Default "Easy" axle swap for a 1965 Internation 1/2 ton 4x4?

I've got a friend at work who's getting an old international truck, just to be a tinkering project / farm truck, not to be offroaded in anyway.

He's looking into swapping to front discs, and kit prices are $$$$. I figured swapping in a later front, or matching pair (I don't know if his would be the weird big bolt pattern on some of the IHs, or something like a 5 on 5.5) might be a better path, than putting money into the closed knuckle front.

Any IH guys happen to know if a later gen IH dana 44, or some other front would more or less bolt up? Don't remember the spring spacing for Internationals. Would figure a 74+ disc brake axle would be a candidate.
