Default Disk brake conversion problem

Hi Boris

ABS 8" booster & dual m/c (disc/drum) ABS Stock No 9787, Item No 270556931229.
This booster/m/c is designed for the '59 TBird with a/con.
It comes complete with the bracket & is set to the correct angle so it clears the a/c unit etc.
It also has the extended pedal rod so basically is a straight "bolt on" item.

I used this item on my '59 TBird & it was brilliant to say the least.
Great to feel safe having proper stopping power.

Good luck with the conversion.

I was in Orange Co. California last week and went by the ABS shop and warehouse. They are very knowledgeable and develop their kits by actually installing them in their shop. The previous week they had a 58 T bird in. The quality and workmanship of the parts looks very good. I bought a full kit -front 11" single piston brake conversion and an 8" dual master cylinder conversion with bracket for an AC car along with the proportioning valve for $960. I am installing it on a 58 T Bird. Based on their help and their shop I would definitely recommend them. Will let you know how the actual install goes. Andy Garner
PS-they will notch the caliper so you can run 14" wheels. I wanted to keep the 14" wheels until I decided on the right upgraded larger wheels.
