I will add, it is anything but BASIC.
It is advanced and a real PITA. So you either have someone
else to do it for you and pay big bucks or DIY and suffer.
To add to the confusion from what I've learned on my 1969 Chevelle
conversion (which had factory front discs).
When upgrading to 4 wheel disc brakes:
- You have to change the proportioning valve for 4 wheel discs.
- Get the all brass proportioning valve
- You have to remove the hold off valve attached to the Booster.
- Appears that you have to get some type of 90 degree adapter
that is the opposite of a nipple. Name of fitting???
Go with the biggest rotor caliper combination that will fit.
If you don't, you'll be replacing your pads all the time.
Case in point, growing up my folks bought a Country Squire station wagon.
If I recall correctly because the front discs were so small (not really)
but still we had to do a front brake job something like every 9 months. It just ate brakes. Oh, and went through a lot of alternators and one transmission in 5 years.
Hope this helps someone. When I get some part numbers and figures
I can post them here.
