This kit installs onto existing V8 drum brake type spindles. Yes these do go bad! All it does is make hydraulic pressure. Power brake versions include a correct power spec master cylinder, a booster, mounting brackets and hardware, and an adjustable push rod.

A mixture of water,brass,iron and brake fluid makes a black tar like substance when the fluid is not changed or flushed with new fluid. This kit installs onto existing V8 drum brake type spindles. I have heard that K-H did not consider the valve to be a rebuildable unit since it was constructed with high tolerances by professionals. Like true racing disc-brake systems, the Kelsey Hayes setup featured separate hubs and rotors, and fixed four-piston calipers. Swap out steel brake lines as required.
However, Goodmark never actually made this part but instead bought them from a supplier who has since discontinued production.

It didn't stop too bad. The A-Body cars were the last to change to single-piston calipers, retaining the fixed four-piston design until the 1973 model year. For diehard do-it-yourselfers, purchase the hard-to-find rebuilding parts from Master Power and assemble the calipers at home. Also, front brakes do most of the stopping and thus require more pressure. Because front disc brakes are not self-energizing like drum brakes, they require more pressure to work properly. To ensure that the rotor turns true, the old bearings and races in the hubs were replaced as part of the rebuild. The kit can only be applied to 64-66 automatic transmission equipped cars.
We will contact any Texas orders for the additional tax. This possibility is completely wrong as the A-Body spindle is too short for this B-Body rotor. Rebuilding a four-piston disc-brake equipped A-Body today is a lot more involved than reconditioning the later single-piston systems. This will cause the rear brakes to lock up long before the front brakes are engaged enough to stop the car. It uses a one-piece inner piston assembly. The housings are also different due to the different inside diameters and therefore require different seal kits.
The rest of the system doesn't know or care where that pressure came from. Go to any Auto Parts Store, purchase ther desired part, go home put it on!!! Not responsible for errors or omissions. Note that you will need to adapt or refab your hard brake lines to accommodate the proportioning valve, the master cylinder, and the brake hoses.

He can be contacted at:. Might be better to change to 73+ disks or after-market kit and sell the complete K-H setup. Some year model versions include a correct power brake pedal matchd to the car's transmission type. The single-piston systems were far less complex, more effective, reliable, and cheaper to produce. In some instances, a light touch with a brake wheel cylinder hone will help clean them up.
