Someone with 126 paper manuals, help

I'm reading through my manuals preparing for my upcoming suspension/brake job. Thing is, I can't find anything regarding a brake job! There's everything from bleeding to removing and checking all sorts of parts, but nothing to do with pads, calipers and discs. On one part it says "Remove brake disc from hub (42-220)"....which I assume pertains to what I am talking about. Well from what I can see, there is no 220 under section 42! Am I missing something??

To remove the brake disk fro the hub, you have to remove the grease cap, loosen the allen screw holding tension on the axel nut, remove the nut, and remove the hub (careful with those bearings and seals if you intend to reuse...I would replace).

With the hub comes the rotor (brake disk). You seperate the two by unscrewing the bolts from the back side of the hub. To ease this job, I HIGHLY recommend some penetrating oil and that you bolt a wheel back onto the hub for leverage.

It's not that bad of a job if you mount the wheel back to the hub.

What's the torque spec on the axle nut? Is it crucial to check bearing end play? I did find that in the manual. Also, if the bearings are nice and shiny and I repack, is there really any reason to replace them?

I'm still curious where the MIA part of my service manuals is!!
