Default 14 ff e brake

Has anyone done a disc brake conversion on a 14ff that used the eldorado calipers . Did you set up the e-brake how did you do it and what parts did you use. I'm in Ontario and have to pass a safety test this year and its included and must work. Is there a kit for a brake on a 241 t/c?

I have heard nothing but bad reviews on the Cadillac calipers. Easier to get a late model 14 bolt with disc and internal e brakes

I have them on one of my 14's, and never really cared for them. As Jeepaholic said above, if you have to have them, get a later model rear end.

could you use a line lock or does it have to be mechanical?

It has to be a separate brake system. Ive used the calipers on an 86 p/U without the parking break and they worked perfectly. I even had to get an adjustable proportoning valve to tune down the rear breaks so they wouldnt lock up before the fronts would
