Great photos. I might consider that conversion for my '76 F250. Will 16" rims clear the rear calipers?
By tomcasino


Yes, your photos are excellent. What about the emergency brake - the Chevy K20 calipers seem to be front ones.... so no e-brake?...
By Mr. Fixit


1) Yes, 16" wheels will clear the calipers 2) No e-brake :( 3) You can buy e-brake calipers for $300 from TSM. They come off a 1976 caddy eldarado.

Where did you get the '75 K20 rotors?
