Anyone have pics of rear disc conversion brackets?

I was going to make my own caliper brackets for my rear disc conversion. Does anyone have pics of their brackets or a set of TSM brackets? What rotors did you use? This is for a rear Waggy model 20, but any pics would be helpful.

Thanks,
Tom

Re: Anyone have pics of rear disc conversion brackets?

here is one like Im planning to use ( this one is from afco, but speedwya motors has them a few $$ cheaper)

we had a good thread about this a while back, im not sure if you remember it or not, stock front rotor behind the axle flange, then these weld on brackets, and stock front calipers ( gm calipers)

rotors $30 each, calipers $20 each, brackets $20 set

Re: Anyone have pics of rear disc conversion brackets?

Hey Ozark,
I remember the old thread. I was going to mount my rotors on top of the flange instead of behind. This is the way the TSM kits are. I guess I am trying to reverse engineer one of their kits so I can build my own. I will probably have to enlarge the center hole on the rotor to fit the front of the flange. I haven't started pulling parts yet, I am just researching the different brackets. Lots of people make their own brackets and I was wondering what they looked like. Thanks for the pics.

Later,
Tom

Re: Anyone have pics of rear disc conversion brackets?

what rotors are you planning to use Tom?

I was thinking about that but after a littel measureing I dont think there is enough meat to enlarge the rotor enough to go over the flange
on a STOCK front rotor at least

Re: Anyone have pics of rear disc conversion brackets?

Since I am using the 6 bolt Waggie pattern I was going to try Chevy,Toyota and Waggie front rotors. I have heard that the Chevy truck rotors will work.

Check out this site:
http://www.goodnet.com/~jayk1/discs.htm

I haven't really looked at all of the parts together yet. I am busy working on some other things. I am going to do the conversion before I put the axles under the Scrambler.

Thanks,

Re: Anyone have pics of rear disc conversion brack

The only thing about chevy truck (4x4) rotors is that they used 7/16 studs throughout the 70's (maybe after I'm not sure) then converted to metric. I believe that wagons have 1/2 or 9/16 studs. While this won't make a difference for most wheels, it will for rotors (you want the same size stud holes as your wheel studs or change to fit the rotor). You might have already thought of this but I figured i would mention it. Chevy Blazers used 1/2 studs in the 70's. I believe the center hole in the rotors were bigger before they went IFS.

Re: Anyone have pics of rear disc conversion brack

GreenMachine,

Thanks for the advice, I hadn't thought of that. I had an '86 Chevy 4x4 1/2 ton, but I can't remember what size lug nuts it used. I will probably get on the autozone.com website and do some cross-referencing before I start looking for parts.

Later,

************Added 9/3 at 6:24a:
Well it looks like the '83 Waggie front rotors are the same part number as the '86 Chevy K1500 rotors. I will have to verify it later at the parts store.
