How do I metro 4 pots on solid mini disks.
Posted 01 November 2004 - 02:54 AM
I have got some metro 4 pot callipers. I hear it is possible to put metro 4 pots on normal 8.4 solid disks on mini hubs. If so, how?

They have a spacer between the two halves of the caliper, which make the gap wide enough to fit the vented disks, one assumes if you remove the spacer then they will fit a standard non-vented disk... also I think you need the caliper bolts which were fitted to the ERA turbo, as that used the metro 4 pots on mini hubs..

If you've already got the vented calipers then it would probably be easier to use vented disks as the early metro calipers are like hens teeth!

DO NOT split the caliper to remove the spacer

To convert you will need to retain the Metro Calipers, disks and drive flanges, and the remaining parts are the minis (including the hubs).
The difference between the bolts is that the Mini ones are Imperial in diameter with an UNF thread, where as the Metro's are Metric, the ERA bolts are Metric in diameter with an UNF thread tapped...
