ford 400 with 351C heads, a Mustang II front
suspension, a 9" rear from a Torino, and even a few GM
(sorry about that) parts, as well a a myriad of Custom
and Speed parts. I have decided to call it
'Fordenstein' or 'The Fordenstein Monster'. Maybe I
should get a website (www.fordenstein.com), that
domain name is available.

After completing many different conversions (power steering, power disc
brakes, 360 2V to 390 4V, and Holley carb modifications) on my 69 F250's,
I've created a web site at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.csolutions.net/myth/ford/
I plan on adding more specific assembly/disassembly notes on each of the
4 conversion pages, as well as detailed carburetor notes & MPG for each
Please feel free to visit the site and offer any comments, questions, or
Was wondering if late model 1/2 ton disc brake parts will
bolt up to my 66 f100. And will I need the spindles too or
are they the same for disc or drum. I know I need the backing
plates, rotors, calipers, proportioning valve and master cylinder.
What year or years for a junk yard donor should I be looking for.
I was upgrading to Hella Halogen last night and was replacing the
adjusting nut and screw. The new nuts I have just kinda slop into the hole
loosely. Will it expand enough when I put the new bolt in to hold it in
place, or am I screwed. ( Bad pun intended. ) : )

You can swap the spindles if your king pins aren't frozen.
Otherwise, swap out the entire i-beams. 73-79 will work.
I've done two such swaps, both times swapping the spindles.
I've since found at that the 73-79 i-beams are stronger
and less prone to alignment problems so I'd recommend
swapping out the i-beams.
