Hello !
For the installation of 13" Vette brakes on my 69`Camaro I need self made brackets.
For the upper bolt of the spindle I need a longer bolt because I want to use a spacer between spindle and the new bracket (The two bolts of the original bracket donīt have the same level).
I think it is a 5/8" x 18 UNF.
Anybody who knows this exactly ?

Thanks for any help !

Try a Grade-8, 1.50"L x 9/16" UNF fine thread bolt cut down to something like 1.25" to 1.375".. Check and make sure before you cut it for final length. You might have to thin the hex head of it if it gets too close to the rotor face. A stock bolt is already thinned but too short. pdq67

PDQ, I used the stock bolt by grinding and making it flat and that was fine with a 1/4 adapter bracket

I did some measurements again and I still believe itīs a 5/8" X 18 UNF.
So I ordered these type here in Germany. (Very difficult to find a manufacturer).
So the next part are the brackets for the PBR calibers.
