Does anyone know of a brake upgrade kit for a 1967 jeep jeepster from stock 10 to 11 or disc brakes?

A brake system brakes.

pad brakes are disc brakes, it's known as changing brake pads for disc setup and changing brake shoes with drum brake setup.

The plural of "brake" is "brakes."

You will wear out the brakes prematurely and you may also overheat the brakes and experience brake fade (no or poor brakes).

User Avatar

Hi I am assuming "change the brakes" refers to the Brake Pads, front and rear ? If this is correct the job in hand is straight forward. However, if you are completely replacing the brakes eg: Upgrade, then that's a whole new venture.

brake shoes are used with drum brakes and are " spread out " when the brake pedal is applied ( brake shoes are used for the rear brakes on 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorers ) brake pads are used with disc brakes and squeeze on both sides of the brake rotor when the brake pedal is applied ( 1995 and newer Ford Explorers have disc brakes front and rear )

No. Usually the parking brake is a separate mechanism from the driving brakes, and its usually only found on the rear wheels.

if you are talking about brake as in like fourwheeler brakes or car brakes the rubber part would be called the brake pad

The service brake is the one which applies the brakes - the emergency brake system is the system which releases the spring brakes.

User Avatar

"Harley" gave an answer which showed why people who don't actually understand air brake systems should not be answering questions about them. When you cage an air brake, you are backing off that brake - this will render both the spring brakes and the service brakes inoperable. The service brake will not work 'just fine", because the arm from the brake chamber is backed off, which backs off the slack adjuster, which backs off the pads or shoes (depending on if you're using disc brakes or s-cam drum brakes).

The good news is the brake lights still appear to work even when this warning is displayed. Does anyone know if the brake lights are at risk of not coming on when you hit the brakes?

User Avatar

It means there is brake problem somewhere, maybe the back brakes.

User Avatar

in some cars the parking brake has a different brake bad than the one that you use to brake your car you might need to cvhange the brake bad for the parking brake the parking brakes works through a wire if the wire looses up it will will not work probably you might need to tighted this wire or maybe the wire is cut completelly

User Avatar

On an air brake system, the brake chamber is what actuates the air brakes... it converts air pressure to mechanical force, either turning an S-cam (on foundation brakes), or actuating a caliper (on disc brakes).

User Avatar

You have hydraulic brakes and air brakes. Hydraulic brakes can be drum or disc. Air brakes can be drum, disc, or wedge. On a lot of medium duty trucks and RVs, the parking brake can be a shaft brake, mounted to the back of the transmission.

Yes, bleeding the brakes removes air bubbles that might be left in the system, especially in the brake lines!If not done every time the brake system is worked on the brakes will be unreliable and unsafe!

The stock manual brakes are very effective. Some people upgrade them to a power brake system, which is fairly easy to do, but I am very comfortable with the stock brakes on my 1960 Ford Falcon 4-door. It is my daily driver and I put at least 40 miles on it daily.

Sticking caliber. Flush the brake system and install fresh brake fluid, then bleed the brakes. If that does not help, replace both calibers and brake pads on the axle where the brakes are grabbing.

User Avatar

No. The emergency brake uses the same brakes. It'll be equally ineffective.

User Avatar

Your brake fluid is how the brake system converts mechanical force of your foot on the brake pedal, into hydraulic force that applies your brakes. Without fluid, your hydraulic brakes will not function.

Only the rear brakes are drum brakes. The front brakes are disc brakes. To answer your question, twist the end wing nut by your drum brake. It tightens and adjusts how much you have to press on your rear brake lever.
