Rockwell Brakes....Help!

I'm getting to the finish touches on my long time build. I picked up the axles 2nd hand with brake kits from BTF and other parts with the purchase. I'm needing some advice on the brakes. Does anyone have any info or pics of their brakes using BTF brackets? How do they mount so to allow room to mount the caliper between the yoke mount? I have removed the yoke mount and know they bolt to the 6 bolts around the yoke but they don't line up. When they do line up there is no way to use those 2 holes to mount the caliper due to space. Any help/ advice/ pics would be great help. Brakes, driveshafts tomorrow, and find the proper intake adapter and I'm done.

On my brakets, they can only be mounted to the outside. the 6 bolts are NOT spaced the same. make sure you dont have your braket upside down. ill get some pics later

This si the rear. notice how it would only mount on the outside

Heres the backside, you can mount the braket upside dwon and it wont work

Heres my front. now i had to make my own braket for this one to mount it at an angle to clear the leaf

Darryl, use the spacers provided in the kit. the hub goes on first, use the 1 bolt that doesnt hold the brake caliper on to hold the hub in place. the brake will bolt up on the outside of the chunk i.e. away from the meat at an angle. BTW we used one of the spacers on the steering the other night.
