90% done with a disc conversion and ready to push my 69 into a lake.

As the title states, I purchased a disc brake kit from CPP. It included the usual: Spindles with 2.5 drop, lines with banjo bolts, calipers, rotors and hardware.

In addition to the kit, I did tie rods and sleeves, ball joints, purchased proportioning valve, and a master cylinder from a 72 disc/drum c10 to get the juice to flow correctly.

Ive done all the heavy lifting and am left with only the MC and prop valve. i bought some short lines from the MC to prop valve and had to rip out the front lines because they were all rusted and fragile.

My life is a nightmare now of adapters and leaky brake lines, does anyone have experience with this scenario? CPP's tech and manual section is about as helpful as a hammer to the face.

Hi Skully -

Can you give us some more details on what issue are you having?

I hear you on taking something and adapting what a company says is a direct bolt on. It can be daunting and frustrating. I have went through that more times that I would like to admit.

What I have done in the past is started with the basics. What does work, what looks right, from one piece to the end. If the MC is bolted on, does the lines you purchased fit or are they too long, bent wrong, or? Did you happen to take a bunch of pictures of the setup before teardown?

-Paul

Welcome to the forum. I did the same upgrade to my Burb, had a few issues but got through it and it's all OK now. Let's have more specifics and see some photos. We.ll get you through it.

Maybe they pushed it in the lake.
