Handbrake Conversion Kits
Driving off-road you’ll know how easy it is for the standard Land Rover hand brake to get bunged up with dirt and once the mechanism gets clogged up it doesn’t work
as efficiently as it should. Britpart now offer a solution to that problem - a drum to disc conversion kit. These kits use powerful calipers whose mechanism is sealed to
prevent the access of mud. Parts are supplied coated with a tough corrosion resistant coating of gold zinc passivate to ensure a long life. Fitting is easy requiring only
simple tools. Full fitting instructions are included as well as advice on adjustment and use.

The disc transmission brake uses a state of the
art monster sized mechanical caliper designed for
agricultural vehicles and earth moving equipment -
so using it on a Land Rover is easy work for it. The
mechanism is sealed so it will not seize up due to
ingress of mud or water and it uses special ‘sintered’
pads which are resistant to abrasion from mud as well
as providing greater friction against the disc than a
standard pad. The disc has been specially designed for
Land Rovers and manufactured from tough 10mm thick
steel. It has a smaller diameter than a standard drum
and so does not dangle below the transfer box which
helps it to protect it from whatever you are driving over.
The caliper mechanism sits in a well protected area at
the top, away from most of the mud and water.

For anything post 1993 (300Tdi, Td5 & Puma) you need
to change the cable - NRC5088. Puma onwards -
modifications may be needed to the chassis to enable

This will fit any Land Rover fitted with a standard
Series transfer box, including those fitted with PTO’s,
under or overdrive units. The new brake replaces the
original transmission brake drum. It is supplied with
a new adjustable actuator rod which connects from
your original handbrake lever, direct to the caliper,
reducing the amount of slack in the linkages. The disc
transmission brake uses an industrial open-frame caliper
with simple adjustment and easy cleaning. The new
caliper is mounted on a laser cut steel back-plate with
a folded gusset for added strength and incorporating
a built in skid plate to protect the disc which is
manufactured from robust 10mm thick mild steel plate
and which bolts directly to your original gearbox output
flange with six new bolts (supplied). The system is very
light weight, offering a saving of almost 10kg compared
to an original drum brake.

This is a direct replacement for the
original plastic tank which is prone
to splitting. TIG welded by hand and
manufactured from high specification
lightweight non-corrosive alloy, this tank
also aids cooling. Tank uses original
pressure release screw cap and is a
straight fit with no modifications required.
Ideal for motorsport, overland or just to
improve the look of your engine bay.
