Caliper question

I impulsively went another way. Long story short I ended up on the beach on the 4th with friends and some guy talking about his beat to shit Jeep that he drove out there. I went by boat but wanted my 110 which is in the garage with spongy brakes and I started to get anxiety about not driving this thing. I found a Disco 1 rear online with only 82k miles for $300 5 miles from my place. Took it home, stripped all the stuff I don't need, hit it with POR 15 tonight, getting new rotors, pads and HD flanges delivered tomorrow. Hope to slam it in by next Friday. I've been reading the rear axle swap posts here but anyone know what to do with the sensors in the second pic? Just cut the wire?

Those are ABS sensors. You don’t need them. You need a new longer prop shaft, you need to convert the flange to 4 bolt, and you will want to move the spring perches outboard If I remember correctly.

also, you don’t want a disco rear axle in a 110 …. On the plus side, those hubs and Stub axles will work great to convert your sals.

If it gets my truck on the beach by next weekend, its going in. I'll keep the Sals and build it over time.

Good luck. I would pull the sensors out and find plugs to go in. They can be annoying as they are magnets.

I would remove the sensor completely and tap the sleeve that it sits in flush. There are gaskets that will cover the hole

If I recall the little pilot that sticks out of the three-prong flange for the guibo drive shaft is threaded on the inside. You should be able to thread a metric 8 bolt down inside of there and it should push out. Usually they are rusted or seized in place. I had to use a torch and a slide hammer to remove mine.

Before you make this axle pretty, I would try and remove that thing It can be a huge bitch.

Agreed, that's my project tonight. I'm going to try The M8/1.25 bolt through a huge socket with washer trick - after heat of course.

Done. I found an old school 4x4 hub socket at Autobarn, 4" m8 bolt , heat, and pipe wrench. This socket is also the perfect size to install the new seal.
