Post 37-48 Ford Spindle bolt pattern?

I'm looking at adapting an early Ford disc brake kit to another application with bolt on spindles (Rambler). What I need to know is the bolt pattern (center to center) of the spindle, where the spindle bolts on. Size of bolts (diameter) would be nice too. I know the late model AMC brakes will work (all 2WD AMC/Rambler used the same spindle pattern from at least 1950-83), but those are getting hard to find. If the bolt pattern of the Ford isn't to large, the caliper brackets can be drilled for the AMC spindle pattern. Then newer type calipers such as Wildwood can be used, even if the AMC rotor is required. Getting all kind of ideas after receiving a Speedway street rod catalog!!

spindle concersion

I cut off the spindle stub from a perfectly good set of a 37 ford. ( stupid me) one of the guys at work brought in a magazine article that showed a few pictures and it said it was an easy swap. AMC to early ford. It wasn't, the holes didn't line up. I had a milling machine at work and spent several hours after the shift was over and ending up making an aluminum adapter plate. I ended up with slotted loles in the ford spindles i still have to heliarc to fix
