Thanks Fisch!
 
Momentum hasn't always been easy to maintain, but posting what I am doing on this site motivates me to keep on keeping on, even if there are long spells between meaningful progress.  I refuse to be one of the "got in over my head and now I'm gonna sell/scrap it" statistics.  

your already so far past that man. Good work.

In Topic: Datsun 1200 Upgrade front brake caliper

16 April 2016 - 05:19 PM

 

I'm running the mkclots/morrisun front brakes, they fit under 13" turbines with minor caliper shaping.

another, more indepth swap could be zx struts with a wildwood ultralight 4 piston caliper for a 3/4 width rotor.20140502_205327_zpsciazpp08.jpg

its a smaller caliper that works alittle different than the zx caliper, so you can move it in real close for clearance. 13x7et0 libre has plenty of room

 

df, I had to use a 210 centerlink, pitman arm, and steering arm, (in an emergency) i  found that the centerlink was 14plus mm wider from inner tierod to inner tierod.

i figured it was becase the lca pivot was moved outward slaightly. about 8-10mm per side. i think that is why people assume it would widen the width, because the track width is wider, but extended between the lca pivots and inner tie rods.

 

 

 

Thanks!

 

Do you use 13" wheels?

 

Which model is your wilwood brake caliper? I made i quick search and i cantt find ...

 

 

id don't have any more info than that sorry. I ordered the "ultralight 4 piston " calipers from wilwoods website. they have them for several thickness of rotors.

those are 13s, and you can see I have lots of room, some wheels fit different. my steering knuckle and outer tie rod are closer than my caliper, the the wheel
