Hey man I am getting very interested in your final setup. I am about to do some mods that will call for the parking brake across the springs to be factored in. Sure would be nice to get it gone completely. Whats the final desision on what parts you are using? I know there was talk of go-cart and or snowmobille calipers, custom disk or maybee go-cart stuff too. What about the aftermarket ones you were looking into? I want to pay you for your research so I can do as few mods as possible. Weld it in and go. ya know.

I also became very interested in TASS's parking brake set-up,, I used the info off his original post,, made a phone call to Tool-o-Matic, they inreaturn hooked me up with Dave at Airheart Performance Products, Tempe Az.
(480)449-3660,,www.airheart-brakes.com,, he helped me figure out what disc caliper to buy,(and what clock pattern for my bracket I will be building), which is the MB-1F,12:00 CCW,,,I ordered it and 3 days later I had it at my door step,, for $40.00, which included shipping, the spacer for a 1/4" disc, and the floating caliper bracket, <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

I think I found a better caliper to use, mine's not strong enough on steep hills. I'm waiting for a price and some more info on some calipers from Hayes and Ausco. Some calipers require a 1/8" disk and some require a 1/4" so I have to wait with getting the disks made until I know for sure what to use.

I had my disk custom made by a shop here in town. I talked to them about making a few more for me but they are really busy right now. A guy that works there said he'd try to make them in his spare time (whenever that is).
I'll let you know as soon as I get everything together.
