Going slower faster

I'm helping my brother build his first rod.The deal is we want to try to use what we have first the buy new stuff.Brief description ,traded an s10 rear end for a decent 51 Ford cab I have a warmed up 327 with 2 4barrels out of my truck.Turbo 350 that was a leftover,likewise an explorer 8.8 posi with disc brakes.We were given a model a front axle with spindles.Now our problem I can't find a disc brake kit for the axle we have.I checked the archives and I "think" the only real obstacle is the bolt pattern for the backing plate/caliper bracket.Please correct me if I am wrong. Drum front brakes are not an option for him.I also have the truck spindles and I also have a set off a 50 ford coupe.Would one of these be a better option?I am not afraid to fab I just need to be pointed in the right direction

Have a look at this link, these brackets will fit early ford straight axles/spindels; the bearing spacer allow you to use early GM rotors. The GM calipers and rotors are real common and can be had reasonably.

OK fellas,I do have a speedway catalog,BUT I have a model A Ford axle.That would be 1928-1931.Not a B or a T.Not 36-48,Model A.It is a moot point anyway as I picked up a 40 axle with spindles at the turkey run today.I am going to mike both because I saw more A's than anything.Really though ,I do appreciate the input
