Thoughts on this Disc Brake Conversion Idea:
Car is a stock 1968 Barracuda with manual drums and a 7.25 SBP- 14 stock wheels
While I have a LBP 7.25 to swap, I would prefer NOT to rip apart the rear--its rust free and perfect.
Came across this...
This is obviously not an OE replacement rotor that can be bought at normal parts store.
This seems to be a 5x4 rotor NOT for the early 2 piston setup.
MBM markets the conversion spindles they sell as exact Mopar replicas---so my thoughts/hope are these would work with OE Mopar spindles. Calls for the same A2/A17 wheel bearings
Upper Control Arm:
This uses the later style Large Ball joint
Stock Mopar Disc Brake Spindle from a 74 Duster (Large Ball Joint)
I would then use the K781/K783 Standard Large Ball Join---Calipers, Pads, Dust Shields, Caliper Brackets would all be Mopar OE
Master Cylinder is a question as well. Could I use the 73 manual disc/drum unit or thought on a power setup?
Prop valve...? I assume I would need the disc/drum prop valve?
Any thoughts on this?
If that rotor works, it would seem to yield the 73--Later style 5x4 disc setup that Mopar never made.
Keeping in mind that you have a non-stock rotor
Would it be advisable/necessary to switch to the 73-later Tie Rods as well?
Or this this just nonsense—should I swap out the LBP 7.25 that is in my garage and be done...?
