RE: Mopar Tapoered Axle Brake Coversion Link



Yep most def follow the grinding & drilling tip.  When I did mine, had NAPA press them out and new R/H lugs back in.  I had followed the tip and cut them off flush, then drilled the centers. They said their job was so easy with me doing that work, they charged me less labor.  

Here's my rear brake notes:

Thanks Dennis. That is the same article that is in a slightly different version linked on the 62-65 Tech page, about 1/3 the way down.  http://1962to1965mopar.ornocar.com/techstuff.html

http://www.crankshaftcoalition.com/wiki/Mopar_tapered_axle_rear_brake_conversion is the direct link. 

I don't know which version of that article appeared first, but I agree it is good information. Don't forget to use the tip reminder provided here by MO so you do not mushroom the threads on the axle.
