Disc Brakes Kit from Scarebird

Recommended Posts

I finally got around to swapping out the old disc brakes on my '49 DeSoto (Same as Dodge) with a kit from Scarebird. All the parts are normal easy to find from local parts stores. The 2 custom parts are the caliper mounting plates and the hubs. Everything went together quite easy. I have a few more things to finish tomorrow the pump it up, bleed it out, check for leaks and road test.

I have  kit on order for my 49 Coronet. They have very good to work with answering my questions prior to ordering.

Yes, I went back and cleaned up the cotter pins and installed new covers. This setup allowed me get rid of the 1/2 inch wheel spacers I had to use with the drums. I was worried that the 14-inch Keystones wouldn't clear, but do, easily. I'm very happy with this upgrade.

Did you use your original master cylinder? If so what is involved in removing the residual valve? Can this be done with the mc on the car or must it be removed? I’m considering this for my Coronet.

Some are just removing the rubber washer from the residual valve and just go with that.  Last month I installed a new Scarebird kit and have new drums and shoes in my newly installed 2000 Cherokee rear axle.

Yes it can be done on the car easily
