Want to convert my '64 Plymouth Fury front brakes from drum to disc. Not sure if I want manual or power brakes, Year One shows both, manual # DK68 and power#DK68P. Is anyone using either of these kits and if so are you satisfied with them.

Manual disc/drum in both of my cars, no problems...just don't expect it to be like the modern car you drive!

I am just heading down the same path on my 67. Time for a complete brake job so I figured what the heck.
I am going to go the manual disc route and going through ScareBird.

What's your engine vacuum at idle? That will determine whether you can use a power brake booster.

Checking Year One and Doctor Diff both have kits for $600. Dr Diff doesn't come with a master cyl or prop valve but has the desirable 11.75 rotors.
The 10.97 rotors fit a 14" wheel and 11.75s need a 15".
