Disc Brake Bracket Kit, 1955-68 Chevy Car, Sm GM Caliper

INSTRUCTIONS
1955-68 CHEVY FULL SIZE CAR
DISC BRAKE CONVERSION KIT (SM. CALIPER)
(DB-5568)
STEPS: READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY BEFORE INSTALLING
THIS KIT. BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION, MAKE SURE YOUR
WHEELS FIT.
Make sure this kit fits your application before painting or plating.
Parts that have been painted or modified may not be returned.
1. Jack front of vehicle and support it properly with jack stands.
2. Remove the wheels, brake drums, hub assembly and backing plate assembly!
3. Clean and prep the spindle. See fig. #1.
4. Mount the caliper bracket onto the spindle using the supplied bolts and spacers in
the kit. (Note the brackets should face the rear of the vehicle and the spacers go
between the spindle & steering arm as shown in fig. #2 and #3. (58-64 vehicles
require the use of additional supplied spacer between caliper bracket and spindle).
5. Pack the wheel bearings with good quality disc
brake bearing grease and install the seals.
6. Install the rotor, outer bearing, retaining washer,
and spindle nut. Torque the spindle nut to
12ft/lbs while spinning the rotor, then back the
nut off to nearest slot and install cotter pin.
7. Install the grease caps, calipers and brake
hoses. Make sure the bleeder screws are on top
of the caliper.
7A. Due to the variations in brake pads, you may
need to modify the wear sensor to clear the
caliper mounting bracket.
7B. Due to steering arms being spaced inward toe in will have
to be set. We recommend 1/8” toed in. Also turn stops will
need to be modified to regain full trun radius.
8. You are done at the wheels. Enjoy!
Warning!!!
Stock drum brake wheels may not work with
disc brake conversions. Drum brake wheels
were not made with disc brakes in mind, so
there may be wheel to caliper clearance
problems. Before installing this kit, make sure
your wheels fit the brake assembly.
For those of you wanting to keep stock wheels
that interfere with the installation, there are
companies such as the ones listed below that
can remove the original wheel centers and reinstall
them into a new disc brake rim. Please
contact them directly for more information.
