Not sure about the Lincoln pieces, but Ford offers a fairly priced rear disc set-up w/emergency brake in their FRPP catalog.Parts are all new and the retail price was about $400. It is based off of production pieces, they may be from the Lincoln.

Hello. I used a set of calipers, mounting brackets and pads from a late 90's exlporer that bolted right on to my 9". I used a set of gm envoy rotors because i needed the chevy pattern for my s-10 but i could have just used the rotors from the explorer if i needed the 4.5 bolt pattern.

Wow, that has got to be the deal of the century. I recently switch out the master cylinder on my 34 project to one that had ports on the other side to get away from my exhaust. I have 4 wheel disc's with Wilwood billet polished calipers. While bleeding the calipers one of the bleeder screws snapped off. I drilled it to a convenient screw extractor size and tried to remove it...no luck. I eventually snapped the screw extractor off in the caliper, so now I'm really $#rewed. Had to order a new caliper from Summit to the tune of $175.

Maybe I am confused here. How did you use a chevy patten on the ford 9" axles? The 9" truck pattern is 5 X 5.5

Did you have the axle shafts redrilled? Either way, its interesting to know that the explorer brackets and all will work. Got any pics of the swap or the compelted install?

Thanks,
Brian

I used a set of strange axles with the 5.3/4 bolt pattern.

I could take some pictures if you want.

Ford 9" Disk Brakes

I put a 77 Lincoln 9" with rear disk in my 51 Dodge pickup (photos on here and on my website at www.oldtruck.sytes.net)
I was thinking about buying new parts for it anyways, and the old Lincoln parts are getting harder to find (besides expensive!). I found out that the place that did my IFS and installed the 4 bar and air bags in my truck, sell a bolt in ford 9" kit that uses standard GM rotors and metric calipers with E-Brake. (calipers about $40.00 and rotors about $35.00) I just have to get my axles re-drilled. It's a great solution for replacing rear drums or outdated disk brake parts with current disk brakes. Their webpage is www.jimweimerrodgarage.com and you can look at the brake kit HERE It's at the bottom of the page.

I seen these on ebay

These are NEW Brackets to allow use of Big Lincoln VENTED rotors and Cadillac calipers with built in parking brakes on the rear of your Ford 8 inch or 9 Inch rear axle assembly.

As long as your 60's or 70's Mustang, Torino, Montego,
Cougar, Maverick, Granada, Comet, Ranchero, Fairlane, etc
has NO rear differential gear cover, and the center section unbolts from the FRONT, then this is the bracket set that fits all except the uncommon Big-Bearing models.

These are for use with the car 4-1/2 lug circle.
