Ok im going to attempt a front D44 drum to disc conversion, but i need a little help ... ive been doing a little bit of research and think i can pull it off. I was given the following site for reference:
which is for a CJ but info is still relevant and that site referred me to:
I checked out my local junkyard and came across chevy k10 4x4 with which appears to be a dana 44 up front ... here are the pics, if anyone can confirm my finds i would appreciate that:
What i want to know is if anyone here has done it before? and if so what advice do you have? Or if anyone has additional resources Id appreciate it very much ... I plan on writing a write-up when the fat-lady-sings ...
The part that im still a little unsure
about is dealing with the master cylinder, currently the J2000
has a vacuum booster for additional vacuum for the brakes, does this mean that the current master cylinder is NOT
a hydraulic system? And if that is the case I assume i would also need a hydraulic master cylinder, would i have to replace the big tank behind it as well?
As you can figure out im a little unclear about this part of the install, so if anyone has addtional resources here please let me know.
Im mechanically inclined and am the type of person who believes anything can be done, and that things arent as hard as they appear. I havent been working on cars/trucks much so any additional advice is also welcome.
