    Brakes For Zero

    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.

    Brake Questions, Please Help!

    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 caliper only to find it won't bolt to the sierra hub. 2. How do you work out what sort of brake joints to use? Is it better to use imperial/metric? Does it make any difference? Is either more prevelent? Can you mix and match (I don't mean use an imperial fitting with a metric bolt but rather have a joint in metric with imperial ends). 3. In the IVA, how do they inspect the brake pipes that go through the tunnel? I'm guessing you have to provide photos? I know that's a lot of questions but I just can't seem to find any answeres for this stuff. Also, is anybody near Leeds? Cheers, Andrew
