    Im looking around and reading and it aprears the dually rear has no brake kits,


    so..


    could I put standard 14 bolt hubs on this and use a 14 bolt kit?

    and why wont kerts or others single rear wheel kits work on a dual wheel 70?

    I would just look , but my 70 is still 2 hours away:D

    It's the dual wheel that causes problems. If your not going to run dual wheels, Then our d70 kit should work. Haven't set it up but I see no reason it shouldn't.

    There may also be a chance we could set up something a bit more custom.

    I just picked up a Dually D70 with the 14bolt hubs and it came with Kurts D70 brake brackets, just need some time to get back in the garage to work on it. I would like to see some pics of this setup!
    I have the 3/4ton front rotors, need to find a set of calipers.

    (this is the axle BlueBlazer62 started, sold to Emmet, then I picked it up...)

    In the mid-90's I disc'd an Eaton in my C30 carhauler. I had a friend turn some 3" spacers to move my rotors inboard far enough to clear the duallie rims and bolted some 3/4 ton 4x4 front backing plates to the axle. My dad disc'd a 70hd by bolting some Dodge? front dual wheel spacers to move the wheels outboard. His truckbed is more than a foot wider than mine, tho.

    Kert, please look into this seriously. I think there are enough of us here on CK5 that want to do this to D70HDs, that it would be profitable. The one stumbling block is that most/all of us are looking for a larger caliper/disc pad than the 3/4 ton caliper.
    Thanks, Jimbo

    Just knee jerk reaction, please review for feasibility but could an adapter be machined that would allow you to use the caliper mount, calipers & rotors of a D60 front? Something that bolts to the backing plate mount and then to the caliper mount with the appropriate spacing and what not.

    I dont know how plentiful the caliper mounts are though. :dunno:

    I always come up with great ideas after somebody else already invented it. It's really frustrating...
