    Second on that one! I installed one on my 63 Lark. A friend of mine runs a shop in the area and came over to check it out. He was very impressed with it as well. Great Kit!

          I am glad I saw this thread. I was going to ask if Turner was still in business. Never replies to emails or answers phone. I have been waiting for their "Coming soon: Disc Brake Kit for 3/4 trucks!" for probably over a year now.

            Jim is around, just a very busy guy. It is definitely worth the effort to do business with him, as said above great product and great guy. Bill

              I'll add my praises too. He & I have had a few discussions being that he used to live in SoCal, he too is in the management position of the body shop industry & we both love Studebakers! I've used 2 of his kits now & they are hard to beat.

                Put one of his kits on my half ton Champ 2 winters ago. It transformed the trucks braking and it was easy to install. Jim was helpful with my questions also.

                  I have one of Jim's setups on my '65 Cruiser and really like it. Jim has been very helpful.

                    I have his kit on my 60 Convert. Left the drum brakes on and it stops great. Instalation went smooth and kit was complete. Glad I put it on.
