The modifyed brakes

Instead of the usual (and quite expensive solution) with modifying '40's Ford brakes, I worked on a modified version of the original brakes as my graduating project as a mechanical engineer, replacing the activating mechanism with a hydraulic wheel cylinder and other, small modifications.

The project was handed in on the 28th of january 2011, and I was up for the defence of the project, which resulted in a 10 (a B in ects-grades).

My intensions was to start a small fabrication of those conversions, but the restrictions in such a rebuilding of brakes in Denmark demands a lot of testing, which I cannot afford at the moment. Therefore I'm not currently working on them, but hope to begin the project again in the future.

Dannerr at SCCS

I was asked to help promoting http://www.piratekustomz.dk/ at the Scandinavian Custom Car Show (http://streetfire.msolutions.as/Default.aspx?SiteID=2) 12.-14. of November 2010 and again in 4.-6. november 2012, so if you are at the show, stop by their stand and have a chat! 

Brakes on hold...

I've finnaly found a place to buy the '40 Ford brakes at a reasonable price, so I'll be working on getting them for the '31, I'm supposed to build this winter.

Functionwise the B-carb on the G28T should work fine, but you'll be able to get more power out of it, if opted to other carbs. :)

Looks are important- and the look of an original is gone, if mounted with downdraft carb(s).
I have seen dual updraft manifolds, which is a bit of both worlds.

Hi Dannerr,
As we speak im looking into getting a 7.0:1 compfression head for my G28T engine. I opted to use the B carb so it will "look" like the the original
