The cars have a real small diameter king pin. Not much meat on the spindle area. I'd be careful with large discs.

I haven't seen anything commercially available for the early spindles.

Most all of the early spindles have to be shortened and re threaded for later rotors and some kind of bearing race/seal adapters made. Caliper adapters can be made from 3/8" plate stock.
