    hey everyone. I have a question. When doing a disc conversion on a 14 ff what rotors do you use and what calipers? also i seen there is a hub to be pressed into the rotor? I think...

    also could anyone lemme know the dimensions of their brackets and the size of the 4 spacers?

    I assume that the spacers and plate bolt into where the old backing plate from the drums was?


    Any body with info that would be great.


    Thanks. Ryan

    You use 3/4 ton GM rotors. Use the 77-79 Cadilac Eldorado calipers if ya want to retain the e-brake. If not, you can use the 3/4 GM calipers too. The hub from the 14b gets pressed into the 3/4 ton rotor. As far as the brackets...there are numerous people on this board that sell them...Along with the spacers. Usually between $70-$90 depending on the person. And yes....The bracket and spacers go in place of the old drum backing plate. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Caddy calipers are 76-78 Eldorado, not 77-79.

    make sure they are forn an eldorado, the seville ones look very similar, actually the case is the same. there are two differences; the piston heigth and ebrake brackets. I peronaly have and use the seville brackets. i have pics if you want to compare.

    ARQ.
