Does anyone have pics of the conversion to disk brakes on a '76 or earlier 620? I am about to the point of upgrading Pa's Truck to something less scary.  Truth being my daily drive has 4 wheel disks and my reflexes and timing have to make a huge adjustment on quick stops.
 
Also, anyone have the list of junkyard parts plus the adapter to make the conversion.  Any info will be much appreciated.

Don't do just the brackets.   Do a ball joint conversion THEN and only then, run d21 spindles.  By using the d21 spindles you can utilize the factory nissan bolting location for the d21 calipers.  This option is much safer and better designed than just the brackets alone.  I have the brackets and they work but they are more of a temporary solution.  The ball joints are a MAJOR upgrade over the kingpin.
