Wanting to keep the 6 bolt hub look

I'm working on a 1968 C/10 Panel Truck that has had the drum brake front suspension swapped out with a 1974 C/10 disc brake power steering front suspension. I would like to swap the 1974 5 bolt hubs back to the 1968 6 bolt hubs and am wondering if anyone has done this and what parts would fit?
Thank you!

I don't remember who but someone makes six lug rotors ... Is that what you are thinking?

I got a pair from Mcgaughys in 2003. I think they still sell them. I believe other vendors may have them as well.

Re: Wanting to keep the 6 bolt hub look

I installed a front disk brake kit on my 67 Burb. The kit from Classic Performance Products uses 1971 to 87 C10 components. I selected to go with the 6-bolt rotors because my rear axle is 6-bolt. The rotors I have are probably exactly the ones that you need.

Thank you all! I have ordered a kit from Mcgaughys.
I'll post pics as soon as I receive them and get them installed!

Did you keep the old drum brake metal lines? Any chance you have photos of how the rubber hose looks from behind?

I used the original steel brake lines, but needed adapters to fit the hose fittings.

I just noticed your location - I bought The Burb in Saskatoon.

Re: Wanting to keep the 6 bolt hub look

Not absolutely sure of the year on this front end, it's the one I removed from a 68 Panel Truck I'm working on. Not sure because this truck has had the front half of it's frame replaced at some point.
But here are the pics of the brake lines/ hoses.

Re: Wanting to keep the 6 bolt hub look

I bought the complete McGagheys kit. Spindles and brake. It came with the brake hoses. Sounds like yours already has that stuff that works (the later model lines were possibly swapped in with the crossmember ) . You should be able to swap rotors (with new pads) and be good to go. If you get McGaghey's spindles, you'll need to know what ball joints you have or replace with what fits the spindle.

I bought a six lug front conversion kit from performance online. It came with Wilwood calipers and cross drilled slotted rotors.
