Scarebird disc brake conversion.

Postby thedodgeguy » Thu May 16, 2013 12:43 pm

I am wanting to put disk brakes on my 71 drum brake truck. I have looked at several post about the scarebird brakes, I guess I am dumb but I only see brkts from scarebird!!!!! Where does a guy get the rotors, calipers and etc. Thanks

Scarebird also sell the machined hubs. It's advisable to buy new rotors, rebuilt calipers and new hoses locally. NAPA, A-zone, Advanced, RockAuto; whichever you have bet luck with. At work now; parts list is on my home computer. Maybe someone else can access that info, or I'll try to post again later. Hope this helps.

Go to the tech section and look at the build thread for scarebird...it's on a town wagon but same set up for d100. Scarebird gives you a complete parts list when you buy the brackets. :2cents

Scarebird sent me the parts list. It looks like I will be getting a set of their brkts and putting it together.

My only comment is if you have a 3/4 ton the stock wheels will not work, I tried both the 72+ and the original 16" split rings.
