Remove rotors on 75 Chevy
 
Purchased a new set of rotors for my 75 Monte for the front. Pretty sure the rotors are original from the factory. Pads look like been changed, but who knows how long so doing it all. I've got the rotors and pads and went to install them and have the calipers fully off. Usually, the rotors would just slide off, or need a little tap with a mallet and then pop off. These don't move... at all.

I've been looking around and see that Corvettes are sometimes riveted on from the factory. There are maybe 4 or 5 holes on the rotor facing toward the hub, but really can't see inside there because of the dirt.

Anyone have any experience with these? Thanks in advance.

The rotors o those cars are built into the front hubs...You have to pull the bearings off the spindles to remove them. I take it you dont have your new rotors yet, or you would have seen that they are all one unit

And don't over tighten the bearing when going back with it also.:sweat:

That was actually my next question. I'm not finding the torque specs for what the nut is supposed to be torqued to. Any ideas?

Trying again tonight!

Actually found this

"Tighten hub nut to 12 ft-lbs/16 Nm while rotating
wheel. Back off and finger tighten. Back off
slightly to install cotter pin."

Sound right?

Cool thanks. I didn't get around to doing them last night. I want to make sure I get everything right and taking the car out tonight so didn't want it to be down.

Do you know of anywhere it shows step by step on how to do this? Like how the bearing all look inside and how to put it all back together? I've changed rotors many times that didn't have the bearings in them, and changed hubs with bearing already pressed in. Never one like this though. I just want to make sure when I take the rotors off, that I get them back together right.

Thanks.
