    Nice!
    I a looked at VW stuff. They might work. Also 87-88 corvette has finned aluminum calipers.

    I wonder if rotorbrake pads off a Sikorsky helicopter will work in an airheart brake? They look to be the same size and shape.
     
  2. Those Super Bell hubs show up occasionally on E-***.
    I have a pair of new rotors if you need them.

    FWIW, those black calipers on the Willys axle look like Volvo to me.

    Don't know about those particular hubs, though.
    142 hubs bolt to early Ford spindles with a spacer and bearing mix. I've been running them since 1987. Cheap enuff.
