I am looking for a dual master cylinder and brake booster set up for a 46 2 ton will this work? I have all original brakes and drums installed. Thanks, Tom

Hello Randy, I just bought a 53 4100, I had read it shares an axle with the 1 ton, will your disc brake Conversion work on the 1.5 ton axle? If so I would like to look at getting a system for my upgrade

... and if not you can swap in a 2 ton axle and then use Randy’s kit. 2 ton axle fits as perfect in your truck as the 1.5 ton axle did.

Thanks Grigg..I read every post on your conversion thread, that’s what lead me to this post.. my 4100 is the short wheelbase 137”. I may look for a 2 ton longer frame and front axle to swap the body on. I want to build a drive on car hauler with it.. currently it’s setup as an old wrecker

Michael, My system will work great on the 1.5 ton axle. The only difference that I have found in the 1 1/2 ton vs the 2 ton is that the bolts holding the backing plate are a 9/16" vs 1/2". Same bolt pattern. I have started making the caliper brackets that bolt up to the spindle with 1/2" holes and if they are going on a 2 ton axle, I just drill them out on the mill.

Also, I have a 180" wheel base chassis. Funny enough is that it came from Texas about 3 years ago. I am thinking about using it for my COE build, but could be persuaded to clean it up, paint it, install the new brake system and provide it to you for your project....

I'm needing a disk brake conversion kit for a 1941 Chevy COE ..I believe it's the kit that you make a 1.5 ton that uses Ford calipers.. I need a brake upgrade.. and do you make a kit for front and rear or just front?
