I ran the Wilwood 6 piston Crown Vic brakes on my CV swapped F150. About 4k lbs,worked great.

I just put the 6 piston Wilwood kit on the front of a 66 F100 yesterday... is there a simple way to get brake hoses? They use 1/8" pipe thread on the calipers. The existing GM calipers use a Banjo bolt. I couldn't find a brake hose that has a pipe thread. Didn't really want to use braided hoses with separate fittings each end.

No I was told by Wilwood their calipers do not support banjo fittings. Now you might be able to take apart the caliper and re-tap to a straight thread,machine the lip where the 1/8 fitting goes on the caliper and use a banjo bolt. My front caliper had a little bit of a lip that would look like it could work.
