My Elf has been fitted with Metro 4 pot brakes. I have read the thread in FAQ on Metro Turbo brakes, but see I cannot reply on there.

It looks like I have the Metro hubs fitted also. It has been said I should use the Mini Steering arms.
How can I tell which steering arms have been fitted? Is there a part numbers cast into these arms?

Post up a picture then we will know exactly what you have. Part numbers can be found on the mini spares pages.

Nick, not sure if these help. There is writing on the top of the arm, I thought it was a number but after scraping the top, it looks like it is MOWOG.

Personally I would just bin the hubs and fit the brake assy onto the Mini ones. Then you will bring the KPI and scrub back to normal.

 

that looks like a Metro steering arm.

Here is the part number on the steering arm. It is not that clear.

The hubs on the car are early Metro as I changed one ball joint and bought the wrong one initially.

i have read somewhere that if Metro hubs are used on a Mini then the steering arm needs changing for Minis ones.

There appears to be 2 arms listed for the Mini and am not sure which one I need.

The disc brake set up was already fitted to my Elf when I bought it. I am trying to get the car running and back on the road. So far I have spent far too much money on it and would like to try to keep further expenditure down if possible.

The Mini steering arms were made more substantial on the Cooper S.

 

Metro arms differ from Mini arms and give a different steering ratio.
