and the newer year. I know I know but its the truth!!! Check the parts 
books. I forget the correct way they go but I take the one out and bring 
it with me to the parts man. I do this every time or he will give me the 
smaller holed rotor. I have an 86 5ktq and a 4ksq. The 4ksq is the right 
rotor for the 5ktq.
