Re: AAJ DISC BRAKE CONVERSION-Have you done it?

Sorry, I hit send prematurely. The right way to do it is to measure the how much the rod protrudes from the booster and then measure how far in the master cup goes. A perfect match is what is desired.

Re: AAJ DISC BRAKE CONVERSION-Have you done it?

The issue is if it is not in the right place and you adjust it, you will either get unintended extra pedal travel or cause the master cylinder piston to be slightly engaged while the pedal is at rest. In either case that's not a proper adjustment.

Re: AAJ DISC BRAKE CONVERSION-Have you done it?

Yes, I am aware of that. I have been cautioned over the years that it is NEVER to be touched under normal circumstances unless components are changed (which in this case a new master cylinder will require it). Everything on my car is still original (from the factory) and has not been apart, as it is...

Re: AAJ DISC BRAKE CONVERSION-Have you done it?

Thanks. Shop quoted $1200 labor for fronts. Only doing fronts. I've had 20 something of these cars and this is the only one where the brakes work fine, but I don't like where the pedal is (just a tad low-does not hit the floor, but not what i consider normal) so I'm going to do this conversion. Anyw...

AAJ DISC BRAKE CONVERSION-Have you done it?

Has anyone done the AAJ conversion on a 64-5-6 Imperial? If yes, any glitches? If you gave it to a shop, how much did they charge in labor?
Thanks

Re: 65 Imperial disc brake conversion

You have any pictures of the brake booster/master and lines? I have AutoPilot and it looks like it would be a tight fit on the side where the lines come out of the master you referenced (mancini)

Re: 65 Imperial disc brake conversion

It helps a whole lot!! THANKS! This is something i will have done by a pro as my back is no longer equal to the task-even though the 17 year old tinkerer living in my head wants to do it. To be clear, I am purchasing the rotors, calipers and seals locally (NAPA) but will buy his kit (and now, some s...

Re: 65 Imperial disc brake conversion

I am beginning to assemble the parts required to use his kit on my 66 Imperial. Going to purchase his suggested rotors and calipers, etc. But he also suggests dual master cylinder. Which one is right?Does Roger sell a viable Master Cylinder and proportioning valve too? Any tips welcome.
Thanks
