I have drum brakes know on a 2 axle boat trailer. Can I change to disc brakes and just change out the hyd. cylinder ?
asked by: Dale R
Assuming that you choose the correct rotor that matches your wheel bearing numbers and wheel bolt pattern, you would need to choose a hydraulic actuator that is appropriate for disc brakes like the Atwood # 88730 you referenced. Due to the fact that the calipers move, you would need to provide a brake like kit that has a flexible connection at the caliper like part # 9579-2 which will work with disc brakes.
