DBK6824 - 68 F-Body Power Disc Brake Conversion Kit (Camaro / Firebird) - $1139.00
This kit is for cars converting to disc brakes that are concerned with stock appearing
components. This is the most stock appearing kit on the market. It features the
correct 11" Delco booster with the correct bleeder master cylinder, hold
off valve at master and the
correct distribution block. Once the kit is installed, even the
purest will not be able to tell it from factory. The master cylinder lines route the
same as the originals, and the correct valve allows you to use the
rest of your factory existing lines. This kit also features the correct dual
piston calipers. All 68 disc brake cars had these calipers and they are a must
for a correct restoration. This kit has everything you will need for your
is truly the most complete kit on the market.
Some companies say they have a complete kit but where are the, flex hoses, hard brake lines, vacuum hose, and prop valve? All other kits on the market have you making up your own lines and fabricating pieces just to get the kit to work. NOT ANYMORE. While the other guys leave you hanging with generic parts, we included it all, right down to the plumbing. Here at Inline Tube, we work on our own cars and want the same thing you do - a complete kit with all the pieces that installs in a few hours.

These are all brand new parts!
More Details - Our factory style disc brake conversions are based off all factory components. Disc brakes was an option in 1968 and if you ordered them this is what they would look like. The master cylinder is the 1967-69 disc brake bleeder master cylinder. The master has the hold off valve off the stud of the booster. The booster is the 1967-69 F-Body booster that would have been on the car if you ordered power drum brakes. The prop valve mounts in the same location as the factory on the bracket below the master and is separated into front and rear. By having these valves in the right location, it allows you to reuse your existing right & left front and front to rear brake lines. The lower wheel kit is 1968 only F-Body using the dual piston caliper. The single piston caliper, was new for 1969 and replaced the 67-68 dual piston caliper. All the components are stock, so 20 years from now if you have to replace the brake pads, they will be available.
Some companies use the brass 5 port valve, but this valve is mounted up at the master cylinder on a different bracket. No F-Body ever used this valve until 71. You also have to make all new lines that do not look factory because of the placement and the amount of ports in the valve. Other companies supply only the adjustable valve which does look factory and now you have to cut up your lines and try to make something work. Most other companies supply smooth boosters and generic master cylinders so the kit price can be reduced. Our kit also uses the correct dual piston caliper, not a late model metric caliper, so when you mount the brake hose it screws right in with no adapter. We also provide the right length brake hose, so your hose will hook up with no washers, adapters or generic parts. Not all disc brakes are the same! With the prices of stock muscle cars at an all time high, the more stock and correct the car is, the higher the return on your investment.
1967 was the first year for disc brakes and the dual master. All cars in 1967 had a dual master with a distribution block. 1967-69 factory disc brake cars had a distribution block, but it worked in conjunction with a barrel-shaped hold valve that hung off the stud of the master cylinder making this a two part valve on disc brake cars and a single block on drum brake cars. 1967 was also the first year for disc brakes so they used dual piston calipers. 1968 was the last year of the dual piston caliper. 1969-74 all used the improved design single piston caliper.
