Re: CPP Disc Conversion - Good and Bad

Thanks for the write up. Are you running the 12" rotors from CPP? I am getting ready to order, but don't want to switch wheels.
I have about 14.5" across. Do you know the inner diameter on your new rims?

In regard to the rims, I've decided to buy the Cragar rims shown below as they'll fit my Coker white walls at 15x7 and at $60, I can't beat it.

Anyone have experience with these?
I'm running those Cragar wheels on my '66. 15x6 front and 15x8 rear. Cant beat them for the price.

Re: CPP Disc Conversion - Good and Bad

You need a 1" bore clutch master. That is what I supply in my kit for those with the '60-'62's that are keeping the original clutch slave cylinder.

Re: CPP Disc Conversion - Good and Bad

Your brackets seem to be really popular in this forum and others. Using your kit to complete the power brake conversion on my 61, I'd need a booster, brake MC, and some split brake lines, right?

Re: CPP Disc Conversion - Good and Bad

That and if you are changing to front discs, you will need a disc/drum proportioning valve also.

I went with captainfabs setup and works great!
