mustang 2 calibers walk-thru?

Hello all.

I am replacing the front calipers (and switching to rotors to a Chevy bolt pattern) on my car that has been changed to a mustang 2. I could really use a walk-thru of setting up the new calibers. I have never would with a 2 piece caliber before. I have always owned Chevys in the past.

Anyone got a link to a walk-thru or Adivce?

Okay, first I need some more information, you said you are replacing the rotors with chevy bolt pattern, but are they mustII style rotors? then you said you are replacing the calipers, are they must II as well,or some other ford caliper? Are you using the factory Ford must II caliper brackets?

Do you mean a two piece caliper? or a two piston caliper?

The new rotors are mustII style but with a chevy 5 lug (Speedway)

I am using the original bracket mustII brackets with some remaned calipers.

New pads.

Very simple. Refer to the below thumbnail.

Remove the set screw (retainer) and drive the key out with a punch. The caliper will fall out.

Slide the top of the caliper housing into the upper support bracket, take the spring and lay it over the key and drive the key and spring (together) into lower mount braket with punch. Install retaining screw.
