I , starting to try and find out all the parts I nedd and where to get them for my Truck. I know it has a 350 Chevy motor, a turbo 350 trans, a ford nine inch rear end, and front disk brakes of a 1976 Chevy luv truck. Driven it a little bit, then put a set of points and condenser in the distributor. I will be changing the distributor later for a MSD small cap model, and a MSD box.
I went to my local parts stores. Neither the Auto Zone, Discount, or Orielys carry a rebuilt caliper to replace the frozen one on the drivers side. I did see a codine unit at summit that seems to be about two weeks off to get here. I will post some pictures when I get the resizing thing figured out.

You can find a good amount of parts on ebay. On the brake caliper, I took my old ones to a NAPA store and had them send them to their rebuild center. It was Cardone that did the work and I found them on line and through ebay also. And they were cheaper than NAPA. So do a little research and you can find them cheaper.

The breaks that are on it, at this time, are from a 1976 Luv according to the numbers on the parts.

Nice looking LUV. Like the color. I put the Ford 8.8 with posi in mine with custom axles drilled for Chevy 5 lug and redrilled the front for the same. I have a '72, came with front discs that were swapped no telling when. I just did the install 10 months ago so everything is new.

It centers well on the rotor. The brake fitting is however in a different location then the old one.

You need to use the bolt from the old caliper, as the one that comes with the 1982 Isuzu one is longer, and has a smaller hole then the one for the Chevy luv.

I went to work on the passenger side breaks, and noticed the mud control flap on the inner fender was melted. I am guessing it gets a little hot down there.
