Default Disk brakes, now the hard part...

Hi group,

Turns out the spindle swap was the easy part. The booster and master cyl. swap is a bugger! I spent all day yesterday fitting the booster to the firewall and the pushrod adapted.

I lengthened the pushrod using the end of the T'Birds original, and then had fun doing my contortionist act trying to get it all hooked up to the original, funky two part pedal. I think it'll work, as the stroke seems to be same for both the original and the 79 8 cyl Granada booster/master. (Thanks for that tip, BTW!) I probably should have taken the seat out, it'd have saved me alot of discomfort.

I did have to open up the hole in the firewall, raising it about 3/4", and enlarging all of the mounting holes with a rat tailed file. Fun too, getting washers and nuts on the 4 mounting studs, now on the inside of the firewall. I hope I never have to take the booster off...Today I hope to get it all plumbed and bled.

All in all though, it's going well, and giving me something to do while the snow falls.
