    Im also keen to get the ducting. I note that the pics above are missing the plastic part that goes on the end of the air cleaner snorkel. I just disassembled mine and sandblasted the air cleaner and repainted it. See the black plastic part on the end per the diagram above. There are 4 staples...

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    David, Thanks for the info and thanks for checking. I have completed a dummy install and marked the place on the pedal where it intersects the push rod. So all good. As for the adjustment between the master cylinder and booster. It comes from Leed Brakes with the master cylinder connected to...

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Geoff, Thanks for the info. Re the booster, Yes Im aware that it is not the original style 11"one. I would have preferred that, but no one in Australia has got a 11" unit so settled for something that is similar. Re the distance for the pin from the pivot point. Im just tripple checking before...

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Guys,  Does anyone have the correct measurements for a 71-73 Mustang auto trans brake pedal for a car that has power assist brakes? I'm after the measurements for the distance from the centre of the top pivot point to the centre of the pin that connects to the booster push rod. Most...

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Thanks Mike. Unfortunately the kit I got did not have the stud. I have arranged for a local engineering company to add a stud as that will be quicker than ordering one from the US and getting it sent to Australia. I will update once I get the pedal back.

    Geoff, Yep, I have a local engineering company that can do the work for me. Just need to wait a week or so for them to clear other work before mine. It would take them no more than 30 min to do I would expect.

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Thanks Tom. Im doing a mixed install. A booster and master cylinder from Leedbrakes and local (Australian 1986 Falcon) front spindles and Girlock aluminium callipers. Mainly to enable getting new pads much easier than having to get them from the US when they wear out.

    Speedo cable grommet through cowl replacement?

    Guys, I'm looking to replace the old rubber grommet on the speedo cable that goes through the cowl. Other than buying a new cable to replace the existing one that is working perfectly, has anyone come up with an idea on how to replace just the grommet? Any suggestions? See my old one.

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Thanks for the updates guys. Tom. Thanks for the update. Yes if I could get the stud from Leeds that would be ideal. I have messaged them. I'm checking locally to see if anyone has a pedal that will work. Does anyone have a pedal they could measure the total length and spacing between the...

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Guys, Thanks for the update. I will probably go down the route of adding the extra pin to the pedal. I installed the new booster with the pedal installed and marked with a sharpie there the pedal intersects and it is around 2 inches.  I don't have a welder, but have a engineering place near me...

    Progress update on my drum to disk conversion. I have now replaced the upper and lower control arms. Rebuilt some local falcon Aluminium Girlock single piston callipers and installed them with new disks. I am now up to installing the new booster and master cylinder that a local mustang...

    What did you do to your car today?

    From the factory steel with sports caps. To some Australian made, early 1970's ROH Pro Sprint wheels. 235 / 60 / 14 on the front and 245 / 60 / 14 on the back. Next job, to replace the front drum brakes with disk.

    GT-351 Fender decals

    Looking good. How about getting some Australian XB GT 351 decals. These were factory fit on 1974 to 1976 Australian XB GT Falcons. Available on silver and black.

    What did you do to your car today?

    Been busy.. Installed a new idiot light to tacho / idiot light conversion from RCC Innovations. Works perfectly. Then installed a new front spoiler. Very happy with the new look.

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Kevin, Thanks for the update. Its interesting that none of the kits that are sold either from CJ Pony, Scott Drake or MPBrakes have a replacement pedal. Given they don't come with one, I did not think a replacement was needed. Thoughts?

    Thanks Kevin. Does the pedal need to change? The car is an auto and is staying an auto.

    Recommendations needed for a front drum to front disk conversion kit.

    Thanks for the link. Probably a bit of overkill for what I'm after. I am also after a full kit with period correct booster.
