Pottsy: Where did you get your information to put it all together? I'm thinking of doing the same thing for my rig. Can or have you done a write up of the parts used? Thanks, Mike

Here is the gritty details.... :roxy:

The calipiar is from Jesse over at http://www.highangledriveline.com/.....

$103.00 bucks shipped to my front door here in Ohio from California!

That was the only thing I bought...besides the E-brake ratch lever which came out of a Ford escort (early 90's) at a bone yard for $5......:smokin:

So do the math I have $108 bucks in to this set-up....

Sad thing is I know who ever produced that darn caliper has a total of maybe $25 in to... Probably sells it to Jesse for $50 whole sale.... and he retails is for $90..... :flipoff2:

But I have about 4 hours machine time (my time) in to the disc and mounts.

On the back of the t-case there is a (was) a drum assembly...

I pulled the drum and brake shoe mounting plate off.
Machined the disc to fit in the same place that the drum fit/mounted.

Then I ordered the caliper.

Then took off the t-case rear out put shaft seal/speedometer gear houseing part. (not sure what the part is called) .. With this part I then had the part in hand that I needed to make a calipier mounting plate to fit. I took a peice of 3/8 steel plate an bored a large hole in the center that was .002"I.D. larger then main O.D. of the t-case rear out put shaft seal/speedometer gear houseing part.

I then placed this part (calipier mounting plate) on the t-case rear out put shaft seal/speedometer gear houseing part. Marked/ laid out my hole parttern for the grade8 mounting bolts and finish cutting the calipier mounting plate.

That was pretty much it.. besides buying four grade 8 bolts that where .5" longer then the original t-case rear out put shaft seal/speedometer gear houseing part mounting bolts... DAM THAT WAS A MOUTH FULL....

I had to fab a cable to attach the brake lever to the calipier and adjust things...

All in all it was a very simple project. The hardest part of the project was assembling it all to veryify fit an function and then un-assembling it and painting all the parts... That was easy it was "waiting" for the parts to dry so I could put it all back together and play with it that the hard part.....:flipoff2:

Hope this helps give you all an idea how to do it or not to do it to your model 18.

So, did you just fab the rotor out of 1/4" plate? It looks like it takes up a little less space than the original drum setup.
