  1. Hi, Thinking of upgrading rear brakes on Zero, currently have 2l Sierra drums. They generally only just pass MOT and I have fitted new shoes and adjusted them. What do I to do the conversion to discs? I see kitspares to the brackets and there is some questions about fitting to the rear of the disc or front of the car. Any help appreciated.

  4. Hi all, I'm trying to source a replacement front off side brake caliper for my Robin Hood 2b but cant find a part number on it apart from 29P. Looking at the paperwork I have for the car the donor was a Ford Sierra 1982. Sorry for the quality of the pictures, I'll try and get some better ones uploaded tomorrow. Can anyone offer any help please. Thank you in advance Paul
  5. Hi all, I need some advice as I can't figure out what the best course of action is. I have fitted 2 rear sierra disc brake calipers to my GBS zero and now need some flexible hoses to connect to the chassis bulk head. My original plan was to use an M10 banjo on the caliper end and a female swivel union at the chassis end (I've used bulk head connectors to terminate the fixed lines). Is that the correct thinking? I can't get any good pictures of what other people have used on flexible lines so I'm not sure if I should use a banjo (rather than screwing straight into the caliper). Are
  6. Hi all, I have just this week placed the order for the basic chassis kit ( for ford 2L zetec ) and am now planning ancillery items such as brakes. Am I correct in assuming that a brake servo is not needed ? Also what are the merits / advantages of multi-pot callipers over single pot callipers or is it preferable to have say 4 pot callipers to help with stopping or will this just lock up the wheels with heavy breaking ?Regards Fil.
  7. Hi all, I have finally managed to get some time to start working on the car (yay!) having recently got married; now I can get on with the important things eh? Anyway, I am really struggling with brakes at the moment and I am sure that this question has been asked before (and answered) but I haven't been able to find it on google. 1. How do you know if a brake caliper is going to fit on your hub? Is it one-size-fits all? or do you need special hangers to attach the caliper to the hub? Any information (parts that would work would be nice too appreciated). I don't want to buy a calipe
  8. Hi all, At long last I've completed my Zero and with help from GBS it went through the IVA without too much problem. I'm now a fully fledged 'Hoodie'! My immediate problem is poor braking. The brakes have been bled and there is no air in the sytem. I've washed the discs in spirit to remove any residue. I've removed the brake pads and roughed them up. The master cylinder was a reconditioned Ford Sierra one (all new seals). I've been told the vehicle should stop on a sixpence (old money), unfortunately it doesn't. I've just done a 22 mile run today in the hope of bedding

  10. Hi, Ive been trying to bleed the brakes on my Zero (again) and have read through old posts so thought I'd start a new one. My Zero has discs all round and I have a brand new master cylinder and reservoir. I definitely have air some where because if I pump the brakes they will eventually firm up and work. I am loathe to start clamping the braided hoses to see if its one particulair corner and I have confirmed caliper fitting on the front, ie: front calipers nipple up and rears nipple down. I am lost can anyone help??? Hammy
