on a ford 9 in rear end what rotors and calipers to use for disc brakes.

I have a ford 9 inch rear end with small bearings and would like to install some disc brakes without buying someones kit. What rotors and calipers can i use for this installation . I don't need emergency brakes either. Thanks for all your help. 1931 graham rod. Fred

The mid '70's Lincolns with discs were the Versailles. While it can be a good choice, finding one with all of the parts plus in good shape is getting tough as Ford has discontinued replacement pieces.

As an idea, Speedway offers a weld on bracket/kit

I know you said you don't want a kit, but sometimes ya just gotta see what's out there and often, you'll find it ends up cheaper
