Disc brake swap

by Kevin


The rotors are from a Chevrolet C50. They are a hubless design. I made an adapter plate that is held on by the wheel studs and bolted the rotors to the adapter plate. The calipers and brake hoses are Ford F350, around 2000 model year. The calipers are mounted to an adapter that is bolted to the back of the spindles where the drum brake backing plates were bolted. Powered by Hydroboost. My brother and I did this again on a '40 Chevrolet 1 ton using calipers and rotors from a Lincoln Navigator. The same idea, but the brakes were smaller diameter to fit behind smaller wheels.
