Need help finding dics rotors...

I have a 48 Chevy truck with a front nova clip not sure what year. It also has tubular A arms with an OEM spindle? What i am needing help is find a set of crossed drilled and slotted rotors to swap out.

I have had no luck in finding rotors just due to the fact i dont know the year of the front clip.

The GM oem rotor has a number on the inside of 81905 but has not been any help to me or my local parts store.

Does anybody know of a web site with detailed measurments of rotors....


ANY HELP !!!

Thanks
bg

Give either Master Power Brakes, or Stainless Steel Brakes a call, they should help you out. They both have excellent web sites.

I would put money on, that they are 73-79 rotors.........................68-72 disk brakes are kind of rare.

Nova's, Firebirds, Camaros, and many of the mid-size cars (g-bodies) all run the same brake rotors and bearings.
Pull out one of the bearings and have your parts house check the number. Cross reference it to any of the above vehicles and you'll be good to go (or stop)

You can do this stuff online as well. Go to carparts .com or a similar site and just start cross-referencing part numbers... You will be amazed at the re-use...

If you are sure it is from a Nova and has stock spindles,
68-74 spindle and steering arm bolt together.
75-79 is integral.

I haven't seen any blemished... I mean, drilled/slotted discs for the 68-74, but there are plenty of complete upgrade kits with them... same parts as for 67-69 Camaro.

YESGO,

The spindle and steer arm is all in one .... so you are saying it is a 75-79 year


I did some checking with the bearing number and did not have any luck after about an hour of checking at carparts.com??? I will keep trying thou.

Thanks

I will post a picture of the spindle soon...

I cant say for sure what it is, but I can say for sure it is NOT a stock spindle from a 68-74 Nova.

Those are drop spindles which will make them harder to ID then something factory. Are there any stampings at all on them? What size is the rotor?

It sure looks like g-body/s10 stuff to me...but can't be sure.
