Seems to be a lot of questions regarding how to and what you need to install the Scarebird disc setup, I know I had a few before I started. So I figured I'd do a write up on it. There are a few other write ups on it, however not quite as much detail. Hope this helps someone down the road!
- Scarebird Disc Brake Adapter
- Inner Bearing (68 Mustang)
- Inner oil seal (68 Mustang)
- Outer Bearing (66 Galaxie)
- Hardware kit (66 Galaxie)
- Dust cap (68 Mustang) ** Don't use the one I used... junk...
- Brake Caliper (97 S10)
- Brake Pads (97 S10)
- Brake Hardware (97 S10)
- Two grade 8 bolts and nuts
- Rubber hose (Can't remember what it goes to, I'll update this)
- Dual Master Cylinder (69 Galaxie)
- Proportioning Valve (Wilwood Universal)
Some of this stuff you can get away with reusing what is on your car, however I figured since I was in there I would replace it all.
Here are a few pictures of the brackets
I decided to go ahead and paint them for rust protection.
So getting started. This is what it started out as.
Remove the wheel
Remove the dust seal
Remove the castle nut and coupler pin
Remove the retaining nut
Remove the retaining washer
Remove the outer bearing
Now the drum will slide off, may take some convincing.
There are three bolts that hold the drum plate to the spindle.
Then the drum plate with everything attached to it will slide off (with some convincing)
Lastly, disconnect the rubber hose, I use a hammer to pull the retaining plate out.
So, this is everything that I had to remove from the existing set up.
Your spindle should look like this.
This is everything that is going on it (for one side)
Install the bracket, I purchased two new bolts for the bottom, the kit comes with the top bolt.
Install the spacer plate (provided by scarebird kit) beveled side inward.
Pack the inner bearing and place it in the backside of the rotor
Then install the inner seal
Grease the spindle and install the rotor
Pack and grease the outer bearing, then install
Install the retaining washer, retaining bolt, castle bolt, and coupler pin. (in that order.
This should be what it looks like.
Install the dust shield, I would not reccomend the Mr. Gasket set that I got, you can see I had to mash the **** out of them to get it in, the just don't fit well.
