Re: Need help with rear disc conversion
You have c-clip axles.
First, put the rear in the air on jack stands. Remove the tires and brake drums. Pop the rear end cover off and drain the fluid. In the middle of the differential, you will see a round bar going through between where the ends of the two axles enter. Rotate until you find the small bolt going sideways through it. Loosen it and pull it back far enough so the round retainer post slides. DO NOT slide it all the way out and DO NOT rotate either axle.
With the round post pushed back, you can now push each axle in slightly and remove the C clip by sliding it out. Then you can pull each axle. The brake kit comes with a spacer that replaces the drum backing plate
With the axles out, you will see four bolts holding the drum backing plates to the axle flanges. Remove those and pull off the backing pates and shoe assemblies.
Slide the included spacer onto the axle and reinsert the axle opposite to the way you pulled it out. Reinstall the C clips and push the post back down and retighten the retaining bolt.
Once you get a look at it, it'll make sense.
