Next up, some new brake lines.

The old ones just don't look too good......

I'll do that another weekend.

Ok, maybe a dumb question....I have a 94 single axle and would like to put on the same disc brake set up, do I need to change the actuator assembly? Or can I use the stock one?

I think Jeff bought a new actuator for the change to disk. It has a round cylinder at the end of it...

Not sure if I am going to take on this project this year or not...need to see how bad the brakes are once we get the boat bad from storage...

Jeff, awesome job! How long did it take you to do one side?

I took my time because it was so nice but probably about 3 hrs for whole job. I did re-build two of the bearing buddies so that took about 30 minutes or so. Not bad but just cleaning off the grease real good.

I think the disc requires higher pressure so the actuator would need to be changed.

That's the way I understand - Disks require higher pressure, but lower volume, so the master cylinders aren't interchangeable. However, I don't think you need to change the whole actuator; the master cylinder should be sufficient.

If the brake lines were bad and you are concerned with rust, I would not hook up the lines yet.
There is a good chance rust and crap will be pumped into the new brakes. Just leave the caps on the caliper nipples.

Use Stainless lines. They are not that much more expensive than steel, dont rust and are less prone to kink while bending.

Yea, I ended up just clipping off the old break lines for now. With a new actuator and new calipers, I don't really want to use the old lines. Here is what I'm thinking right now ($91.75):
