Re: photos2: rear brake

Did you weld those brake adapters to the axle housing or just use the 2 bolts?
How did you cut the stock drumbs (lathe?)
Looks nice, those hp vectra computers will last for ever.

Re: photos2: rear brake

Your photos are great, and the quality of your work is wonderful.
I looked at your web page. Your Sierra is a great looking rig.
I see that you have a lot of pride in everything that you do to it.

If you have a flat bed scanner, It would be a wonderful thing for you to scan the different pieces of your caliper mounts.
With those scans, if you were to give us the dimension center to center of holes, We could use the scans for pattrens.

What kind of calipers are you using?
Are you going to use the stock master cylinder?

Re: photos2: rear brake

i had to draw all things because i've used a numeric plasma cutter. i can convert everything in inch (cause inFrance we use meters!!), and give all my drawing but i need the drawing of a 1600 kit...

i've used front disk and caliper. the master cylinder is stock now, i'm going to test if it's ok with the more lookheed needed...

Re: photos2: rear brake

i've weld them to the axle housing.
i've cut the drums with a plasma hand tool, and then have them on a machine (i don't know the english word for that...)

Re: photos2: rear brake

I don't know where to get the drawing of the 1600 adapter kit but, I have found an adapter kit for the VW Diesel kit.
If you think that you would be interested in that, I will send it to you when I get it.
I prefer the metric Dimensions.
Your English is very good.
I know that you speak French and English.

Re: photos2: rear brake

I'm looking but just can't see what has happened to the drums here. Can someone explain? All the other pics I understand and it looks like a terrific conversion, I just don't understand the need for or the function of the cut down drums.

Re: photos2: rear brake

That (cut down drum) mounts to the axle.
Then you mount the disc to the cut down drum.

Re: photos2: rear brake

Look very close at the pics at the top of this thread.
You will see where the cut down brake drum bolts to the rear axle--- then the brake disk bolts to the cut down drum.
