Today i was finally able to get the white elephant out of the garage so i'll have space to work. First thing i did is to lay down some cardboard on the ground and place the axle housing on it after looking at it i know the brake discs will hang lower then it so i put it on some wooden blocks. Then i slide the axles in and placed the brake calipers, this show me what to do next, the easiest way is just to make a thick bracket and weld it to the axle housing, the caliper mount is so offset that i don't have a straight shot to the bearing flange and making an offset bracket is a hassle. So i made a CAD prototype bracket and test fitted it, next i'll make one of thin aluminium to make sure it fits well and then i'll make them from some 1/2 plate. Can't wait to have the little niva back on the road.
