Ah, nuts. I should know better than to trust my 50+ year old memory.
It's been so long since I replaced my rotors, I forgot that I did
have to remove the rotor from the hub. Forget what I said earlier.
I'll go back to sitting in the corner with my dunce cap on.

I drilled four holes in my workbench to match the lug bolt patternced
hub with the lug bolts downwards, which left the rotor flat and
There are four bolts which hold the rotor to the backside of the hub.
Because the work bench prevents the hub/rotor from turning, I was able
remove and re-install a new rotor to the \hub.

You may already have received an answer to your question, but in case
The rotor and the hub are cast in one piece on the Spitfire. You won't
be able to separate them. Unlike many of the newer cars.
