Thinking of purchasing a front disk brake conversion kit. Can i use the master cylinder and proportioning valve from the original drum set-up????
absolutely. we nabbed everything i needed off a 70 pontiac. rotors, calipers, spindles, and all. got out of there for only $250. spent another $25 for hoses and $15 for pads. but back to the what you were saying....i used my master cylinder that i had already had on the car which was for non power drums and i'm still using it now, but they are manual discs if that has anything to do with it.yes you can! You use a the factory Master cylinder for a 1698-1970 no-power front disc brake Nova.
You can use the same proportioning valve for power or manual brakes.
You can use any GM proportioning valve car IE: Camaro, Chevelle, Malibu, Pontiac, Buick that has front disc/rear drum built before ABS. From 1968-to late 1980's
No trucks, no suv's.
Let the junk yard hunt begin!
If you get your rotors and calipers, hardware and hoses separate from parts store or even a salvage yard this is a deal!!!
the answer is no!Can you use a power brake master for manual??
the answer is no!
there is no way for the linkage rod to work.
The MC needs a hole on the back for the plunger rod.
I have seen people cut the rod and expect it to work.
it will not work!
the rod will fall out and the result can be fatal to yourself or others.
I completely understand.thansk Al, Im still learning
