    Hi 61 250, sounds like a cool truck! Sorry it took so long for me to notice your question, maybe I didn't get a notice. Anyway it is a 12" disc, I found a serviceable one at the UPAP and it fit perfectly. Glad you found the write up useful, My friend with an EB open knuckle told me how easy his conversion was and got me started. I soon found out the closed wasn't as easy. I also needed some brass spindle bushings I think the part number is C1TZ-3110-A. The needle bearings in the hubs have a different ID than the axles. I had to use some thin metal shim stock to fit the bushing snugly in the hub though. Hope all this helps another old Ford truck guy. Kent

    Hey man, disc brake conversion is super helpful! I wanna try it on my 61 closed knuckle. I had a question about the 1987 hub/rotor that is a 12inch or 10 inch brake?
