did 1972 camaro ss come with manual disk brakes?
No, power brakes were included in the SS option.
just another question on a long list of why for the previous owner of things done to a nice car
did find a booster and master in trunk ,master on car is correct for manual brakes
^^ Why anyone go from nice power assisted brakes to manual is beyond me...Only logical reason was MC or booster went bad....replaced with parts he had on hand.
you only know part of the things done
maybe because he had a tunnel ram set up
many questions I have including an all shag carpet interior
Maybe PO did that modification due to vaccum limitations?
Perhaps it's for the lack of consistent & available vacuum that some big cam engines are guilty of,that and space & cleanliness in the engine compartment could also be a reason.
In addition to above, some may prefer the "feel" of the extra motion ratio and modulation/feedback a manual setup gives during competitive events, not so "on-off" with lock up risks, not to mention not having any "reserve" when you need it most.
I converted to manual from power because of all the reasons above, and would not go back to power assisted with current set up. Also traded in my rotors for ones with no holes in them.LOL
that is the only reason I thought of
is there a difference in brake pedals ? I have seen power brake pedal being larger than manual pedal
Thats an auto/manual stickshift thing.
I run manual disc in mine.Stops fine.
Its all in the pads.
