    Red face Mustang11 brakes

     



    I've done a search and couldn't find any one thats used late model ford f100
    disk brakes on a mustang11, thinking of making the change but would like to keep my 5x51/2 bolt pattern.
    I know there are some after market brake set ups out there but would like to
    know if anybody has the bearing #s and seal # to work with mustang spindles and f100 disks,i can make the caliper brackets and pick up the large gm calipers local.
    any help on this?
    thanks:

    You've struck a nerve with your question and I just realized how dumbed down this country has become. This is supposed to be the information age, but it seems to me it's the anti-information age.

    When I was younger and building this and that, there was a progressive size chart available from this place or that where you could choose the size part you wanted and find a part number beside it. In particular, I remember such a chart that I had from Chicago Rawhide, a huge seal manufacturer. They sold out to SKF several years ago and now you have to have the make, model and year of the vehicle to source a part. BALONEY. Pi**es me off.

    I do believe however, that your local NAPA store will still have paper books that have progressive size charts. I know the local guy did this for me a while back when I needed a particular size O-ring seal.

    Thanks for the follow up, went to napa (no gray hairs working at this one) no one was or would take time or let me look at their book.
    Went to an old parts house here on the northeast side of atlanta, (where i should have gone first) the owner and i both looked for the better part of two hours and found the right combo for the outter bearings, but it looks like i've got to come up with a bearing adaptor for the inner bearing.
