Wheel Mounting Flange - How to Measure

We are attempting to determine whether we can use a disk conversion kit with a 2" dropped spindle on my current Chevy 14"X7" reverse Dayton wire wheels.

Would someone be able to assist me in directions for how to properly measure the wheel mounting flange. Pics, graphics would be helpful.

The disk brake manufacture is requesting the following:

You will need at least 12" of inside clearance. The face of the caliper does not extend past the face of the rotor. Basically, if you can place a ruler across the mounting flange of the wheel without it interfering with anything it should fit.

Attached are a few pics of my wheels on the car with stock drum config.

Thanks in advance.

Look at the Pics of this rim, inside where they're measuring Offset. If you lay a 12" ruler on the surface where the wheel mounts to the Hub/Drum and it doesn't touch anything, you should be good to go.>> http://members.cox.net/completevalue...at.html#OFFSET
In this Pic you can see what they mean by "the face of the Caliper doesn't extend past the face of the Rotor".http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/atta...chmentid=43639
