9" disc brake conversion kit ?

Wow I haven't been here in a long time, well I have a 9" rear end out of a 61 ford truck and I have found what I believe to be a great deal on a complete disk brake kit for a 9" Ford rear with 3/8" flanges, I don't know much about rear ends but my question is how do I tell if I have 3/8" flanges on this early 9" ford, I'm guessing thats the bolt hole diameter on the housing flange?
Thanx guys
