What rotors do I have on Ford 9"

I have a Ford 9" in my nova and it has disk brakes on the rear. I need to replace the rotors so today I pulled the wheel off and had to pull the axel in order to get to the rotor which is held onto the axel by the wheel studs that thread through the rotor and then through the . I can not get the rotor off of the axel because there is a pressed on bearing that is behind a 4 hole plate that keeps the rotor from sliding off. I looked on the rotor and it says Century then the numbers 118 then 636006. I know nothing about Ford 9" and have never seen a set up like this before. How do I remove the bearing and how do I identify the rotor? I attempted to upload some photos but the site says the file is too big.
Thanks guys!

Looks to me like it is somebody's half-baked home-built Jethro designed rear disc conversion to me. You are going to have to press off the axle bearing to get it apart. All the rear disc conversions I've seen the disc slips onto the studs from the outside(wheel mount face side)

The #'s don't ring a bell but the rotor looks like an S-10/Blazer 4x4 front disc that just slips over the studs on the front hub.

You could be right. The car was redone in 1976 and I do not know if kits were even available then. I have never heard of having to pull the axle to change the rotor but this is what I have to work with.

Being that old it might be that era Corvette rear brake rotor?? WS6 Trans Am 4-wheel disc?? What does the caliper bracket look like?? What style caliper(single piston, 4 piston, aftermarket?) is on it??

Might be Lincoln from the mid/late 70's, any FORD logo's on anything brake related??
