Ford Torino Ford 9\" question

I may have a line on a Ford Torino Ford 9" housing. It has the larger bearing and is 55 1/2 inches wide. How much further will the wheel mounting surface be on each side assuming using disc brakes from a Lincoln Ford 9"?

I am thinking this may become the rear and be pretty close to the width of the front waggy 44 (I'm hoping the final width of the 9 inch would be an inch or two shorter than the 44)

Anyone know how much space to account for past the bearing flange to the wheel?

Re: Ford Torino Ford 9\" question

Not sure how soon you are doing this but within the next month i will be putting in a 9in rear with disk brakes. If you can wait i will get you info after i am done. Dont forget that the car bolt battern is different from the trucks/jeep. As long as you have a cj.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

9\" question

Where are you getting your disk setup? I've looked around a little, but haven't run across one yet.

Re: 9\" question

From what I understand:

Lincoln rotors redrilled for 5 on 5.5 (I think they are at 5 on 5)
Caddilac Seville calipers (with parking brake)
Guy on ebay selling caliper mounting brackets for either large or small bearing Ford 9".

The only thing I'm a little worried about is the Torino ford has the newer 'large bearing' bolt pattern, but a lot of the parts are for the other pattern. The guy selling them on e-bay has brackets for the torino large bearing bolt pattern. He sells the brackets for $80. I will try and source the rest from bone yards, if not parts store.

I bought the torino housing for $100, so I hope it is as advertised. It's already 55 1/2 inches. I am going to buy some 35 spline axles and hopefully a high pinion third member. We'll have to see if it all comes together.
