Re: 64 dodge brake conversion



Lyle, I used a front disc brake conservation on my 65 Satellite by The Right Stuff. I've used them several times and have always pleased. I had the same problem with the proporting valve leaking at fitting where the brake linecomes into the valve and where it exited. They sent me a second one- same problem. I noticed in Jeggs that Willwood had fittings with sealer on the threads. I bot a pack, installed them and fixed my problem. I've had no more leaks. I think there is a slight pitch in the threads and the thread sealer takes care of it. I hope this helps someone.

Hi Jason

I chose a Master Power kit. My car is a '63 Plymouth Sport Fury which had power brakes. I wasn't worried about wheel size, I have 17" rims on it.

The kit was pricey, but it came with everything, all the way down to the dust caps, (which are too shallow). I had a friend with a lift do the work as I had gathered parts to rebuild the entire front end at the same time. He tried to use the supplied brake booster and brake pedal bracket but it just wouldn't fit. We reverted back to my original booster and their dual chamber Master Cylinder with Proportioning valve. After assembly, the proportioning valve wouldn't quit leaking, and the brakes would bind up when the car got hot. I ended up pulling the M/C off and adjusting down the push rod on the booster and ended one problem. As for the proportioning valve, Master Power kept sending me replacements, which gets old pretty quick. They say they cant be serviced, but I took one apart, and it was a mess. I deburred the bore and assembled it correctly and hopefully I'm good to go. Next spring we'll know.

Long story short... I guess I got what I payed for.... the proportioning valve is imported and poor quality. Only Willwood makes their own. Their kit is very complete and allows you to retain your own spindles which was important to me. Their calipers are really slick and add to the look I wanted.
