mustang II spindle/bearings/gm rotor?'s

I'm trying to gather parts for my MII front clip conversion on my 63 Nova. I guess aggrevation is the price you pay for not buying a complete kit.
I want to put a set of 3rd gen camaro rotors one the stock MII spindles. From what I've researched you use an A12 and A13 bearing, remove the inner race and use the MII piece.
When I asked at the parts store for wheel bearings, I was asked if it was for a 6.75" ring gear... huh. what's the rear got do with the spindle. I went home did some diggin' on napa's site and noticed the dimensional differenes. I measureed the "inner" diameter of the spindle and it is 1.375" (w/6.75" ring gear). An A5 bearing is listed for this and the O.D. of the race is too large for the gm rotor.
1. The A13 bearing is 1.378", .003" larger; is it acceptable to use this bearing with 3th play.
2. Do I have to use the A5 bearing and machine the rotor to accept it.

Okay; if you Ford guys can stop laughing long enough to help a dumb Chevy guy, I'd really appreciate it.

The Pinto spindle is the same as the MII spindle right?

Just use the stock pinto bearing. Always worked for me... You need the 82 and up S-10 bearing(same as the pinto. That's the big bearing version. they are the same. If that don't work then drive out the outer race and install the pinto bearing. It's taper is greater. It will leave a small gap between the castle nut and the hole for the cotter though. Just peen the cotter over the nut.

And your gonna need to ream the pinto spindle to fit the ball joints. Are you using the metric caliper?




I just reread it. I think you have the 79 to 82 rotor. It's a tad smaller.

To the best of my knowledge I have the 82-88 camaro/firebird rotors(10.5"). At this point I plan on using the metric calipers.
The A arms i have use the mopar style screw in ball joints. Will I still need to ream the holes? I've done a mock up; lots of thread showing to start the castle nuts. There's a thick spacer/washer to be used on the top ball joint stud and with it on there looks to be more than enough thread.

I don't know if chrysler ball joints will fit. I never used them. I always had to use the nova lowers or the chevelle lowers.
