please help, trying to find disc brake that will fit over outer axle flange on ford 9" rear-end. Do not like B.C. broncos version where disc hat is on inside. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I got explorer rotors (and brakes) on my semi-float 60 (same as small bearing 9"). I think that is pretty common.:smokin:

Not real up on the Fords but my friend puts togther 9" dics brake kits. He uses Crown Vic/Explorer diffs for the donors. The hat style is the only one I've seen due to the parking brake set up.
If you want, I can send you his email address and he can help you out.

Out of curiosity do you know the measurement across the inside diameter of the hat part on these rotors? Looking for about 7.5".

Thanks.

Am I missing something here? :confused: You are taking about the flange on the end of the shaft right?
Why not cut down the OD of the flange a little so the rotor will fit. Take it to a machine shop or get a buddy to spin it while you hit it with a grinder.

Yes the wheel hub (fit inside) to rotor clearance.

Why grind or machine if you can find rotors that fit to begin with? :flipoff2:

Grinding or machining is plan B.

That's why I asked.

Do you know the answer to my original question?

(sorry for the hijack, it was a simple quick question)

Nope, I'm just starting to gather parts for my front/rear disk swap on a set of 44/9" axles from a '74 F100. I've bought Chevy front caliper mounts for the 44 and a set of weld on mounts for the 9". I haven't gotten around to buying rotors yet.

The axle flanges on my 9" measure right at 7" so it looks like I'll have an easier time finding rotors for mine.

thanks for the reply, I ended up taking my axle to my friends shop and he turned them on the lathe, he only had to turn them a 1/4 " to make them fit.
