48 Plymouth disk brake conversion

Has anyone used the ECI disk brake conversion and their master cylinder.

what other parts are needed in addition to what is included in their package.

What front wheels are used with the conversion?

Thanks, Larry,

Used parts of it on my 47 Dodge B-coupe. Along with Cavalier R&P. I like to do my own stuff. So I copy a lot..

Checkout Rustyhope.com I used Charlie's kit on my 48 Plymouth Coupe and other than drilling and tapping the mounting holes in the spindles it is a direct bolt on. Uses Volare rotors and S10 Calipers.

Had the install done in one afternoon and could not be happier with the way the car stops. It was my daily driver with this set up for about 3 years in Dallas traffic.

No, running a new master cylinder but it is the stock style.

With the Clutch / Brake shaft off the same mount it is some work to go to a dual chamber master. There is a mounting kit out there from I believe ECI, but some of the folks I have talked to who have installed it said it was far from a bolt in. They had to do rework and modifications to get it to work.
