Mustang II spindle to rotor shim?

Has anyone ran into rotor rubbing on spindle when assembled?

What my problem is on another mustang II set up I have is during assembly I noticed that I could not set the drag on the rotors. When tighting nut on spindle rotor would stop spinning, but rotor was still loose. I noticed the rotor is actually rubbing the spindle. The set up is a Heidt's with 11 inch rotors and stock spindles (actual Ford).

Somebody has told me there is a 3/16" shim that goes on the spindle before installing the rotors. Has anyone heard of this? I didn't have to do this on my Willys.

Jason

OK...When you get away from Genuine FORD, I have little clue. Most times I stop reading a post when GM is mentioned as naturally it doesn't interest me. But I have read about spacers being available to move the inner cup outwards so the rotor hub will clear the spindle (on GM rotor crossover).

One of these fine GM Gentleman should be able to advise you from here...

You use some different parts for this conversion and off the top of my head, I cant give you the particulars. The seal is different and either the inner or outer bearing is different. I'll look through my build books to see if I can find the part numbers for you.

OK, dug it out. Good thing because both bearings are MII. It is the inner dust seal that give you the spacing. It is Federal Mogul # 471854. The dimensions are 1.937X1.561X0.50. The .50 thickness should do the trick for you.
