Disc brake conversion question
So I got the donor axle out of a 78 that turns out to be the 7/8" rotors. Just about everything comes off smoothly except for the spindles that are like welded on from 30 years of rust. Been soaking them with pb with no luck so far. Now I'm wondering if my wheels are going to clear the rotors. I have the big drums on the front. What do guys think? Is this a great forum with priceless information or what?

There IS a difference between drum brake wheels and disc brake wheels. You might get lucky with '78 since it was a transition year for Jeep, but then again, you may not. You'll have to try them out.
