I got and put on some discs for the front of the 72 today and so far it's much better, but there's a problem. It was tough getting the caliper and brake pads onto the rotor on the drivers side. I did get it on eventually, but it is very tight because of the rivets on the brake pads, they make them just that much too thick. Now the car kind of pulses on braking. I imagine it's safe this way, but still very annoying. I know it will stop when the pad wears down enough, but is there any other way to fix this????

Was the caliper centered on the rotor? When you say it is pulsing do you mean vibrating when on the brakes? If the pads are dragging the rotor it may of heated the rotor up and possibly warped it. That will cause vibration when stopping.
