Just to confirm that the hubs I should get for this are P/N FTC860, I noticed Paddocks has some for 20GBP each and I have some other things to order from them this week as well so figured I might as well start putting parts on the shelf.

I'm not sure if these will work... I used the earlier hubs, FRC6139 on mine.

Those later ones are the thinner type as per 300Tdi/Td5 (and early 200Tdi, which is where the FTC860 comes from)

I'm finally getting around to posting pix from my conversion. I followed the same formula as outlined by Overlander at the beginning of this thread and I owe big thanks to Keith at Rover Tracks for masterminding this set-up and being the source of the machined caliper mounting brackets.

Cost for this wasn't too great all things considered:
Caliper brackets - under 200, machined
Calipers - free from my stash
New rotors and pads - 150-ish
4 Timken Set 37 wheel bearings - 60
RRC non-abs hubs - free in trade from Evil Ron

Even if you don't have a stash of some of the correct parts, this conversion shouldn't cost more than 1000 bucks, maybe slightly over if you bought all new OEM hubs etc.

Anyway, I'll let the pix speak for themselves. This isn't a step-by-step, but should allow you to get a good visual of how everything comes apart and bolts up.

Salsibury disc conversion questions

Can I buy the newer shafts and use ABS hubs and not machine my brackets?

Salisbury ABS hubs ? Normal hubs don't fit salisbury shafts- @ least doesn't look like they would.

RN has the abs style salisbury shafts on sale, I was thinking of buying them and using whatever hubs go with them and not machining the brackets.

You will need the hubs, stubs, axles and caliper brackets. Of course rotors and caliper too.

Disco hubs are the same and the rotors and calipers from that same Disco should line up.

ok, so I can bolt all the stuff from a disco I onto the end of the axle (with brackets) and then buy new shafts from an ABS truck? Are the axles on the ABS one the "thin" flange?

Will the rear hubs from a D90 work for this conversion? Previous posts seem to indicate using RRC hubs. I have a 90 axle that I want to rob the parts from...

Just an FYI if you use the RRC hubs - early RRC non-abs hubs have 3/8-18 drive flange bolts and the M10 1.5s will not work. I stumbled upon this discrepancy and Keith squared me away. If that piece of info is in this thread, I keep not seeing it when I read it over.

I am glad I found this. This is definitely a wise upgrade for the 130.

I may have skimmed over it, but I'm confused on whether the orignal axle shafts can be re-used.

No change in my axle shafts or drive hub when I did this.

Will I need to get new Stub Axles to do this conversion on a 1983 110, with a Salisbury?

Only 83's and early 84's have a different stub axle which has the bearing diameter all the way to the thread for the hub nuts, if your stubs have about a 3/8-1/2" unthreaded step just past the hub nut threads (towards the middle of the car) you're in good shape. If you don't have the step a set of front pre 1994 hubs are a direct fit but rather rare. Unless you put Disco hubs and stubs on the front to accomidate upgraded CV's and axles, then you can use the takeoffs.

Nope, the Salisbury stubs pilot on teh outside diameter of the flange on the axle, Rovertypes aside from very early RRC's pilot on the inside diameter.
