Pair of E-series Van dual caliper disc brake brackets to convert OBS 10.25 to Disc Brakes and retain parking brake feature

I was going to do a rear disc brake conversion on my F250 but decided otherwise.
I'd recommend searching google for "Fordmann" to find a writeup that uses these components

In good condition, no surprises.
Pictures make the rust look worse than it is. Sandblasting or wire wheel would clean these up.

Includes everything pictured:
2 - Primary Brackets with mounting studs and locknuts
2 - Axle Flange 3.5" Diameter hole, weld material removed and tube pressed out
2 - Caliper Mounting brackets with associated bolts
Parking brake hardware, for looped end cable, as unassembled, shoes are shot.

$150 + $30 shipping

What is all needed to finish the conversion? discs, calipers, pads, and lines?

E-brake cables and e-brake shoes too.

Yeah, this is just the parts that aren't available off the shelf.

Also, the user "Peroni" on another Powerstroke site had done this swap and has an excellent writeup.

Do you know if the flange is the same size as the sterling axle?

Just wondering if you still have them because this deal may be pretty hard to pass up.

The flange is different. Cut off old one and reweld these flanges on.
Diameter is the same as a 10.25 Axle

This guys writeup is a great example

Peroni's Write-Up
He got a bit more involved like a proper Machinist would

Any chance you could locate another set? I've got no way to machine the flange off and would have purchased them the first time I posted lol.

One thing is for sure, there is a lot of weld penetration. I had a bit of time into turning the weld off and quite a bit of pressure on the press to break them free.

I come acrost them occaisionly at the yard, but it's too much work to be profitable.
I pretty much sold these at a loss since I was intending to use them.

Yeah I figured that much. Well thanks for that bit of info. I can't get anyone to turn lose of them from their axles.

What made you change you mind having gone that far?

I was getting over my head with modifications, and I want a decent parking brake that the drums offer.
