IMPORTANT NEWS AS OF 6-18-11 ‼
We have sold our last one of the brake kits until conditions change. The last 4 kits we sold have gotten us into nothing but trouble. The problem is simple - The kit involves multiple machining operations and multiple suppliers (many of which are very unreliable these days).
Add to the fact that, even disassembled, we're talking about nearly 200 lbs of items that need to be shipped. Please let me be clear - the problems we have had are in NO WAY caused by the 4 customers. They are totally blameless in this. The problem is entirely on our end and we're not in business to upset our customers.
This kit still remains the neatest, best conversion anyone has developed - BUT - until we get a stable source of the core parts we need, plus stable brake parts suppliers, we will suspend sales of this kit. Right now the brake parts situation is abysmal. Companys go out of business right and left. The parts themselves are in a constant vortex of changing brands and part numbers. Every time I went to order rotors, calipers and pads the part numbers had changed! (Even when ordered from the same supplier.)
I'm sorry we can't offer this kit right now but we look hopefully to a future where we have stable brake parts manufacturers and a good supply of core parts. If and when this changes we will reflect it here and will also send out the info on our online News Bullitens.
These problems do NOT effect any of our great front disc brake kits.
Rear disc brake kit for 1965-69 cars! You've been waiting for a well designed, easy to install system and this one is ready! Kit is available several ways -
PLEASE SPECIFY whether you need the kit for 1965 or 1966-69 models.
IMPORTANT! Before you order - Please understand that these kits use modified components that are sometimes difficult to locate cores for. The kit also involves multiple machine operations and multiple parts suppliers - Usual turnaround time will be 6-8 weeks BUT could be longer if we run into component shortages. So why put up with these possible delays? Because this is the only production kit on the market that allows you to use 14" wheels, looks like it could be stock and is simple in it's design and execution.
Because of the unique difficulties sometimes encountered with delivery of this great kit we are sorry to announce that we cannot ship these to Canada (or any other foreign country). Why? Because we oftentimes have to ship the kits in multiple boxes from multiple locations. Add the weight of most of these components and you end up up either, with a huge shipping bill, or us not wanting to ship until we have everything at our location to ship in one or two packages. This has gotten us into trouble in the past with 2 Canadian customers. We are not here to upset our customers and damage our reputation, we're here to sell Corvair parts and have happy customers.
If you are one of our loyal Canadian customers and want one of these kits, please try to have them delivered to an address in the lower 48. We're always happy to serve your needs, but in this case, discretion is the better part of valor.
CORES - Depending on which kit you order core charges may be involved. In some cases we may not have the necessary cores and may require you to sent your cores in advance to be machined. Just ask what our current core situation is when you order.
"A" KIT - Vented rotors, calipers, backing plates, adaptors, steel brake lines, re-machined arms, e brake bracket - for both sides. You supply the rear wheel bearing assembly (o.d. of spindle hub needs to be turned - a simple operation on a brake lathe).. There will be a core charge for your arm.
U-6099 Cost - $799.00 plus core + (core is for arms - $125.00)
"B" KIT - Same as A kit but includes new torque arm bushings (not installed), 1 pair of flexible brake lines, 8 stabilizer rod bushings, 2 rear wheel bearing rebuild kits, 8 longer rear wheel studs.
U-6100 Cost - $1117.00 plus core + (Core for arms is $125.00)
"C" KIT - Same as B kit but includes a completely rebuilt and modified rear wheel bearing assy (both sides, of course) and also includes new trailing arm bushings (installed). All components are complete and ready for simple assembly.
IMPORTANT! - There has been some misunderstanding as to whether or not we can ship these arms and bearings as a completed assembly. This is not practical because of their size and weight.
U-6101 Cost - $1257.00 plus cores (cores on arms$125.00 and rear bearing assemblies $110.00 )
"D" KIT - Just the backing plates, e brake adaptors, special adaptor brake lines and remachined arms. No rotors or calipers included. It's like an "A" kit above, otherwise.
U-6099D $480.00 (Core for arms $125.00)
EMERGENCY BRAKE CABLE ASSY - So far these special cable assemblies have been very expensive to have made in limited quantities. Please note that the E brake cable assy is NOT included in any of the above prices. It is listed as an option only and the current cost is $140.00. It's a beautifully made assembly but we will continue to work to get the cost down on it!
