    5 stud Hubs on Cortina uprights

    Swapping the Cortina front into my Zephyr left me with the perrenial problem of 4 stud hubs & 5 stud wheels . I figured I could do with some bigger brakes than what the Cortina had to offer too , So I bought a Speedway brake kit via Langy's Rod shop :-

    basically a pair of 11" rotors with Ford 5 stud pattern & a pair of 2.5" GM calipers with pads , bolts & brackets. It was designed to fit Mustang 2 spindles so the brackets went in the bin & the measuring tackle was dug out. First up I got Whidewhites to spin me up some bearing adapters (Thanks Gary)

    Then I got a couple of caliper brackets lasered up & tapped to take the slide bolts :-

    Then bolted it all together :-

    Pretty straight forward. I now have big brakes , big calipers & 5 stud hubs on my Cortina stubs. Just need to road test them now.
    No longer selling anything Hot Rod related. Not on this site anyway. Don't bother searching Ebay either, they got too greedy.........
