Rear Axle disc Brakes

Axles are apart to put disc brakes on the rear salisbury.

Doing all new bearings and seals, there sure are a lot.

The front will be DiscoI: Hubs, stubs, axles, CVs, and Diff

On the rear I will be able to use the existing stubs, the 1983 110 front hubs, disco I rear Calipers and rotors+caliper brackets (3306)


Lots of crap in the axle, a bit concerned.

Turbo is on its way to be rebuilt at:

Did they give you a quote on the rebuild?

Axle crapola

This crap came out of the rear axle?

It was like a lite film of rust.

Tom

I've had several axles in that condition, in both instances I made a long handled wire brush and completely cleaned out the axle tubes and housing. I then flushed with a can or tow of brake cleaner followed by a swab with a rag wrapped around another long handle. I changed the diff plugs for magnetic ones and haven't had a problem with either one. Once you get the majority of that stuff out and start running it the inside of the axle should not continue to rust.

Many Thanks, I did start to do some of that.
I used a brush handle and a rag. I'll hit it with some break cleaner today

It should be ok. Dom ran his sals with only water in it for several thousand miles off road and it was fine.

Brakes (new rotors) and Rebuilt Turbo

I got some new Brembo rotors and everything seems to be working.

I have fitted the Disco I Calipers and the 110 calipers on the front end and they both seem to be working.

I assume the 110 calipers would be preferable?

On the front, I did end up using the original housing with all Disco I innards, Disco I, hubs/rotors/stubs/axles/ diff. Fixed the problem with the short Diff studs by stealing them from my old 10 spline axle housing.

On the back I used the 1983 110 front hubs w/ Disco I rotors, and Disco I Calipers.

Axles stayed the same in the back.

Turbo came out very nice, and there seems to less shaft play.

I am not sure there is much difference between disco I and 110 front calipers. I would use whatever is in better condition.

The only things I can think of that might be different is the piston size (I think they are the same) and the hardware. It is not like a NAS D90 caliper where it is for a vented rotor.

I have the disco 1 calipers on my 90. They were by all appearances identical to the (presumably) 90 calipers that were on the car when it came over from the UK. I have compared what I have to standard 110 calipers and by outward appearance they are totally different. The 110 calipers are bigger and the brake line goes in @ a different location I think in the center of the caliper.

110 is visibly larger caliper by a good bit. Bigger always better with brakes.

They are bigger, and the brake lines match up perfect to the 11o lines i got from Classic tube.

Today I broke out the old fish scale and did the swivel preload, not as bad as I thought it would be. Would probably have been easier if i bought the new shim kit george sells.

does anyone know if the top swivel mount bolts need lock tight? the manual says the bottom 2 do, but doesnt say anything about the top 2?

I did. It came yesterday, but I have not opened it.

Thanks again.

I bet that bulkhead can be fixed pretty easily as the pillars are sold as replacement parts.
