Default Dual rear brake bracket

Any of you know of anyone who has had or anyone that makes a duel rear brake caliper bracket for our volvo 240s id like to run separate calipers for a hydro but not completely separate front from the rear brakes or just tap into stock system, thanks.

Someone was making them at some point. Have you searched? I'll try and find the thread later.

I made some. I’ll take some measurements tomorrow and post them. They work with stock calipers and use the existing hand brake cable holes

Anyone know how difficult/impossible it would be to use a stock 240 handbrake with a hydraulic unit? I would love to get rid of the drum style parking break. On one of my cars it does not work at all, and the other makes boat loads of noise. I wouldn't mind paying a few hundred $$$ to have a STRONG functional parking brake.

I mean, it's just a lever adapted to move a piston?

How does one keep the ratcheting mechanism so it can actually be used as a parking break and not a drifty device.

The ratcheting mechanism is near the handle itself right? I wouldn’t think you’d have to touch that.

Leave the lever alone, put a master cylinder under car and actuate with factory levers cable.

Retro Turbo lists some. Never bought from them before but I'm told they are reputable.
