- I was looking at the information you put on your web site regarding the
disc brake conversion for the 1965 Riviera. Please add the kit number for the
primary bracket purchased from E.C.I. The number is EC-712. The kit
referred to by Tony Tierno is used for 1959 Chevy passenger cars. However,
the folks at E.C.I. have it classified under two or three different
applications. Depending upon who answers the phone, they might not know
about the 1959 passenger car kit. The kit number is the best way to go.
Also, you need to specify that it is the "PRIMARY BRACKET" portion of the
that you want. You need two. A left side and a right side. They are not
interchangeble. I would also suggest you include the written portion of the
conversion (if possible). This contains the parts you need to purchase.
Also, the master cyclinder has been changed to "1978 to 1980 Chevy C-10 truck
with non-power disc brakes". This master cyclinder is available as a new
part. The 1968 Cadillac master cyclinder is now only available as a rebuilt.
Thanks for including Tony's conversion information on you web site.
