    If you have access to a lathe or engineer you can unbolt the mo stub axle and machine the stub to accept a ford capri mk1-3 {not 3l. hub then use the discs and caliper on a new bracket.
    Failing that you could make sure all the shoes and cylinders are in a serviceable condition and add a remote servo, that should stop then.
