    scarebird disk brake conversion on 1964 880

    No on the Ram hoses. They are kind of weird compared to car hoses. Scarebird will provide part numbers for 3 different length hoses that depend on your specific application (you will have to measure the length you need for you car).

    scarebird disk brake conversion on 1964 880

    Brakes don't wanna brake!

    I would block the lines to the master cylinder and bleed it first to make sure you can get a firm pedal. Suddenly having a spongy pedal and no signs of leaks is usually a bad master cylinder.

    Tires: How old is too old?

    That one sat outside for 10 years just fine. It wasn't until I put the car up on stands and crawled under it that that tire suddenly blew out a few inches from my head.

    I could use your help?

    How solid is the pedal and how low does it go while engine stopped vs. engine running? Is this a new disc brake conversion? Could be an undersized master cylinder
