    hi, I have a 1967 Morris Minor convertable and would like to change the brakes at the front of the car from drum brakes to disc and pad brakes. a) how difficult a job will it be. 2) what would the parts cost baring in mind they will probably have to come from a ford sierra car. Does anyone have any knowledge of this-thanks

      Sorry Brian, I'm not familiar with Morris brakes. I know that even with an old Chevy, where parts are readily available and the setup can easily be retrofitted from newer models, it is quite a job.

    It shouldn't be too difficult with the proper tools, basic instructions and some degree of mechanical ability.  Be leery of rusty nuts and bolts. Spray with penetrating oil a day before undertaking the replacement. A basic drum brake tool set can be had at Harbor Freight for under $10.
