Sierra / Escort brake calliper refurb

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Hoping I can tap into the knowledge base of the RHOcar community

So I''m doing a refurb the front brake callipers of my Robin Hood 2B which when I brought it I understood to be based on a Ford Sierra 2.0l GLSi manufactured Dec 1988.  Needless to say the brake refurb kit I got has the wrong size pistons (they're too big).  The callipers on my 2b have a 54 mm piston which seems to suggest they are Escort callipers.  Where the callipers interchangeable between Escort and Sierra? Is it possible that Escort callipers are on the front end of my 2B or did some Sierras have a 54 mm piston?

All I'm looking to do is order the right refurb kit!

Any advice is gratefully received

 

Kevin

Have you got solid or vented discs and have you got discs on the back? Front calipers can be 53mm on 1.3, 1.6 and 2.0 cars without rear discs. Cars with rear discs have 60mm calipers.

More specifically this for 1988 2.0

a choice of 2 depending on rear brake setup.

Hi

 

Once again indebted to your greater wisdom!!! Thank you!

 

After much searching I've managed to find a refurb kit for the 54mm callipers.  And yes... drums on the rear
