Latest video:
Converting this shortened LADA VAZ 2101 rear axle from drum to disc brakes - this axle will be used as a skid steering / brake-differential steering unit on the tracked amphibious all terrain vehicle that I'm fabricating at the moment. No welding was needed for the actual mounts of the brake supports although I managed to turn one half axle smaller in diameter than needed and had to MIG weld some steel on it and turn it again so it would fit the brake rotor of 2001 1.9 D Peugeot Partner. Brake rotors have cooling fins in them so hopefully they will not get burnt that fast when using the steering brakes on this vehicle. It was cheaper to rebuild these brakes rather than buying completely new ones. This axle & brakes unit will be coupled with tractor PTO parts to transmit power to the rear wheels that drive the tracks. By doing so I can position this differential more freely inside the tub of the tracked amphibious ATV which leaves me more options with the frame and body design. I do have the half axles I salvaged from the Peugeot Partner but I want to use one of them as a prop shaft which leaves me with only one good half axle. Also the CV joints can only be set on an angle so far and the axles can't really be modified in length that easily compared to the tractor PTO parts. Stay tuned for next video in this series next Friday same time and feel free to subscribe. Cheers!

Can always use Electrolysis for the rust in hard to get a spots. Get an old stick welder and run it around 40amps, works quite quick.

I'm a bit confused. If you weld the differential (from Ep 3), how are you going to steer unless you can decouple each track independently from the other track. Otherwise, if you brake one side you will be braking both sides through the welded differential. Maybe I'm missing something Will continue to watch and maybe it will become clear Great build!!!!!

I didn't weld the differential in episode 3. It is still an open differential.

Excessively thick caliper mounts. For example, the rear drum brakes are mounted on a 1.5 mm thick shield. like! (Излишне толстые крепления суппортов. К примеру, задние барабанные тормоза крепятся на щитке толщиной 1.5 мм. Лайк! )

Dont ever use lube when putting calipers together the lubes is for the guides use brake fluid to lube the seals bc if the grease makes it back to the master cylinder it screws it up

The first question. If you decided to use differential from LADA that why did't use front brake parts from the same car? It will make your works much easier The second question. Why you did't use differential from BMW or Audi about 1990. It would make your project much more simply and more reliably

@Donn DIY if you spend extra time on redoing, then there is not enough time for other projects. life is so short

I just had these parts at hand and available. That is the only reason. If Lada parts fail I can always redo this brake steering unit. Good point made! 😉
