The easiest way by far is to use the uprights of the 1600 Beetle which already has the disc brakes up front. Or do you want them at the back too?
<DIV><FONT size=2>Where can I find info and parts to do this type of
www.aircooled.net sells MANY different disc brake kits. The quality
is excellent. You will be able to find one for a torsian bar beetle
or a super beetle. I put one of their front disc kits on my 73 std,
and the only complaint I have is that I can't afford one for the rear
wheels! Super beetle wiill be easier to do, becuase you don't have to
remove the spindle. If you're doing a standard beetle, you will have
to replace the spindles with the ones provided in the kit, and this is
the only really dificult part...and it's not even that dificult. Do
it with a friend, and you should finish in 5 hours at the MOST.
Well...it took me and my friend about 7 hours, because we didn't have
some of the proper tools...like a fork to seperate the spindle from
the balljoint arms...and we screwed up bleeding the brakes, and had to
do it many times. good luck!
