Disc Brake front ends

Hi All,

Have a chassis left over from a 1968 Oz built F350, with the last of the SIX stud stud wheel pattern, but the FIRST of the twin beam front axles.

Talking to a bloke who reckons he knows a bit about them, he has swapped a later model 5 STUD F100 Disc brake front end under something similar. When I enquired if you could just swap out the spindles and associated brake bits and pieces from the original drums, he says I would probably have to use the complete front axle from the later (1976 on?) version. Anyone done anything similar? Maybe the F100 front wouldn't be heavy enough for a F350, but as it is only a bit of a project and not going to be doing overnighters every day of the week, really only something to gin around with. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers, Dave
