    14SF axle tube\"flange pattern\"?

    Anyone happen to know, or can find out, if say an '88 14SF and a 2000 14SF share the same pattern that the brake backing plate/disk bracket bolts to, and if there is a known difference between that pattern for disk or drum brake setups?

    I know the later 8.5" pattern changed in that time frame (bolt spacing was increased slightly, axle flange was rotated about 45*) so a disk brake swap from a 2000 8.5" to 1986 8.5" isn't a bolt and go affair, but if you can buy a 1988 6 lug 14SF, and the disk brakes off of an 8 lug 2000 14SF, and bolt them on, it could simplify a great disk swap.
    (at least for me, who won't ever need a 14FF, but wants disks, my 6 lug wheels, and wants something better than the 8.5", cheap /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif )
