Help with brakes, and finding parts.

Recommended Posts

I am looking to find a way to convert from drum brakes to disc brakes and I have no Idea where to get parts for it, so here are some questions I have. 

1: is there any disc brakes from a car I can take and bolt up to the car?

 

2: Is there any conversion kits from drum to disc? 

 

3: Where can I buy parts for the stock brakes? I need a brake master cylinder, brake shoes, and brake cylinders.

The '82-'83 S110 200sx is a 4 lug  H-190 axle with disc brakes. It'll fit under a B210 and 210. Just saying it might be worth looking into. I don't know the width.

Mklotz or bluehands fabrication made kits for these. He may be persuaded to do another run? 

 

He uses Infiniti G20 rotors and calipers. 

 

Some stock parts will be difficult to locate, but you can use 510 brake pads and 521 wheel cylinders. The parts on the 411 are SAE and the 521 is also SAE.

You can find master cylinder rebuild kits on ebay,  also the SSS model came with front disc, maybe you can find a set of those. they are rare but parts hunting is half of the fun.

Looks like you need to make a few more posts for it to kick in.

DATSUNParts sells a master cylinder from Japan for the original 310 roadster that has a caution note.  It will not fit 1500 cc Roadsters because the outlet is on the wrong side.  It's on the wrong side for JDM roadsters but fits export roadsters and RL411s perfectly.  The part sold is a genuine Nissan part but not listed in USA data books.  It installed perfectly in my RL411.  The only difference is that the fluid receptacle is smaller that factory RL411s.  It is adequate for all except heavy race applications.  If you need authentic factory look, just swap the receptacle from your old unit if you still have it.  One screw clamp and the swap is made.

 

This reply is for the RL411 front disc brakes.

 

If you have front drum brakes the best conversion would be to find the front cross member and front brake assembly from a scrapped RL411.

Yes, I had to have mine rebuilt and it was not cheap. Works great, though.
