    Does anyone know what vehicle Pete and Jakes Ford bolt pattern rotors are from ?
    I need one in a hurry and it would be nice to know what they were off of.
    Thank you for any input. 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern, 11 inch rotor.

    It helps a lot if you give us a part number and application. That is about as vague a question as one can come up with.

    If I had the part number or application I could cross it over myself. This is one of their complete front end kits. Someone from out of town needs to get back on the road and I was hoping they just used an off the shelf part for their front end kits. I know the calipers are GM intermediate 78-85.

    Is a one piece hub and rotor or does the rotor bolt to the hub?

    This a one piece rotor. It looks like it might be a custom rotor like Heidt's had for their Mustang II setup.

    Assuming you have the rotor off is there an adapter pressed on the spindle for a different inner wheel bearing? If so you might try matching the rotor up to a ‘70’s Dodge Aspen.

    And this is the exact reason I use as much stock/oem parts as possible on customers cars and my own builds.

    Sure the caliper doesn't say heidt's on it or any others name but neither does the cost or its availability.

    I don't do names on my builds it I don't have too.. Don't do designer shirts or pants either !! Lol

    You didn't mention if this is a relatively recent disc brake setup, or if it's older. The reason I question that is years ago it seemed that some used Plymouth Volare or maybe Volvo hubs/rotors. Sorry I don't have any specifics and it might be that my memory is failing me all together.

    He says the build is about 5 years old. I remember using Volvo 122s rotors back in the 70's, and Volare rotors in the 90's. This could be a Volare rotor that they sell. Thank you for the tip.

    I have the same setup on my 34 Ford and their Mopar Rotors off of Diplomats in the 80's...Lot of Mopars used this rotor from 1973 to 85
