I've finally gotten my front axle disc brake conversion done. I'm working on the draglink now, but everything else looks really good. I followed Grigg's tutorial with using P30 spindles being mounted onto my existing axle. Got new king pins, bronze bushings and all new brake hardware. Looking forward to getting it back on the road soon. Picture overload. LOL.

Hmm. I just accessed them from 3 different computers. 1 of which isn’t associated to my Stovebolt login or the Imgur site. They all loaded ok.

The links work for me (but, each link goes to a correct photo and sequences into unrelated photos?).

Hy guys, tried them all again, they seem like they will open, a lot of fast activity down in the left lower corner then nothing but a gray screen. I know a bit about vehicles, but nothing about confusilators.

fclaridge,
Are you planning to keep drum brakes on the rear or convert them to disc also?
