tercel rear disk brake swap


hi there, as a newbe i'm really interested in the rear disk setup( i hate working on drums) what size are the starlet disks? and the size of the piston in the caliper? i made a set of rear disks for my 66 plymouth satellite and would like to try doing a set for the tercel. there must be a hub rotor out there thats close to fitting. i like the mr2 hybred set but was really thinking along the lines of the stock starlet size for a daily driver. thanks for any info. ron

Problem is there isn't a hub there, there's a spindle which is part of the trailing beam, and the wheel bearing/disc/wheel studs are all one piece that sit on that spindle... the closest thing I know of is a Mk.II Golf, unless you want to get into cutting/welding the trailing beam to take a hub off whatever car...

i found a hub/rotor with the same size i/d on the bearings and i'm going to pick up a spare rear axle this afternoon to try it on. its about 3/4'' taller than the drum so it might hit the boss that the backing plate attaches to. i tried to post a pic but i'm not sure if its going to work. i'll keep you posted. ron

got the axle and the sucker fits,same bearing size inner and outer,4x100 and the wheel studs are the same thread. would have to take the cones out and have them machined in about .25 to make up for the height difference and take the wheel register down a hair to get to the right size. the caliper is just a spare that i threw on for :censored:es and giggles.got another hub thet i want to try but i've got to find the right inner bearing for it.might work out. ron

picked up a disk for an 86 jetta(if you cross reference it fits on a pile of different vdubs) and its a much better fit. same outer bearing as the tercel, inner bearing and seal is from a 72 dodge dart 9" front drum. needs a few small mods... 1 turn the outer register down to match the tercel and 2 a small spacer to move the hub out about 4 to 5 mm. the vdubs use screw in bolts to hold the rim on but there's enough meat in the rotor to have the threads drilled out and replaced with lugs. cost so far about $50.00 cdn. going to get a spacer machined this coming week and try a caliper from a ford focus on the rotor(same brake fitting size and easy to find.) are we having fun yet?
