Stock caliper brackets are 1/2" thick.... or 3/8" brake plate plus a 1/8" spacer for the adjustment/offset.

But would spindle depth change the hub to spindle relation? sounds like that still wouldnt be the problem, even if it werent right.

that has nothing to do with my problem. Even if my axle shafts were 40' long and splined, I couldn't get my lockout in because it hits the spindle.

Yes, if I make the bearing mating surface of the spindle 3/8" out further, it should in theory make the spindle recess the same distance into the hub.

But then your brake caliper to rotor would be off 3/8". Does it line up right now?

Sorry, I was correcting Skooter_built that the stock caliper brackets are thicker than 1/4".

In my 78-79 ford 60, there aren't any spacers on the spindle. Only thing that is technically a spacer is the caliper bracket that is between the knuckle and spindle.

If it came out of a driving vehicle, then I doubt they are mis-matched but might be worth checking since 3/8" is real close to the diff between the chevy and ford versions. I wasn't sure if you got it as a pile of parts or complete axle.

Have you tried rebuilding with stock outers and hubs? Does it work? If you don't have any, I have a spare set that you could use for mockup.

you have something in backwards.
if it is hitting the spindle your bearings are too small,means your caliper is going back too far.
your caliper bracket is on wrong.
you said you tried a stock lockout so it is not the lockout...
check were the caliper bracket goes into the spindle and make sure there is no bur there not letting the two seat together properly.
that is all that i can think wrong..is both sides doing this or just one?

Does the heat shield go in between the brake bracket and the spindle?

you could make a spacer and put it there to get the clearance you need. drill the 8 hols and make it out of some tin or anything you have laying around that would act as a spacer.

Sorry- but I've never had that 18 gauge heat shield even make any difference. I always take that rotted-out mud catcher out and have never had 1 bit of an issue.

2 more thoughts... Wrong application lock-outs or maybe your hubs were switched out with chevy or dodge ones with a different offset????

I'd also check the D 60 bible on Pirate and get some dimentions/POI's on the componants that you are using. Something is off a little weather it was your fault or the last guys- (and I'm betting that someone did a brake change without letting you know about it.....)

OK- There's 5/8" difference in the length of the chevy vs. ford outer stubs and hub assemblies.
I would dare say that you have the longer Chevy stubs on there. Nothing else makes any sense except maybe wrong lock-outs. I'll keep checking to see if there's anything else that sticks out......
