How I would approach this:
First compare the length of the Graham spindle to the chev spindle to see that the length of the Graham spindle will allow you to get the washer and nut on and get a cotter key in..if that works then measure the OD of the bearings to fit the chev rotor and the ID of the bearing to fit the Graham spindle..Once you have that then go to a bearing catalog and try to find some bearings of the correct OD and ID for your application..

Just may work..Good Luck

Sam

Or if that doesen't work. The spindles can be machined. Call All-Tech Performance, Burton. In the book.. Ask for big Bob

What Chevy Spindle And Rotor Do I Use To See If This Is Going To Work. Can You Still Find These At A Scrap Yard Or Do I Have To Go To A Swap Meet. Thanks For Info , Fred

Another point is that I would pick a metric rotor and caliper such as used by Speedway Motors on their MII conversions as those work wellfor this sort of thing..

Problem with most thirties cars is the spindle stub is too long. Has to be cut/rethreaded/cotter hole redrilled..

When I change these I usually use the spindle dimensions of Ford Mustang, Ranger or Granada. Then adapt bearings/seals to fit..
