Disc Brakes for 1949-53 Fords
Wilwood now offers Ford models from 1949 to 1953 the improved stopping power that comes from an engineered disc brake system made specifically for Fords. Classic Series front disc brake conversion kits (forged billet Dynalite calipers) use Wilwood's technology without altering the outward appearance when using Original Equipment (OE) or classic-styled wheels. These fully bolt-on kits (PN 140-12913) require no modifications to your spindles or suspension. They are fully compatible with OE master cylinder output, and can be used as such when a modern tandem outlet master cylinder will not be used.

The 11.28-inch-diameter rotors provide added leverage to enhance caliper performance for overall maximized stopping power. The integrated hubs include tapered roller bearings and modern grease seals.

Each kit also includes the brackets, hardware, alignment shims, and premium grade fasteners to install the brake kits to the spindles. Replacement of the original rubber drum brake hoses is also required. A stainless steel braided flexline kit (PN 220-7699) is included with the kit.

Tri-Y for the Small-Block Ford
Patriot Exhaust Products offers Tri Y design headers (PN H8473), specifically for fitment on small-block Ford V-8 engines, tuck very tight and achieve maximum ground clearance. A good alternative for a street rod application where space is at a premium and longer tubes for more power are a concern over common block huggers.

These headers are built with 5/16-inch-thick machined flanges at the cylinder head and three-bolt outlet flanges. The oval port, under the chassis exit design is made from 16-gauge tubing for durability with 1-5/8-inch primaries, 2-1/4-inch secondaries, and 2-1/2-inch collectors for increased horsepower and torque.

The H8473 comes in natural raw steel or with Patriot's metallic ceramic coating (PN H8482-1) for increased resistance to corrosion and thermal fatigue. The headers come complete with Patriot's header gaskets, header bolts, and reducers.
