Rockwell axle build-up part III (Pinion Brakes)

Well I got the first one done.
I will take some better progress pic's when I do the second one.
Rotors and calipers from a 91 Lumina. Stock glide pins. 3/16" x 4" x 3" angle iron.
You can't see the lower bracket, but it's there.

Looking good.. Are you and Pat still trying to get your vehicles finished at the same time? [img]images/graemlins/30.gif[/img]

Neil..... Are you taking notes here??? [img]images/graemlins/sleep2.gif[/img]
In reality, Aaron is probably going to have 2 nice axles with nothing to put them under..

Ricky...seeya...

That was quick Aaron. We were just talking about what kind of rotors there were for the lumina @ noon. And by evening you have them mounted and everything. [img]images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Tell the guys at the jobsite that if they could do it any faster you would trade places with them. [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]

I think his future deployment has dampened any thoughts of an "east coast Jeeper build off".

We are suppose to go get the 715 next weekend. You still want to tag along? Neil can't make it, he'll be in Flordia attending military school to learn that it's bad to have metal in engine oil. And now Pat is sick, he has it comming out of both ends. BWAAAAAhahaaahahahaaa We were hoping you would tag along for comedy relief, we know your only good at pushing buttons.

Re: Rockwell axle build-up part III (Pinion Brakes)

No, I wont be learning that metal in oil is bad I already knew that, I will be learning how to check to see if there is anything bad in it.

P.S. It's been a few hours since you called your daddy, dont you think you should give him a call and talk like a girl on the phone for an hour or so.

It replaces the stock drums (200 lbs) with one disk at the pinion. Stopping power is multiplied by the gear ratio (6.72:1), because the rotor is on the other side of the gears.

Removing the drums also lets the axle take rims with backspacing.

Re: Rockwell axle build-up part III (Pinion Brakes)

don't break those extremely weak shafts with a short wheelbase jeep. you'd lose brakes and careen out of control!
