Trying to figure out if I have "small or large" bearings on my front end. 67 Galaxie 500, 289 engine.
I need the info for my front disc brake conversion, not sure how to tell.
Thanks for any info.

Hey Scott,
Wildo directed me to the Tech Tab above and then to Brakes tab and a story about Disc brake conversions that listed the bearing sizes and all of the info one would need about "stock" Ford parts for the swap to 11" or 12" 5 x 5 or 5 x 4 1/2 disc and rotor setup. It's on page 3 but the whole article is good!

Sweet, thanks all.
I missed that article on the brakes.
Seems like all the 5 on 5 bolt patterns are large bearing, and 5 on 4.5" are small bearing.
Thanks again all!
