Ford Racing rear disk brake kit question.

Would anyone know if this kit will work with axles that do not have a large hole drilled in the flange? This seems like a nice kit for the price. Here is the part number. Ford Racing #397-M-2300-G.

If it is the SVO kit it is the same as the explorer rear brakes. It will work with the late big ford end and you can put them on without the hole but you have to work at it. You also will need a .125" spacer between the bearing and the retainer or the axles will move in and out 1/8".

I hope this answered your question, Mike

Thanks for the quick reply. That answers my question. I never heard of this .125 spacer. Is this something that I will have to make?

I make mine but I have a lathe and bridgeport, or you can buy them from Strange. If I am buying axles and using that brake setup I will buy the spacers from them to save a little time.

I like that setup if it is a streetcar because of the parking brake and all of it is in a small package. Look at the Willwood brake with built in parking brake it is a copy of the ford rear brake just better looking.

I went to Summit Racing today. I bought the Ford brake kit. It came with the .125 spacers. A very nice kit.

The brake kit didn't fit though. My 5/8" wheel studs ended up hitting the peice that pushes the shoes apart.

I really want to keep an e-brake. This is a tubbed '84 Camaro that I plan on street driving. It has a Moser M9 housing with late model Torino housing ends.

I seen this kit on Jeg's website. It looks like Caddy calipers with built in e-brake. Will it work? click here

I do not like the cad/camaro calipers if the parking brake is not adjusted corectly the regular brakes don't work.
