Front Brake convertion kit

Hello All

As I said in my first posting ( general section)Ive got a vibration on the front drivers side .Shop said everything good except wheel bearings.
Changed wheel bearing ,had tires re balanced and still have the vibration.
So I pulled everything apart and started checking myself ,everything feels good to me.Also pulled disk so I could check spindles .The drivers side mics 1.743 ,checked the bearing and it mics 1.749.Being a machinist I think that is way to much clearance,but never built a car before maybe not.
I think there is a drop spindle and I know there is a after market disk brake kit on the car. I believe when I got the car his buddy told me there was a drop spindle on it .
Can anyone ID any of this ? brake kit,spindle .
Also its a 1941 Dodge D 19 Custom

PS There is 7 inches between bolts to mount the brake caliper. Read some where thats how you ID the caliper.

PSS There is no number or markings on any thing .

Got a picture of the caliper also? I see numbers and markings on the hub of the rotor. MINTHK 5007 and 885IN. Might do a search of various brake catalogs, and see what it fits. Also a bolt pattern for your hub will help narrow it down. A Ford or Mopar if it's 5x4.5", or Chevy if it's 5x4.75" I doubt it's Chevy or GM, as it doesn't look like any of the GM hubs.

A Thought

I have no idea what you have on for wheels but I once had a vibration that came from a self tapping bolt that I used to hold the center cap on the rim. It had too big of a head and caused the rim to stick out a bit at that point. Just a thought to check the back of you wheels and make sure that nothing is out of the normal there ...

Hello All
Update on the vibration problem. I pulled both sides off and mic ed everything.Both sides mic the same so I do not believe its a bad spindle.
I have found out they are gm calipers.
Also tighten the wheel bearing up a little tighter ( maybe too tight ,don't have a torque wrench ,going to get one soon) .It took some of the virbration out but not all of it .
Switched tire from passenger side ,still the same.Going to check the back side of the rims for flatness.
A few things guys have told me ,,,warped front disk???,,,Drive shaft out of balance ???
Any ideas or help would be great !!
Posted some new pics also.

Jeff
