Disc Brake conversion on early drum brake SPRIDGETS



A properly set up Spridget disc brake conversion will require the right components.

When doing the disc brake conversion, later backing plates and wheel cylinders should be swapped in as well. Drums are identical, but shoes and springs are different. Bolt pattern plate to axle is identical also.
