ok, so im wondering if anyone has ever tried to fit e-series falcon front disc's to an 70-80's f100 pick up. with the appropriate bearing, would they fit? what i am after is the falcon stud pattern as they are very easy to find rims for (i cant find s**t for my truck anywhere :roll: ).

also, what would you have to do to ditch the drum rear end for disc? would that be a matter of just changing the ends or would you need to replace the whole diff housing? thanks in advance for any help.

What year is you F100?

Depending on fit, I would look at the AUII/III hubs or the BA/BF Hubs and associated braking as it is a major upgrade from the E Series in the braking department, this will still give the the 114.3x5 stud pattern and offset shouldn't worry you too much with the F100.

If fitting the AU/BA hubs would be too difficult then look at the Big Brake Upgrade kits.

69 Mustang upgrade

XY 330mm upgrade

E Series 330mm upgrade

Not sure on the rear but depending on the track, you could look at an XC type 9" rear or maybe look at modifying the brake set up from a later model Falcon/Territory to fit.

its a 1978 truck. would the axle's or shafts or what ever you call them be a thicker diameter on the f truck in turn being to big to fit thought a falcon disc/hub? does that make sense?

A better idea IMHO would be to fit the whole Falcon E-series front suspension and diff using this kit;

Maybe grab a bargain as the business is closing down.

Got this info from Timken US, for 1978 F100 RWD.

Front Bearings:
Inner Bearing; Cone Bore-1.3775", width-0.66". Cup OD-2.328", width-0.47"
Outer Bearing; Cone Bore- 0.8856", width-0.655". Cup OD-1.781", width-0.475"

Need to find the info on the E Series Bearings, Have a set put away. I might measure them tomorrow if I can find a battery for my digital vernier.

Hello,

From memory the F100 pattern is the same as Daihatsu, Suzuki and Lada. Now the Landcruiser is 5 bolt, it may also be the same stud diameter. It may give a better chance of finding some at a wrecker. Even new Sunraysia's could be worth a look.

correct mate, hatsu, zuki n lada studs are the same. still having trouble finding rims though. i would like to avoid paying stupid amounts of cash at these rip off wreckers too. i have thought about new rims. also seeing as i live in tassie, im a bit restricted to what people have for sale.

would it not be an upgrade(providing they fit) to be running falcon brake disc's over f100?
