    I installed Duffers disc brake modification to my Belleview winch. John, a few years back, posted pictures of his disc brake modification to the Belleview winch he had mounted on his 3B. It was something I wanted to do so I contacted John and asked if he would update his pictures which had been beat up by photo bucket. He did and I proceeded to do this:


    Thanks John for your help.

    Probably so. If you look on the web, a disc brake upgrade for the D18 can be found without much difficulty.

    I picked up a parking brake handle at the local pick-in-pull. Using that along with the master cylinder I aquired when purchasing the other parts, l am building the the brake MC assembly. The assembly will be mounted between the seats. By using the parking brake handle, I can lock the brake or control at a preset speed how slowly I let out the cable.

    The brake rotor I used can be purchased from either OMB Warehouse Brake Rotor, 7 1/8" X 3/16" Steel or at ARC Racing which had a faster delivery 3150 Brake Rotor, 7 1/8" X 3/16" Steel

    The caliper I used I purchased off of eBay. At the time I wasn't quite sure how I exactly wanted to mount the caliper with respect to it's foundation. Therefore, I purchased the left/right pair as apposed to buying an individual caliper. The cost difference was negligible.

    I found a premade 86" long brake hose on ebay also so I purchased it. It may or may not work out as the length is close to what I need. 86" STAINLESS BRAIDED HYDRAULIC BRAKE HOSE LINE SCOOTER ATV DIRT BIKE GO KART | eBay

    I also purchased this inexpensive master cylinder. I figured it would work well for setting up and testing the brake system. I can easily upgrade to a better MC as needed.

    I finally found the time to finish the brake upgrade. I changed my plan as to where I originally had planned to locate the master cylinder. I decided to locate it along side the left front inner fender. I built a small foundation for the M/C and bolted it to the frame. To actuate the brake, I used my brake pull cable which I mounted to the left lower corner of the dashboard.

    You can thank Duffer for thinking up the modification.
