  1. Thanks for the update falconvan. Its nice to get feedback on this. Its been a while since I came up with the idea and process to convert this way and I wondered if people had been using the conversion and how they liked it.
  2. Hi Casper50. My very first post on this thread tells what years fit (however 5 pages in) its worth mentioning again. Its 95-2001 Ford Explorer 4wd Front Calipers and Rotors.
  3. Hi. I have revived the page on my website that has the PDF files on it. The link in the early posts should work again. I also have the files in the post I did on the HAMB website. I would have posted the files directly to this site as well but didnt know of a way to do that. I spent a couple of days recreating the subdomain and page info and also the pdf files so I could share it again. Heres a link to the page if you need it: http://car.icompute.info/disk_bake_bracket.htm I also have uploaded the files to the forum here. p15_d24_disk_brake_bracket.pdf brake bracket.pdf
  4. Looks like Im missing too. I tried to add myself again but I couldnt do it.
  5. You can not put into smilys how happy I am for you. That is fantastic!
  6. Yeah. I read this article before I did the swap. If you use the HEI you can leave the points dizzy in if you want to. They no longer need to produce the charge they had to with the regular coil system so they dont burn out (from what I understand). The points are only acting as a trigger to send the message to fire. The best of both worlds would be to convert the slant 6 dizzy into your car so you dont have parts that can wear out (the points would still wear on the cam in the dizzy) and then put the HEI on instad of using the big MOPAR electronics box. Problem solved and the HEI will give you a huge spark. Make sure to gap the plugs wider if you go to the HEI instead of the MOPAR box.
  7. Yes it does. The outside of the dizzy where it goes into the block has to be turned down slightly to fit in the hole. It was really easy to do. It was harder to find a good diagram of how it should be wired than it was to convert the distributor. I purchased one used and the wiring to the pickup inside was brittle and broke the shielding on the wires as I was puting it in the car so I ended up buying a rebuilt one at the auto parts store for about $15 more than I paid for the used one. It made a difference in the way the car ran and knowing that I wouldnt have to change points again was worth it. I was into the conversion (Not counting the used dizzy that I didnt use) for about $100. It would have been more but I turned down the outside of the Dizzys housing to fit the hole in the block. While I had the guts out of the housing I put a long bolt through and put washers and nuts in the right places so it didnt damage the new bushings and then chucked it up in the drill. I got the file and sand paper out along with a caliper and carefully took off material untill it fit. If I could afford it I would have taken it to a machine shop with the old dizzy for more accuracy. The plugin for the module on the firewall was really expensive too (at the parts store). I opted to put individual connectors on the wires and plug them in although it would look much cleaner if you use a factory type plug. You may get a better deal on eBay for the connector. I went with a single balast resistor system to cut down on the amount of wiring needing to be done. I dont have the car any more so I cant take pictures but I remember how most of it went together if you need help. Have fun..... Dale

    That is awesome! Keep up the good work. Youll be driving it in no time....
  11. The front brakes were done. I had just picked up an Explorer rear end, driveshaft and Explorer master cylinder but did not get them into the car before I sold it. I wanted to take that money and invest it in my wifes business so I sold the car. After we get it going I shouldnt have a problem building another car. I am also keeping the disk brake template so I can convert the brakes on it too. (As long as its a p15)

    Looks good. Dont forget to put a trans cooler on it and if you run rubber hose make sure its a high pressure hose. I made the mistake of using regular fuel line hose on mine and blew the line out right away. Of course this was over 20 years ago in my twenties. I have not done that again. Lesson learned I guess.
  13. I totally understand your frustration. Hope the idea of the other kit works out for your situation.
