Metro Turbo Brake Conversion
Posted 16 November 2006 - 09:58 AM
This pipe kit is for converting Metro 4 pot callipers with dual feed pipes to a single feed as used on minis.
It is necessary however, to check that this is permitted by the legislation in the country in which the vehicle is to used.
To ensure maximum pipe clearances, the main feed pipe should be screwed into the lower of the feed holes, through one end of the link pipe. The other end of the link pipe should then be connected to the calliper by one of the banjo bolts provided. Ensure a copper washer is fitted on either side of the banjos to effect a fluid tight seal. The link pipe should be curved towards the front of the calliper (away from the calliper to the hub mounting bolts). The end of the feed pipe with the large union can be connected to the subframe in the usual way.

Mini-Metro Hoses including banjo bolts and washers.
Drive flange and disk from a metro
Metro 4 pot calipers
ERA turbo caliper bolts
What about the drive shaft? Which one/either?
Thanks for all the help so far, Tom

Also, be aware that you can get two types of caliper, ones for vented and non vented discs, so you obviously have to use the appropriate disc for the type you get.
