Im thinking of buying a late 70's F-250 to swap the discs to my 1970 F-100. I read that the F-250 parts from a pre 79 will work, but the problem is that the F-250 uses 8 lug rims. Can it be converted to 5 lug. Are the rotors the same or am I SOL?

I think it's a go,but not sure. Is this 2WD or 4WD? I think the 4WD's are the same.

Why not locate a 1973-1979 F-150 with 5 lug rotors? You need to swap spindles, rotors and dual (disc/drum) master cylinder. This swap works all the way back to 1965 twin I-beams.

Yeah, I am still looking. It was just a good price and came with a 460, but I really want to keep the 5 lug pattern that all my Ford and Mopar stuff uses.

Thanks.

Those parts are plentiful and should be cheap.
