I am working on a disc brake swap on my scout rear 44 and I had the same problem. The solution is to take all your drum junk off and bolt the axles back in, now put the rear up on jack stand and start up your rig. Put it in second gear , grab your grinder and start grinding untill the disc fits over the roter.

That might be quicker than taking the axle to my Granddads basement and putting it in the lathe but i am only 21 and have a lot of life left and im not sure I like the idea of grinding on the axle while the jeep is running.

Did you ever think about putting rotor on the opposite side?

If so why did you decide to in a sense make your own high horsepower lathe.
Just make sure it is in 2 wheel drive and that the front tires are well blocked and you will be fine. I wanted the roters on the out side to gain the extra 3/4" of width. I made my own " high horse power" lathe because I am too cheap to pay some one else to do it for me and my gramps dosent have a lathe.:D
