If you are using 73-77 GM rotors, you will use a Speedway bearing and seal adapter, part #91009301.

I've been one of the street rod techs here at Speedway for about a year and half now. To be honest with you, I can't see where people save a whole lot of money by trying to use basic bearings, and getting their own stuff. From my expererience, most of our customers get the wrong rotors like Metric rotors or 69-72 rotors instead of the proper 73-77 rotors, or they end up with used junk parts. They end up frustrated and wishing they would have just purchased the whole kit. We offer several different kits for the early Ford spindles.

You can purchase a a complete brake kit for as cheap as $200.00.

Scrounging around junk yards costs money, and you end up with used parts, and the last time I checked, salvage yards aren't really overly cheap.

If you insist on going ala carte. You can use the bearing kit Henry Hi-Rise mentioned and the bearing and seal adapters I mentioned. You will need caliper brackets also.

nairb, i bought the kit 15yr back, it is a magnum econo kit, same as your kit using chev rotors, lg bracket or thick cast, just the bearing adaptors need to be replaced, im not a moron totally, bodyman that built cars to go to cruise and barrat jackson, 35yr in the business, retired, didnt want to go to a machine shop just to machine the adaptors when you should be able to pick the phone up and in a few days be at my door. but even calling magnum , got their# through a freind, were no help at all, dont know if anybody ever had this problem ever but i do and no supplier gives a crap, all they want to do is sell a whole kit, you said $200 but where, all are $300+ for the econo and all i need is the adaptors for the bearings and yes i have the sense to look at bearing#s for replacement, anyway you are about right about replaceing the whole kit as you wouldnt have the hassel and i like the look of ALum, hubs with my rebuild, im rebuilding a old gasser that george potete owned in the past, i have had it for 25 or so years, being rebuilt from ground up with 4in chop, channel, new tube frame, 6in kickup in front,12 in rear, 9in in rear with 4bar all around, drop in front, glass tilt front, suicide doors, 31.18.5 in rear, destroked 350,reworked 350 turbo, oh its a prefect,51, cousin to the anglia with a 94in wheelbase, you know like junior thompson had. also i do all work myself or try to, 4dr into a 2dr, but i still need the bearing adaptors, 40 ford spindles, chev rotors and cal. also will have around $9000 total in it not $30,000+

If speedydeedy doesn't have the right ones, (shhhh, you guys s'posed to do that stuff in the PM's ) You can give these folks a call,
http://www.braketechsolutions.com/BTSV101/Index.php

They're in North Carolina, real nice people to deal with, and the parts are good quality as well.

If you tell them just what you need, they may sell just the adapters to you.

Later, mikey

You can buy just the adapters from Speedway....Narib gave you the part number...just because it does not show it on the web site does not mean they don't have them.....call thier 24 hour order number.

I didn't say you were doing anything wrong speedydeedy, I could have misinterpreted the inference though.

Maybe the bigsmile happyface and the "shhhh" and the fact that I wrote "if speedydeedy doesn't have the right ones"...maybe all of that didn't come through as some joking around.


I do know that the guy in North Carolina uses domestic machine shops to make many of his parts that he sells , if I wanted to keep my money in the states I'd at least give him a call. Although I can't honestly say if those parts are made here or not. Speedway imports many of their products. Not to say they aren't good ones, I use speedway stuff all the time, but imported just the same.

Later, mikey

sorry i havent got back about the posts, had a computer blowup, still havent got mail up and running or much of anything else but i found the board, thanks to nairb and others for advice on the parts i needed and i see i cant read either as they do have a kit for $200, must be why i am a body/painter not a mech, hahaha cant stand it, dont like the grease, i was trying to still use what i had, not going to say why i needed new adaptors, but after looking at everything i have most needs to be replaced anyway except for brackets. im old and hardheaded, oldschool guys are like that. ill try to make up my mind after xmas or so. when you have a project that everything needs to be made its harder to do. now got to see where the fuel cell can go, thanks a bunch
