Brake Caliper Rebuild

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

Tech article by Jason Rodgers (Gummi Bear) We’ve all had brake problems at one point or another, sometimes even the caliper is needing to be replaced. I’m going to show you how to rebuild one, to save the cost of a rebuilt unit. This is inexpensive, and pretty easy to do. Once you do one, […]

Brake Fluid Catch Can

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Tech article by Jason Rodgers (Gummi Bear) No fancy tools necessary, no expensive stuff either…Pick up your favorite drink in a plastic bottle, a length (about 3′) of 3/16″ vinyl tubing, a 1/4″ drill bit, the tiniest drill bit you have (I had a 1/16″), and some super glue {see Picture 1}.

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Tech article by Tim Bowsher (Broncobowsher) One of the hardest parts of installing the Chevy brake conversion is routing the brake lines. Trying to get the hose to route in a way that doesn’t bind or get caught up in moving parts can be a real pain. After a visit to Randy at Driven Auto […]

Hydroboost Brakes

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Tech article by TOFIC Wandering the wild country one day, I stopped in a small town to acquire some fuel and liquid refreshment, and discovered the scrap metal dump just outside town.

Rear Disc Brakes – Cadillac/GM calipers

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Tech article by Lars Pedersen (Lars) The addition of rear disc brakes is a popular upgrade for early Broncos. Lots of creative people have accomplished this mod using components from Lincolns, Cadillacs, Ford Explorers and others. These days it’s easier than ever due to the availability of commercial kits that include everything needed for the […]

Front Disc Brake Conversion using all Ford parts

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Tech article by Ryan Flud I searched high and low for a disc brake conversion kit for my ’73 Bronco. It seems virtually everybody sells the Chevy/Ford conversion, not to mention they charge about $800 +tax and shipping. I don’t mind using parts from other vehicles to make an upgrade or modification but I do […]
