      uppers are rebuilt. Chassis has been fully rewired. Anyone happen to have a set of LCAs they want to sell? Are they different between Years or will all B body LCAs work?

        Disc brake conversion nearly complete, waiting on pads to come in.

        Question, do the disc brake Master Cylinders bolt right on in place of the single master cylinder?

        Yes the disc brake master cylinder will bolt up directly. You will need a proportioning valve to adjust front and rear pressure. Also, when looking for the master cylinder look for one from a mid seventy's Duster or Dart with disc/drum configuration. 15/16 inch bore size works the best for your application. I'm sure others will chime in as well.

          That’s freaking awesome! I happen to have a brand new disc/drum MC off my 74 dart that I can now repurpose. Thanks a ton

            Still some fitting and adjustments to be made but ran out of time today. I need to get more practice with that bead roller too.

              A couple updates, ended up modifying an alternator bracket off a LA 318 to work. Started to get her fully bolted up and ready to drive, massive coolant leak and the push button trans won’t shift into any gear, thinking it’s a linkage adjustment issue as I push the buttons and there’s no pressure on them at all. I did just install new cables but did it solo and with a piece of duct tape holding neutral down. Must not have been in right
