In the end I took the car to my mechanic and asked him to install the MBM kit. He was not happy with this kit because he said you're better of with a kit including a new spindle and protection plate, instead of this drum-to-disc conversion kit with the plates mounted to the original spindles and no protection plate. Also he thought the quality wasn't that good?
I am curious, what are your experiences with the quality of MBM disc brake conversion kits?
Anyway, I took some pictures to keep you posted.
First after the removal of the MC and Proportioning valve it looked like this:
He told me the 'keyhole' shap of the hole is not original. Is that true?
Can maybe Landark post a picture of his firewall after the removal of the MC ?
After that he installed the new stuff. He had to drill two new holes in the firewall for the new booster mounts.
As you can see he's installing new lines to the front wheels. The plan is to use the old steel line to the back wheels. So I got an extension nipple for the old brake line to extend it to the height of the new Proportioning valve. Hopefully this works, otherwise he installs a new brake line to the back as well.
This booster plus MC fits well, unlike Landark I did not have to cut my fender.
Installing the discs was no problem:
At the moment he's installing the fron new brake lines. The two banjo bolts were missing, so I had to get those as well. Let's hope the bleeding goes well and we don't need to install an ADJUSTABLE proportiong valve.
The one delivered with the kit has no adjuster. What are your experiences with that?|The danger is that the rear wheels lock up before the front wheels do, but should it be possible with a standard non-adjustable proportioning valve?
Keep you posted!
