Was under my 99 earlier this year tightening the bolts, cover loosened up, it looks nothin like my 73, which happens to be the biggest reminder of my Wagoneer, if they were the same bolt pattern, I'd swap it in for the larger brakes.

Its not a Q of how "noticeable" or "more" off center. They're either centered or they're not.

Took some quick measurements on 3 axles.

A D60 out of a 79 E250,
A 9 inch out of a 79 F150,
A 10.25 out of a 92 F350

The first, the pumpin is offset 2 inches, the pinion 5 inches from center.
Next, 3 inches for the pumpin, and 4 inches for the pinion
Last, 2 inches for the pumpkin, and 4 for the pinion.



The measurements are not exact, might be half inch give or take.









But, in order to get a more accurate comparison, I'd have to go measure a D60 out of a pickup, a 9 out of a van, and a 10.25 out of a van. But I don't have any around to measure. So, from this, they are all offset to some degree. I didn't measure the 74 E300 axle I have, I do know it's got more offset.

I'd like to have that, and the matching I-beams.

I beams are the same in that van as a pickup. I bolted the front beams for
a 76 F150 under the van to get disk brakes.

That's exactly what I want, I have an E-100, currently lookin for the bracket to mount a brake booster to my non-power van, I love the mid Fords.

I bought a manual master for disks for a e series. I don't remember year tho, as mine was a stock boosted setup that went out and I replaced it with a manual master.

I need the boost, it's rough on my handcontrols, the rod runnin to the brake pedal had to get a custom bend to miss the steering column, the added force stoppin could risk premature failure one day. I'm going to change out the steering geometry to be like the later Econoline series too, bring it around in front of the axle, just need a 78 E series gearbox. Since the beams are the same, I'll be lookin for 76 F100 beams.

I wouldn't look for info from many wrench turners here, this is where it's shared, I'm working on that after my manual disc brake swap.

I read the steering arm on the F-150 is too short for the steering on the Econoline, and unlike the van spindle, the arm is integrated on the truck spindle, do you have any pictures, I'm rounding stuff up. I found I can use a 74 Maverick manual master cylinder for disc/drum brakes, rear axle will be the biggest issue being a different bolt pattern, 5 on 4 1/2, E-100.

69 e100 owner

I have a 69 e100 cargo van. Trying to restore it, but parts are hard to find. Aftermarket suppliers don't carry second gen parts. Can only find 61 to 67, and 75 and up. Anyone have any hook ups?
