    Getting a little more back ON topic. Can anyone give me a report on how they liked the Helitool brake conversion? I'm thinking of going for the fronts at least. I already have a nice set of one piece wheels and tires for the stock bolt pattern, so I don't want to hear anyone telling me how it's cheaper to go standard 8 bolt pattern! LOL!

    Also, if I can find out exactly what MC/pedal configuration worked best, that would be great. I am interested in having power brakes, too. I don't want to go hydroboost, I'd like to stay vac. assist. Would FSJ booster and MC work, since they are disc/drum system? TIA!

    I'm using a pedal from an FSJ (auto, it bolts up pretty easy) and a 68 corvette MC (started with stock brakes/axles and it was good) and going to Disc/Disc. For your situation, I would look at one of the late model FSJ boosters as a possibility as well.

    My Helitool brake kit was an easy install, I will be going non power dual master from a one ton chevy. Robert Cowan explained to me what I needed to do. It sounded pretty straight forward, using the stock pedal. I'll give him a call if I get stuck when I get to that point. Don't know how it works and won't for awhile. Lots of work left before it will be driveable.
