One more little tidbit of info. When you bolt the brackets to the back of the flange, it will cause to bracket to flex, stopping the caliper from going all the way in to the mounting holes. I ground some on the axle side of the bracket, then fine tuned the clearance on the caliper side after all was bolted up tight. The brackets are cut to a tight tolerance. Another little heads up for you.

Hmmm...thank you. One more fun thing to expect.

Finally got a few hours to myself in the sun. The Dodge D60 brackets from this vendor actually do fit with some liberal grinding on the ID portion, mostly towards the outer ears. Hung the caliper at about 4 o'clock, may redrill and get them to about 3 o'clock..someday. I know bleeding will suck at the lower height but I'll probably just get a auto-bleeder kit anyways. Hung the hub on there and everything lines up nicely.

I had a hard time with Distributor gears, but I'm up and running again. I have added hydro boost too now. It stops real good now with little effort on the pedal.

Next is swapping out the front diff for one with open knuckles and disc brakes.

Glad to hear it!!

Bought 3 new lug bolts and nuts today to see (if they'd fit). Staked the disc to the hub (easy with an aluminum drift and a 2lb machinists hammer) and looks good..waiting on tax $$ to complete it. It was 15.97 for 3 lugs/nuts, so 13 more to go..

also ordered up some spindle nuts from autoparts.com ...hope it's legit. 2 dorman sets were under 18 shipped, which is a lot cheaper than the store down the road that stocks dorman.

edit: Autoparts.com canceled the order saying the part was no longer available. seems like Dorman changed the application number since I looked it up on another site..oh well, their loss for not updating their software. Got it from Rockauto instead .

Been going through heck trying to find the right size spindle nuts. What is shown for a FF D60 in 1971 fsj trucks is way too small.

The outer diameter of my nuts is 2.5", inner is 1 7/8ths. Can't tell the thread count, but it's certainly wider than what rockauto sent me.

http://www.dormanproducts.com/catalo...ec11_Part3.pdf

What I *think* I need now is 615-122 and 123...but it'll cost me 68 to my door to find that out. I think I'm just going to clean up the old nuts and order a 2.5" socket tool and bite the 30 bux I spent on smaller sets :/

That covers ALL rear and front dana's. FF, Semi, everything, with diagrams.

Got one side rebuilt, waiting on 7 more lugs for the other side, and need to grind out the brackets some for the calipers.






looks good so far...yeah I know I should redrill and rotated them up some, but this will do for now.

Currently putting together the other hub. Noticed on install that the inner bearing seems to have 1/4" play in and out, don't recall this on the other side that I have installed above. Bearings looks new and the races are fine..need to pull the other side and see. The seal is fully seated and not missing any parts, must be normal..

battling wonderful Colorado spring storms, but it's coming together nicely!

All came together nicely.

Had to grind out the brackets a bit for the calipers to mount. I left them clocked down...doesn't matter to me at this point as long as I can get them bled.

used long 14mmx1.5 studs, musta cost me $60 in studs and nuts to do the rear..closer to 70 actually. They don't match the front. Another thing I don't really care about, will just carry extras.

Installed the hubs by spinning it slowly and pre-loading the bearings to 50lbs. Then backed off to handtight, put in the lock washer, and tightened the outers to 150lbs. Hubs still spun ok but with resistance..I did pack the bearings pretty well with wheel hub grease so that's likely why. Hope they're ok..

16.5 rockcrawler Dwindow rims clear the calipers easy.

So just brakelines left to do...and installing pads (don't want to let it sit for another month or however long it will with pads on it).

If anyone goes with the kit from Gubnhi, and has a narrow drum FF D60 from around 1971, order the DODGE kit and tell him its for an EARLY J-truck, NOT a J20 d60. You will need the smaller axle seals as well, he has the right part numbers for our setups now.

I'll update this when everything is plumbed up and see what goes...I want to get a Disc/Disc MC for it but not sure what fits at this point..we'll see how the 78 MC stops it that I have cobbled in there now. I don't expect anything stellar, did this swap more to avoid paying high $$ for unavailable drums and parts for this oddball old axle.
