I have a kit coming to convert to disc brakes which include the 8 lug hats 11" rotors & rest of parts !! will have to get the duel master & proportioning valve elsewhere though when i find the part numbers needed !!
I already have the brackets from Scarebird & calipers & pads so that $$$$$ all will come of the price of the kit !!!
Glad to keep the 8 lugs intact !! To pretty to give up !!
Mike
PS anyone else want to convert 8 lugs I have his # & all the part #'s

I'm interested in your experience of the install Mike. Remember I've got that 63 GP I'm going through. I may follow your path at some point. I've got the original 8 luggers as well.

Here is info :

Larry Groshopf

1 815 735 4002

1gto67@yahoo.com

He will order brackets from Scarebirde for your '63 & they will be shipped direct to you & he will fix up the rotors & 8 lug Hats ! I bought the calipers # 2223XA F/R 2223XB F/L, $28.79 & $22. core charge Each ! pads PF-728AM $38.69 at Napa auto. & saved $$$ on him shipping to me @ 25 pounds, that cost $96.27 will be taken of the price of the kit! he does the rest for you !! they do make a kit for 14 inch wheels but don't know if the 8 lug will work with it you may have to order 15 inch wheels ! I have 16 inch chrome ones ! Larry will know !
The Napa part#,s are new replacement for old ones on Scarebird part's list !!
