front rotor diameter question

Post by garryk6 » Mon Dec 30, 2002 7:59 pm

Hi, I know this is a Roadster site, but I own a 1963 NL 320 "Sport" pickup, and was reading your tech article on the Volvo calipers. I am trying to put front disc brakes on my NL and will be using the truck rotors. What is the outside diameter on the roadster discs so I can compare to the truck rotors to see if the Volvo trick will work on my NL. Thanks for the help. V/R Garry in San Diego CA

:lol: Garry, no problem. I measured two different old rotors I have lying around and the diameter measures 11-1/8" on each of them . That should give you a good idea any way. Hope that helps.

Thanks Steve! Now on with the search for a rotor to work on my six lug hub that is a non-vented rotor.......
