300 disc brake conversion.

Well I just bought myself the Highlifter disc brake conversion kit! I got it off ebay for $274.

It will be soooo sweet to finally have GOOD RELIABLE brakes! Ordered my new Swamp Lites today too!

Now to find DGL!! ( which I WILL! lol )

The're a few new ones out there,you just have to find the 1 still sitting one a shelf somewhere..Contact Eaton,and see if they can locate you one is what I'd do..May be worth the call,or email...Sweet n the disc brakes, I need to do that to my Rubi,and my 300,but other things need to be taken care of right now..

eaton also makes transmissions for medium to heavy duty trucks (not a 3/4 ton and 1 ton). and make hydraulic motor here in OK. its funny that when we or the okc bobcat dealer order a motor thats an eaton, it comes from south dakota, but it was built 100 miles away lol.

Eaton also makes trannies,front,rear differentials,clutches,pressure plate assemblies,Detroit lockers,and a whole bunch of other parts including some under a different brand name that that sells for less,and is a direct competition product to their main line of products,and is made in the same plants their main line of products are...

Well today, I recieved my new Highlifter Disc Brake conversion kit.

It looks killer!!! I should hopefully get a chance to install it later today, and I'll take pics of the install as I go.......

I ran into a small snag..... I can't seem to get the wheel studs out of the hub. They must be removed and replaced with the ones in the kit. I'll post up all the pics I took shortly to the point I'm at... Once I get the studs out, the rest is a piece of cake. Simple stupid install!!!!

Well here are my step be step pics... ( kind of )


Like I said, I now have to get the studs out... I tried heating them with map gas and no good. I don't have a big vise, so I may need to take it to a shop to have them swap out the studs.
