mine locks, and I know the SVT Focus rears will lock via the handbrake.When you get to the hand brake work I hope you make it a REAL handbrake, that is to say, one that will lock up the rear wheels when yanked hard enough. I hate these "emergency" brakes that will barely hold the car in place in a level parking lot.
The Focuses with rear disc used the same master cylinder as drum, and no proportioning valve. Ford also sells a kit to convert a Focus to rear disc brakes. This kit doesn't come with a master cylinder.mine locks, and I know the SVT Focus rears will lock via the handbrake.
sounds like all good stuff for a rear disc project. Did the rear disc Focuses use a different MC and proportioning valve than their drum equipped cars? I am really excited about the prospect of using SVT Focus rears on the Fiesta. The calipers, rotors, and pads are all easily obtained. I had an extra set of SVT rotors, but gave them away with the car. Should have kept them.
