    1964 FB victor disc brake upgrade.

    Hello not been here for a long time, I've started to restore a 64 Vauxhall victor with the aim to drop a Chevy small block engine in but before I get to that point I need to upgrade the brakes but I am finding it hard to find any info on brake conversions for the victor. Any help would be great.

    I have got copies of the mags mentioned will have look to see if they mention about the disc brake setup.

    https://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/his...8b-66554/page2

    They fitted a Granada spindle ( though this could alter the camber ) and a Capri hub with a solid disc.

    The first thing you need to think about is are you going to keep the original front end stud pattern PCD or change it to a different one. You will need to change the back axle if you are fitting a SBC.

    Here is another couple. You will need to change your master cylinder preferable using a servo.
