Geeze, the bearings! Duh, I was visualizing a one piece hub/rotor. dang

Again, thanks for all the great info Whitedog. I knew I couldn't have been the first looking for an 8 lug kit.

Glad I could help.

I did alot of leg work in the past trying to come up with something of my own.

If you dare to check out my photobucket, you can see where I was going with it. http://s1074.photobucket.com/user/w...Brakes%20and%20Spindle?sort=6&page=1

Anyhow, there were a handful of guys that beat me to the punch.

I kind of lost interest in it and decided to go a different route.

Good luck.

Chris

Tadd,
If you decide to go with this set up keep us updated. I am very interested in doing this to my truck also.

Just FYI. You could also use K20 calipers instead of K10. They have an 80mm piston vs. 75. Realistically I don't think you'll tell the difference especially with a 13" rotor.

I'll look into those.... I have not read what the m/c bore size needs to be....any ideas?
I can't imagine them requiring anything too extreme.

1 1/8 was standard on them, but you could get 1 1/4 and 1 5/16. I think it all had to do with what rear brakes the truck was running.

I know the Corvette guys like using the truck 1 1/4 master, if that makes any difference.

Hi, I was looking to order from Hollister but have read these posts about his passing. I talked to him a few times, very nice and very smart.
I see the 8 bolt conversion kit on Ebay is listed for 55-59. And am wondering if anyone has used it on a 50. Thanks in advance, Dave
