Here is the finished product. Not sure if I will need wheel spacers yet. I will work on that next weekend.61676168616961716172

I guess since my Patrol does not run I should start working on that frist! haha. I tore down the replacement engine for inspection, It is also a 1967 engine about 90 numbers away from my correct incomplete engine. 620762086209
My original engine has sat many years open and even without having pistons in it it will not turn over. 5549

do you think you'd be able/kind enough to post a "final" parts list of all that you used to do this? rotor part numbers, caliper part numbers, steel stock sizes for custom bracket, etc...would be much appreciated!

I think I posted most of the details in prior postings. i know the size of metal was given as 6X7X5/8, i started out with 7/8 but by the time I was finished on 5/8 was needed. I did not post part numbers as they are always different depending on who you by them from. I used a pair of calipers I had on the shelf for a 1993 Toyota 4Runner and the rotors are from 2002 Rodeo. I have been working on trans and transfer case and about to start on engine. Axles will be after that.
