I just picked up a 59 stepside. Sitting for 20yrs so brakes are shot. All original except metal floor in bed. 292 3spd. I would like to upgrade & have found some part info on disc brake conversion. I dont want to buy a kit! I have even tossed around the idea of converting to 4wd. What I havent found (limited internet time) is what power master cylinder will bolt in. I thought one day I read that there was one that was a direct bolt in but cannot find the post now. Someone suggested a ranger m/c. Can anyone help me out? Please :-)
Thx! I think I found where u posted this on another thread just minutes ago. Im having to search from my phone so it is a slow go for info. Do you have the rotor, bearing, caliper, & hose info? I have found some info here but would like to confirm. I see u have a f350 so your will be different.
If you are staying with the drums and just want power you might want to check out a hydro-vac unit like the bigger trucks used. I had a 57 F-350 with one and it was the best brakes of any vehicle I have ever owned, and with stock drums. The unit mounts remotely.
