Re: Better fit for disc brake conversion
I would go with the LTD personally. I copied this from one of a previous post for a quick reference regarding spindle/rotor interchange for a 70 LTD brake setup.
Rotor part #'s
"AIMCO Ref. 5405, Bendix Ref. 141016, Midas Ref. BR1033, Raybestos Ref. 6014, Wagner Ref. 60214. These rotor part numbers are for an 11 3/4" front rotor on the following models/years.
1970-1972 Ford Country Sedan / Squire / Ranch Wagon
1970-1972 Ford Custom / Custom 500 / Galaxie 500 / LTD
1970-1971 Ford Thunderbird
1970-1972 Lincoln Continental
1970-1971 Lincoln Mark III
1970-1972 Mercury Colony Park / Marauder / Marquis / Monterey
MP Brakes uses theese same spindles as the models/years listed above as well for thier conversion kit. There is also a tech article on this site called "Why settle for 11?... when you can have 12" that pretty much covered a rotor upgrade, but you could also use the info to upgrade from drum to disk for alot less then a "kit"
65 Galaxie 500 XL, 351W/C4
