Converting to rear disc

Recommended Posts

Spiff,

 

If you mount the calipers towards the front, the stock cables will reach. I’m working on a new bracket at the caliper to line the cable up better. You’ll need a clamp on Clevis on the cable to attach to the lever arm.

Thanks! Will try that first!

Probably not. G/Z have e-brake shoes inside the rotor hub area. No way to retain the e-brake and make it work.

 

 

Could a bracket be made to mount a caliper and use the normal disc function? Sure. But why? That mousetrap has already been invented.

I got my Isuzu rear discs to work with the 620 Ebrake handle. Its in my thread.

 

I bought the Isuzu cables for the calipers and cut and joined them to the 620 cable from the ebrake handle after it splits into a Y. I used cable clamps from Home Depot (I/8" IIRC) to join the cables. I had to bend the Isuzu ebrake levers a little bit to clear, but it works fine.

On my 620, I'm using the Wilwood parking brake caliper on adapters that I made. I'm running Isuzu discs and stock 620 parking brake cables with a new end fitting. 

 

Unfortunately, most of the adapters on the market don't work on slammed trucks - and especially not with frame notches. My caliper is forward and down (about 7:30 when looking at the left-hand side.

Yes Lee, it is tight. I’ve had to do the same thing on the last two installs i did. 

 

Btw, i have come up with a solution for connecting the stock cable. I’ll be doing a review of the info soon. I’m in the process of moving into a new house atm.
