Doing a brake job on my 85. Never did a 4 wheel and the book is vague on the rotor removal. Any hints as to rotor removal would be appreciated

first remove the 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on. hang that somewhere out of the way. After that start taking apart the center hub assembly. You will need snap ring plyers. Once you get down to a solid sheet of metal ring around the spline, that just pulls off easily with a magnet or pulling it off.(held by grease) Then you will need to find 3 cross tip screws(might not have all 3) and remove them. Choose a hole and put a screw driver in one and tap in the counter clockwise direction to unscrew the threaded plate holding the bearings tight. When that is off then you can just pull the whole rotor and bearings out/off the shaft. Now there are bolts holding the rotor to the plate holding the studs. you get to them from the back.
There you go.

I'd guess you took both off and had no reference to go together. The rotors are not that bad. I think I'll just put on the new calipers and pads.
