Electric brake kits

Need to change old hydraulic brakes for electric. Can I get a kit for old axles or do I need to get new axles?

You amy need to replace the axles that are that old. The following article will help you check them out.

The Dura-Torque Axle

Replacing disc brakes with electric brakes, is really taking a step or two backwards.

Some parts are still available for the original Excellavac disc brakes.

But, should you still decide to replace the disc brakes with electric brakes, you should consider the self adjusting electric brakes.

They cost a little more, but the issue of having them adjusted every few thousands of miles, will be long gone.
