Hi.

Does anyone know wirer the rear disc calipers came from? Some one suggested they are from a ford Sierra but, from the picture I can find online, the e brake assembly looks different

Cheers

Mandy

Thanks for all your replies. I will get pictures up this weekend. I bought the kit from the original Z car company about 6 years ago.I am just trying to catalog the parts that will require servicing so I know where to find things like brake pads etc. The front are wilwood. I will look up gonzo.

Cheers

I am just getting back to this project. I was distracted by very fun things like becoming a grandpa. I hope to complete this year? It should be a fun car to drive. I will get pictures up this weekend.

I was checking out some builds and after looking at Rene's build in Holland, I believe I have the same rear disc calipers as he does. My kit came in boxes with no instructions and I believe I have the calipers switched to the wrong side as my emergency cable is at the bottom and not the top as Rene has it. Does anyone recognize the caliber in his pictures?

It seems to work either way?

Cheers

Mandy

Thanks Renessy. It is interesting that yours came mounted that way. It looks like they can go either way. I chose to put them the way I have them because the bleed nipple is at the top so theoretically easier to bleed. I am in Canada and we don't have that model (ford Sierra) here. Any idea what year and model? I just wanted to know in case I need a spare set of pads or have caliber problems.  I took a bunch of pictures on my build this weekend and will post in the projects section.

Happy New Year everyone.

Mandy

Bleeding on top is better in the end. You are right on that. Anyways, it will work both ways.

 

Have no clue on what year/model etc Sierra is is. Sorry...
