Disc Brake ID needed 37-41 Ford spindles
5 Attachment(s)
I committed the sin of buying an unknown at a swap meet this weekend. I bought a disc brake conversion kit of unknown make. I need a hand to ID so I can track down brake pads, rotors and I believe the rear bearing spacer. Take a look and see if you can help find the manufacturer. No identifying makers marks.

The price was right $25 at the Grizzly stadium swap meet near St. Louis. It has the wheel bearings and dust covers as well. I believe it is an older kit. The calipers do not look to be the standard Chevy metrics, and the hubs look like they would take a seperate rotor like a Wilwood but does not look like their caliper either. Any ideas helpful since google images did not come up with anything so far.

mustang ?
For a while late 60's or 70's single piston Mustang pieces were popular. I picked up a set of 40 spindles with the KH 4 piston calipers. The 65-66 mustang hubs used a bolt on rotor. Mopar, and Volvo rotors were also used in years past. You might find some info by checking out a stack of 70's rod magazines. Sometimes a public library in a large city will have old magazines on file. also check some of the vintage Mustang forums, or google mustang brake parts

Thanks Tim
Well that is an idea I had not thought of, guess I will haunt some mustang pages. The 'Stang bits would make me happy Ford on a Ford works for me. Still have no idea, they are nice but if I cant get them identified I will be bummed.

Any other ideas out there guys?

They look like an old superbell 67-72 midsize ford

OK you guys are right, these are an old Super Bell set using Mustang Brakes and calipers. I have gathered the rotors, '70 Torino, after removing the factory hub. Have the wheel bearings, now just missing the collared bushings to move the rotors forward on the hub. I have to check the inside diameter of the bearings and compare to the GM metric rotor bearing kits and see if that collar will work. If not, any ideas on sourcing, cant get a reply from Super Bell.

Any one have a brake kit with the GM metrics and could give me the bearings used? And the spacer?
