Thanks to those of you Forwardlookers who have offered assistance in creating this design buck for rear disc brake adaptation to old tapered-axle MOPARs (8 3/4" and 8 1/4" axles). Special thanks to "Alumcan" for his donation of a function axle housing stub end and shaft, plus brake backing plate/outer oil seal unit for study. Also thanks to "KRATEPARTS" for his information on possible sealed bearing unit for use in this, simplifying the adapter plate if it works. Will keep all you Forwardlookers posted on developments as I figure things out. Watch this space!
