Brake Caliper IdentificationHi 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
Flexible Brake Lines
Guest posted a topic in MechanicsHi 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 bulkhead connectors a waste of time? Do banjos cause problems? Some will suggest just buying the parts from kit spares but I haven't used the Ford OEM calipers (I got some Wilwood power lites instead) so I don't think the kit spares part would fit. I'm not planning on building the braided lines, I'm going to get Furore to make them as I've seen some good comments about them. Finally, do I need to use any threading compound for the brake lines (like one would with PTFE tape on plumbing)? Thanks in advance, Andrew
