Im pretty sure we can pull this off. Get the rotors on the 60FF hubs, bolt the calipers to the weld on plates. Then we will shim the calipers on the rotors, and line it all up. Tac into place and burn some nice welds to finish.:party0010:

3/4 chevy rotors and calipers seem to be the most common choice.

why weld them?
the spacing is perfect to bolt them on with no spacers

I think it's the mid 90's ford vans that have a disk that go over the hubs instead of having to pull the hubs everytime you want to work on enything.

info then... the caliper mounting bracket should be about 13/16" from the back side of the rotor
easiest way to do the spacing is to put the caliper and pads onto the bracket,
then slide all that over the rotor, maybe use compressed air to get the caliper to clamp the rotor tight
that will show you where the bracket will land on the axle
with a ford d60 the chevy rotors but the bracket tight to the stock drum brake flange
with a ford d70u the ford rotors put the bracket flush with the backside of the stock drum brake flange
I think lordco numbers on the ford rotor were 5445,
drawing a blank for the chevy number and dont have one here as I gave it to a friend for his ford d60 conversion last month
