Filled the diff with oil, and rear beam and centre mount bolted on.
Rear arms are at the machine shop getting the bearings and hubs pressed in, also having some M6 holes drilled and tapped to fix the disc splash plate, as I didn’t have them already.
Got the brake pipes and brake bias valve fitted on the rear beam, and the Diff bracket bolted onto car. The rear arms are now ready for me to collect with all the hubs ect pressed in and splash guards fitted, should be collecting Monday…
Disc brake lovely-ness.. meant to post this Sunday, but I seem to have been taken out by food poisoning.. family get togethers eh! Anyway after a 14hr sleep I seem to not need a bucket.. anyway, I digress..
Splash guards/discs and carriers working in perfect harmony 😁
Only slight hiccup is I must have ordered the ‘upgraded discs’ that need a small spacer between the carrier and arm. Luckily I have lots of that type of thing. Only thing now is the mounting bolts are too short at 20mm, need to be 25mm. Might have to buy some MK4 golf ones @ 30mm and cut them down. If anyone has a part number to a bolt that is the right length to start with, im all ears!
Plus a less sexy but just as important shot of the new studs in the cat converter
Yep that’s were I got most of the info to do this 😄 apart from the splash guards which ingot from another thread. Couldn’t see any mention of different caliper carrier bolts though? I’ll likely cut down some MK4 ones, as they have the ‘shoulder’ on them.
I seem to remember that I used the original bolts, however it was a very long time ago so I can’t say with any certaincy
bnw if you wish to add the part numbers etc of the new backplate(s) to my original thread I would be very grateful as the originals are no longer available
