Re: Converting 6" mechanical brakes to hydraulic (not going to 9" but keeping the 6" drums)
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I had a set of those conversions that I sold at Wauseon in 2010. Required making a slight modification to the brake shoes as well. In the 90’s Joey DeLorenzo did a neat conversion of 6 inch to disc. He turned down the 6 inch drum to make it a hub for disc brake rotor. I believe the disc brake was off a Vega or a Fiesta. He wrote an article for the Quarterly at the time.

Here is the picture Tim is referring too. I did some more digging and found some pictures Ron Marson sent me back a few years. They were on one of his cars. If Tim's project goes forward I have posted in the Crosley-Gang Restoration Photos an adapter to put the master Cylinder on a mechanical brake car, that the factory supplied that requires minimum modification. It would be easy to make for a fabricator.
