Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Has anybody here used the 76-78 Cadillac Eldorado rear calipers on their truck with the emergency brake cables? If you did then what cables did you use?

Are there any aftermarket D52 style calipers with E brake that would fit the D52 style conversion brackets?

If not then I will just buy some 76-78 Cadillac rear calipers from Autozone, but I dont think they come with any brackets or springs.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Check with Ruff Stuff Specialties for new calipers with the e-brake. If you do get a pair from your local auto parts store, I do also make the levers and brackets and sell them with the springs. There are no other calipers with an e-brake that will interchange with the D52 calipers. That is why the '76-'78 Eldorado calipers are the only other calipers on the parts list.

The price on these is $237.00 plus a flat rate shipping of $15.05 anywhere in the USA. These brackets are also available powder coated in satin black for an additional $28.00 This pricing is always current and up to date. If you are outside of the USA contact me for a shipping price. What is included for this price is shown in the first pic, which includes the 3 piece assembly for both sides, plus all the necessary grade 8 hardware for mounting to your differential.

For payment I accept PayPal and money orders. If you would like a set, post in this thread. [/QUOTE]

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

I keep post #1 of all of my for sale threads updated just as it says, 10 years old or not. I fabricate all of my products everyday. This is one way I attempt to make a living. I am currently about a week out on building and shipping orders.

I replied to your PM. In your PM you did not specify which bracket set you wanted.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

It seems your bracket and spring kit does not work for 1976-1978 Cadillac Eldorado calipers as that is what I have. I have those because I was told that that the later 79-85 calipers will not bolt up to your caliper brackets as they are a different bolt pattern or else I would have purchased the 79-85 calipers.

My calipers are like the ones posted by Twisted78ss posted on page 15 as his right caliper does not have a bolt hole in order to attach the lower e-brake bracket and neither of my calipers have that hole either.

I will try to figure out how to post a pic of my calipers although I dont see how that will help now that I have seen what was posted on pages 12 and 15 and the lack of bolt holes to attach that bracket.

I would like your input on this as to what needs to happen so I can move forward.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Everything that I make is exactly for what I say the application is. I do not make parts that do not fit or work. Those levers, cable brackets and springs ARE for the '76-'78 Eldorado calipers and not for the '79-'85 calipers. You have to drill and tap a 5/16"-18 hole to bolt the cable brackets to the calipers. There is no other way to mount a cable bracket to those calipers. Not all of the '76-'78 Eldorado calipers have the threaded hole for bolting the cable bracket to them. I assumed you were aware of this since you asked about purchasing the levers, cable brackets and spring kit from me. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please return it for a refund.

I was aware that some 76-78 Eldorado calipers being sold did not have the levers and brackets so I would need to buy them separately. But absolutely did not know that they didnt even have a hole for the bracket to bolt onto. I dont think anybody would have thought about that being a thing.

I dont know where exactly to drill the hole or know anybody who can do that. I will see if I can find somebody local who can but if not I will contact you for refund then. I would rather have them work.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Hey is there any way you can tell me what size hole, what size bolt goes into the hole and if the hole is supposed to go all the way through the caliper?

Maybe how long the bolt should be also? That would be great and I would appreciate the info and help. Thanks.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

The allen socket bolts included with the kit are for attaching the cable brackets to the calipers. They are 5/16"-18 x 3/4" bolts. That is why I previously said that you need to drill and tap 5/16"-18 holes to mount the cable brackets. The tap drill size is a F drill. If you do not have one of those a 1/4" drill is .007" smaller. Yes the hole should go all the way thru the outside of the caliper. There is nothing exact about where the cable brackets can be attached. Look at the pics on page 15 and you will see where they need to be placed with the large hole centered over the slide bolt. The pin is sup[posed to be up against the side of the caliper to keet the bracket from rotating. They do not have to be exact.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

On page 15 you mention cutting the extra nubs off calipers in order to make the E-brake brackets function properly.

Both my calipers have that extra nub.

Do I need to cut the nubs off my calipers in order to make the E-brake brackets work or did you change your design so that modification is not required?

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

If the levers hit the 'nubs' on your calipers, you will need to trim them so that you have hull range of travel of the levers.
