I just bought the wagon calipers because they were cheaper and looked beefier...    :rofl:


It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

I was just looking at RA.....when you click on the part number to see which other vehicles it fits, it doesn't say if it works with sedan, wagon or diesel....it says see catalog for application.  Since this is the case, I think Morrisun is right.....one application listing will help eliminate any confusion.  I've changed it on the site already.  Thanks guys!!

I have a question about this swap. Can I ask it here or should I start a new thread?


Rear Wheel Drive, the way God intended.
If a car is being pulled from the front, doesn't that mean it's being towed?

Alright, I'm just gonna ask.

 

I used this thread and the wiki on 1200.com to figure out what parts I needed for my swap. Everything looks good but when I went to install the S13 brake hoses the loop the hose makes at the bottom and the angle of the banjo causes the hose to hit the sway bar end link.

Did I get the wrong hoses? They seem excessively long but work well with no interference at the top section, but the loop is too long on the bottom.

 

I'm at work right now, but I got my nephew to mock up the hose and take some pics.

Yes, this is a good place to ask the question for continuity's sake.

 

I can't believe 6+ years have already gone by since doing this with Doug.  A few years ago, I basically turned all the 1200 stuff over to Doug.  He bought the last of the brackets I had and he's selling them now.  I would have to refer people to him anytime someone asked a question, so it just seemed fair to let him make whatever money there was to be made on the brackets.  Quite honestly, I don't know the answer to your question.  I'm sure Doug will since he still deals with these parts on a regular basis.  I haven't touched them in a few years.  I'll pm you his email address.  If he doesn't respond, let me know and I'll call him directly to take a look at this post.

 

You can also find his email address with the 1200 brake kit listing on my site www.bluehandsinc.com

The brake line pictured above were made from ready made hoses and fittings were added, supplied by Oil Filter Service.

 

I have been looking into ready made hoses. The link below is for 86-89 Acura Intergra. They come 4 to a box , free shipping and $20.00

DNA Motoring Part#

SDD-BRLK039RD

 

There are two different lengths, so you can run the calipers in either leading or trailing positions- swap strut assemblies left to right and right to left for mounting them in leading position. There is a mounting bracket (look like a black grommet sorta kinda)  on each of the hoses which you can secure to the strut tube as you see fit.

Stock Intergra hoses SHOULD work, as these are replacement for stock hoses.

 

But, if you have a better  hose application to apply to this 200SX brake swap, please post pictures and what they are supposed to fit.

After surveying other 1200 owners using this brake kit, switching to an aftermarket B210 end links, like: http://www.rockauto....1210802&jsn=365

 

These links allow you to install short links, as you can shorten the spacer if necessary, This would provide the space needed for the 240sx front rubber brake hose.
