all i"ve read around the eldorado swap top top 14 bolts claims that when the eldo calipers is the only one that works, it doesn"t work that well, specifically if you acquire the reman"d ones. The other alternative is doing v a driveline brake, prefer something off the tcase, yet this might or not be period approved, depending upon who check it. Plus theyre nice pricey from what i have seen. So here"s my cracked pipe idea, (maybe someone has actually done something favor this before??): a tradition bracket through provisions for a second caliper, which will certainly be manually activated by the driver. Maybe also a braket off the tcase and a motorcycle or mountain bike bowl brake. Line locks seem come work, however not be legal native what i have read. The would have to be a close up door system, for this reason if the engine falls out and also all Hell division loose, i deserve to pull the lever, and also not role to my death. I know this i will not ~ be an emergency brake, however just a parking brake. Walk anyone have any kind of experience through something prefer this??edit: maybe something like among these: http://www.directindustry.com/prod/...-actuated-manually-released-14886-690673.html

If friend didn"t know already... There"s an additional caliper that works an extremely well according to others. In reality I"ve heard no complaints. Kinda pricy yet less the a pain. This caliper is what I"m most likely going usage on my 14bff dbc install.www.tsmmfg.com/3120.htm

This can be far better suited for your use, just need to make sure they"ll job-related with your rotor thickness:http://www.jegs.com/i/Wilwood/950/120-2374/10002/-1?CT=999These to speak they"ll work in between 3/8" and also 1 3/8" special rotors, just much more spendy:http://www.ipsco.org/Custom Services/Parking Brake.htm

The TSM caliper is one Eldorado caliper, it just comes through the brackets that no one can ever find.

DIY4x makes, or at least MADE a dual-mount caliper, I"m considering utilizing it for the Suburban. Also, later-model 14b discs, through slip-on rotors and "drum-in-hat" e-brakes have the right to be adjusted to older axles. They need an adapter to readjust the mounting flange pattern for the caliper mount.

I"ve been trying to number out just how to utilize a late design Dodge or GM rear disk device on a older 14 bolt.

Im to run a 2002 chevy key brake 14 bolt with double piston calipers and also drum style park brake in the rotor hat. All factory parts...Axle is about $400 in ~ the wrecking yards, swap in your guts, and the axle is complete. The only method I check out to swap on the more recent stuff come the enlarge axle is to reduced the brake flange off and weld on brand-new ones. Newer style has a much bigger 4 bolt flange where the brakes bolt on.
